    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 be responsible for providing expert analysis, advice, guidance, and interpretation on national program issues, many of which are complex, controversial, and precedent setting.

    Typical duties include:

    • Develops and coordinates major national programs and manages administrative support functions relating to emergency preparedness, continuity, contingency, and security policy issues.
    • Manages nationwide projects for FEMA. Performs technical writing functions, requiring substantial knowledge of the various areas of emergency management and of the specialized terminology required.
    • Develops, updates, and maintains a program budget.
    • Provides findings and recommendations for solutions to major issues with short and long term horizons to high-ranking career officials in FEMA and partner agencies.
