Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident.

    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.

    This position is in FEMA’s Resilience, National Preparedness Directorate (NPD). In this position, you will serve as a Management and Program Analyst in the NPD Action Office. NPD is responsible for comprehensive preparedness cycle of planning, organizing and equipping, training and exercising evaluating, and improvement planning.

    Typical duties include:

    • Coordination of documents for review and approval throughout NPD.
    • Review and ensure materials are properly packaged, appropriate for leadership review, grammatically correct, consistent with Government Printing Office and Resilience writing style guidelines, and in the proper formats and templates.
    • Ensure all correspondence are entered in to appropriate folders daily and organized so that they can easily be pulled for use in informing future, similar inquiries.
    • Communicate with FEMA offices (e.g. Executive Secretariat, Office of Chief Counsel, Office of Policy and Program Analysis, etc.) to track status of packages.
    • Ensure compliance with existing Records Management policies, procedures and systems.
    • Interface with FEMA External Affairs (i.e., Public Affairs, and Intergovernmental Affairs) to coordinate communication-related materials, press releases, fact sheets, etc.

    Promotion Potential: Future promotions will be dependent on your ability to perform the duties at a higher level, the continuing need for an employee assigned to the higher level, and administrative approval.
