What is NAF?
Non-appropriated Fund (NAF) Employment. NAF employment is federal employment, but is not considered “Civil Service” employment. The difference between NAF employment and Civil Service employment is the manner in which positions are funded. Although there are similarities between the two systems, each is separate and distinct from the other and operates under its own personnel policies and procedures.
Civil Service positions are funded by congressional appropriations, and NAF is primarily funded by revenue generated by services activities including clubs, restaurants, bowling centers, outdoor recreation, and more!
Kadena Human Resources Office is responsible for all Non-Appropriated Fund (NAF) job opportunities on Kadena Air Base.

Accounting • Administrative • Cashier • Child Care • Customer Service Food Service • Human Resources • Marketing • Recreation
