    Responsibilities

    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 an Administrative Specialist to the Deputy Chief Component Human Capital Officer (DCCHCO). Typical assignments include:

    • Receiving incoming calls and visitors from within and outside the agency. 
    • Monitoring the status of actions in an automated action tracking system to ensure assigned actions are completed on time.
    • Scheduling, coordinating meetings and conference calls for DCCHCO.
    • Researching and providing materials/information required for meetings.
    • Composing correspondence on own initiative or on the basis of brief oral or written instructions from the DCCHCO.
    • Coordinating all travel arrangements for the DCCHCO.

    Travel Required

    Occasional travel - In addition to the travel and relocation that maybe required by emergency assignments, this position may require occasional non-emergency travel.
