Career Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities

We encourage individuals with disabilities to join us at DLA. We place qualified individuals with disabilities into positions that maximize their talents.

DLA has a proven track record of exercising special appointing authorities to recruit and hire persons with disabilities. In fact, recently, DLA was recognized as the leader within the Department of Defense in recruiting people with disabilities. If you have the experience and competencies for our advertised career vacancies or you are looking for a specific career and location, we are specifically looking for you.

To DLA, your disability is not a detriment. Instead, it's the opportunity to see if you have the talents and ability to become an asset to our business, while giving you a chance to see if DLA is right for you.

You should have a certification statement from a counselor from a State Vocational Rehabilitation Agency (SVRA) or the Department of Veterans Affair's Vocational Rehabilitation Office. Select for more information on certification of disability.

"I am hearing impaired, but DLA offers sign language classes, and my coworkers all learned to sign. It makes me feel a part of the team because communication is not a problem. DLA’s culture does not make me feel different; I feel like a valued contributor to the DLA mission."
