Is it possible for directors of HR to refer to the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) or a similar scale? Perhpas they could state "Must read and write English at or above level -4 on the ILR scale" or something similar.

Just my 1.5 cents.

When I've written job descriptions where this needed to be said at all
(some student internships), I've specified "native-level fluency". This
sends the message about desired skill level while not limiting it to
actual natives (many of whom would not qualify).
