The United States Trustee seeks resumes from persons wishing to be considered for appointment as a standing trustee to administer cases filed under chapter 13 of title 11 of the United States Code (Bankruptcy Code). The appointment is for cases filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for district(s) listed below. Standing trustees receive compensation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 586(e)(1)(A). The minimum qualifications for appointment as a standing trustee are set forth in 28 C.F.R. § 58.4. To be eligible for appointment, an applicant must possess strong administrative, financial, and interpersonal skills. Management, fiduciary, and bankruptcy experience is desirable but not mandatory. A successful applicant will be required to undergo a background check and must qualify to be bonded. Although standing trustees are not federal employees, appointments are made consistent with federal Equal Opportunity policies, which prohibit discrimination in employment.
