    When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Now FEMA looks to you. 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. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.

    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.

    In this position, you will serve as a liaison between management and the Office of the Chief Component Human Capital Office (OCCHCO) on such issues as recruitment and placement, management-employee relations, and labor relations, as well as position classification and Human Resource development as program specialist for activity.  

    Typical assignments include:

    • Assisting with the recruitment and hiring of additional CORE (Cadre of On-Call Response/Recovery Employees) staff to support other Divisional increases in workload while maintaining our readiness posture in the Region and Related Areas of Responsibilities (AOR);
    • Managing various ESB (Employee Services Branch) functions such as payroll, maintaining employee records, creating organization charts, report and performing data analytical to support senior leadership;
    • Drafting written reports, gathering information and presenting written reports or briefings;
    • Coordinating long-range work planning to meet strategic goals
    • Providing policy and guidance, including performing training to Regional staff for a better understanding of employment laws and regulations; and
    • Supporting disaster deployments as deployable field asset to monitor, conduct just-in-time training for field staff, and supporting my Regional RSOI (Reception, Staging, Onward movement, Integration) or field deployments in Region IX Area of Responsibilities (AOR).

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.

    Travel Required
