Join the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence!

It takes thoughtful, creative people from different backgrounds to address some of the biggest national security and foreign policy challenges of our time. It also takes an entire team united behind a critical mission to get the job done.  How we use our financial tools and authorities to get at U.S. adversaries is what we spend our time thinking about. Service and mission are what drive us.

What We Do

TFI applies Treasury’s unique policy, enforcement, intelligence, and regulatory tools to identify, disrupt and disable terrorists, criminals, and other national security threats to the United States and to protect the domestic and international financial systems from abuse by illicit actors.

How We Do It

TFI uses a variety of pressure, preventative, and diagnostic tools such as financial sanctions and international engagement to achieve maximum impact against bad actors.

Whether it is terrorist networks, rogue regimes, human traffickers, cyber criminals, WMD proliferators, drug kingpins, corrupt officials, or other emerging threats, strategically applying these tools is what makes TFI successful at addressing global threats and other risks to the financial system. 

Who We Are

As the national security arm of the Treasury Department, each TFI component brings its own unique skills and authorities to the table to help address some of our most pressing foreign policy and national security challenges.

  • The Office of Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes (TFFC) formulates and coordinates anti-money laundering and combatting the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) policies, in addition to developing strategies to deploy the full range of financial authorities to combat national security threats;
  • The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) administers and enforces financial sanctions;
  • The Office of Intelligence and Analysis (OIA) is one of eighteen U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) agencies and provides critical intelligence to Treasury’s decision makers;
  • Treasury's Executive Office for Asset Forfeiture (TEOAF) administers Treasury’s Forfeiture Fund and partners with and supports Treasury and DHS federal law enforcement agencies;
  • The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is an independent bureau that administers the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), which imposes anti-money laundering, terrorist financing, and other financial crimes compliance obligations on financial institutions. 

Who We Work With

TFI works with other U.S. federal agencies, state and local governments, financial regulators, foreign governments, international bodies, private financial institutions, and other private entities around the world to strengthen financial systems against illicit actors, develop creative alternatives to military action, and bolster our diplomacy where possible.

What We Look for in Potential Candidates

TFI prides itself on cultivating a diverse and well-rounded workforce from a variety of disciplines. The TFI team is made up of regional and financial experts, economists, intelligence analysts, lawyers, visual information analysts, security specialists, and much more.

Successful employees have strong research, writing, and briefing/representational skills cultivated from universities, financial institutions, think tanks, financial technology startups, consulting firms, and other government agencies – just to name a few!

Wherever you come from, a great TFI employee is one who is informed, curious, creative, and driven by the opportunity to directly support Treasury’s national security mission.

Benefits We Provide

In addition to Treasury's benefits package, some TFI offices may also employ various flexible, telework, remote work schedules to support employee work-life balance. Schedules may vary across offices and positions to provide maximum flexibility while maintaining TFI’s national security mission requirements.

Some TFI offices may also participate in the Federal Student Loan Repayment Program, which permits agencies to repay Federally-insured student loans as a recruitment or retention incentive for candidates or current employees of the agency.

TFI’s OIA participates in the Pat Roberts Intelligence Scholarship Program, a monetary incentive to be used for academic training (current or past educational expenses) for IC employees who possess identified STEM critical skills. Qualified employees may receive $5,000 - $25,000 per fiscal year, with a lifetime limit of $50,000 over a career in the IC. 

When possible, TFI also supports employees on internal TFI and Treasury Department rotational opportunities, as well as exclusive, high-profile opportunities at the National Security Council, Congressional fellowships, and overseas Treasury Financial Attaché assignments.

Finally, TFI maintains a robust Learning and Employee Development program, including a specialized Core Knowledge Curriculum, and several monthly programs that support employee development across a wide-range of TFI-related topics.
