(CNSNews.com) The IRS is looking to hire a diversity and inclusion specialist, with a minimum salary of $123,758 a year.
The opening for a full-time Supervisory Diversity and Inclusion Specialist at the agencys national headquarters in Washington, D.C. was announced on June 11 and is open until June 24.
The Diversity Specialist will serve as a change agent to provide strategies, solutions, training, tools, resources and thought leadership on diversity and foster inclusion across the workplace and build internal awareness for diversity and inclusion throughout the agency.
Among the day-to-day job duties: Hear and resolve complaints from employees; "effect minor disciplinary measures, such as warnings and reprimands"; and identify developmental and training needs of employees.
The job listing comes amid allegations that the IRS engaged in viewpoint discrimination by singling out conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status ahead of the 2010 and 2012 elections. The IRS subjected some conservative groups to lengthy and intrusive personal questions, which in some cases delayed their tax-exempt status for years.
The diversity specialist job has a salary range of $123,758 to $155,500 a year, plus a very generous benefits package.
The listing describes the specialist as providing expertise to problem-solve, design, and deliver business-unit-wide diversity and inclusion solutions.
At the IRS, you will use your skills in accounting, business, finance, law enforcement, information technology, advocacy and more to help make America stronger, the listing says.
The job listing does not specify a minimum education level, and it says no prior federal experience is required.
It does require at least one year of specialized experience, and the successful applicant will have a "thorough knowledge" of the circumstances associated with diversity and inclusive issues and be able to "deal tactfully and persuasively with agency management, executives, and others to resolve program issues which are often controversial and sensitive in nature..."
The candidate must also understand the views, values, perspectives of diverse demographics including, but not limited to, generations, veterans, virtual and remote employees, mixed-race employees, religions, and internal and external employees.
This knowledge allows the incumbent to apply a broader, more current and more inclusive definition of diversity beyond the traditionally-recognized diversity groups, the job listing says.
On top of the six-figure salary, the IRS says, Our comprehensive benefits are very generous -- helping you to reach your personal goals by supporting your professional growth, health, well-being and your family needs.
Last month, a report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration revealed that the IRS targeted Tea Party groups with names such as patriot in their titles, requiring them to complete lengthy personal questionnaires (often multiple times) and having their nonprofit status delayed, sometimes for more than three years.
Several IRS officials have retired or been placed on administrative leave in light of the scandal, including former IRS commissioner Steven Miller and Lois Lerner, the director of the tax-exempt organizations division, who was placed on paid leave after refusing to resign.
What do you want to bet the person will be a Black, Hispanic, transgendered lesbian who hates the Tea Party? Also a Democrat bundler.
looks like that Diversity Studies degree might have been worth it after all...
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I’ll take it. I like “diversity” and am “inclusive”. I have a hamburger with ketchup, sometimes also with relish, sometimes potato chips , fried onions, mushrooms, lettuce and tomato on it.
Now if that is not “diversity” and “inclusion”, I’ll become a vegetarian.
Actually I think this is the perfect job for Janet Napolitano. No explanation needed, n’est pas?

The motto for Iowa State University used to be “in search of excellence.” They are at least honest, the motto and goal is diversity.
DIVERSITY IS A CODE-WORD for “NON-WHITE.”
Wake up people!!
I like your numbers. It’s only fair.
Wow. A salary like that could inflict upon the recipient a great deal of progressive, self-loathing, anti-capitalist angst.
Is the infliction of such progressive, self-loathing, anti-capitalist angst by an employer something for which the afflicted LIFER/REMF employee can apply to toward disability points?
If they could hire people who could do the tasks assigned to them, without drama or angering the customers, that would be great.
It’s because there is no longer a GOP. You cannot have leadership of a party that does not exist. There is the Democrat party and the RINO party. In other words we have the Democrat party I and II. Forget the Repub. party, it is gone. Instead we should focus on getting the Tea party front and center if we are to save this nation from the communists, fascists and foreign invaders otherwise we are going to end up with the same sham as last election: The same party running against itself.
Conservatives need not apply.
Sell your soul and your fellow citizen job.
