The best thing people with tell you is that it is mostly an administrative job handling paperwork and background and security clearance information.

From the FBI:

Security Specialists provide direct support and service to the administration of the FBI Personnel Security Program by conducting complex security assessment investigations and rendering appropriate adjudications. They are tasked with reviewing and critically analyzing incoming material/correspondence, and outlining possible security concerns relating to complex security assessment issues.

Preparing security plans
Interpreting policies relating to FBI security functions
Participating in inspections of designated secure areas
Preparing summaries
Candidates for this position also require knowledge of security equipment, devices, and procedures used in planning and implementing security measures for the protection of classified and sensitive data, personnel or facilities. This includes a variety of alarm and detection devices, closed circuit systems, and locking devices for doors, windows, vaults and gates.

Yes. For now, at least. Since the results are good for life, maybe I'll decide to revisit it sometime.

Is there anywhere on the FBI Jobs website that describes what the application process is like for this position in terms of the stages that you go through?

It's an administrative job so it probably doesn't require much. You'll probably need to do the usual interview, background check and what not but nothing close to the requirements of Special Agent or Intelligence Analyst because those jobs require so much more like testing, clearance investigations, polygraphs ect.

However, there isn't much out there about the process about the security specialist job. Try searching the forums here, it might be your best bet.

All FBI jobs require a clearance and go through a background investigation process.

No its an administrative position for security work like clearances and such. I believe the FBI Police is solely responsible for actual security.

Per the FBI Website:

Security Specialists provide direct support and service to the administration of the FBI Personnel Security Program by conducting complex security assessment investigations and rendering appropriate adjudications. They are tasked with reviewing and critically analyzing incoming material/correspondence, and outlining possible security concerns relating to complex security assessment issues. They also determine merit for granting, continuing, and/or revoking security clearances and access authorizations. Further duties include, but are not limited to:

Preparing security plans
Interpreting policies relating to FBI security functions
Participating in inspections of designated secure areas
Preparing summaries

Candidates for this position also require knowledge of security equipment, devices, and procedures used in planning and implementing security measures for the protection of classified and sensitive data, personnel or facilities. This includes a variety of alarm and detection devices, closed circuit systems, and locking devices for doors, windows, vaults and gates.

Hey Everyone! I don't really know much about this position aside from what I've read on here and the job description. Recently received email that it was forwarded to a hiring manager. Anyone in this chat currently in this role? I also applied for the IA position too.
