NAF Human Resources & Civilian Personnel
Civilian Employment at Shaw AFB is coordinated through two offices, NAF Human Resources and Civilian Personnel. NAF Human Resources handles all Non Appropriated Fund employment. The Civilian Personel office handles all Appropriated Fund positions. Both offices are located in the MPF, Bldg 1118, located at 504 Shaw Drive on the second floor.
The NAF (Non Appropriated Fund) Human Resources Office is part of the Force Support Squadron (FSS). The mission of FSS is taking care of Air Force people while sustaining air combat forces through customer-focused programs fostering espirit de corps and quality of life. FSS operates a variety of activities. Civilian NAF employees are employed by the United States Air Force and paid from Non-Appropriated Funds (NAF). Although NAF employees are federal employees of the Department of Defense (DoD), NAF employees are separate and distinct from other Air Force civilian employees.
Air Force civilian employees are paid from funds appropriated (APF) by Congress. Career fields are varied and include civil engineering, communications and information, contracting, financial management, history and museums, science and engineering, and logistics. The Shaw AFB Civilian Personnel Office provides hands-on, first class internal and external customer service, assisting managers and supervisors in establishing and filling new positions, in-processing employees, funding and updating training, leave issues, performance awards, disciplinary actions, and a full range of employee-and labor-management related issues.
Civil Service job announcements for Shaw AFB are handled by the Air Force Personnel Center (AFPC) at Randolph AFB, TX. Those announcements can be found at usajobs.gov.
