Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need.

We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce.

    The ideal candidate must have extensive financial system change management and business process re-engineering experience with a high level of professionalism as well as productive collaboration and motivational skills. This position starts at a salary of $96,970 (GS-13). Apply for this exciting opportunity to become a member of the Office of the Chief Financial Officer, Financial Systems Modernization team within FEMA.

    EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.
