    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 exercise oversight responsibility at the regional level of FEMA work that involves policy issues dealing with immediate Federal response to intentional and/or unintentional crises, disasters, other humanitarian emergencies, hazards, or natural and manmade/technological (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, high-yield explosives) incidents. Typical assignments include:

    • Managing all planning response planning projects in coordination with internal and external stakeholders.
    • Developing needed analysis in coordination with internal and external stakeholders.
    • Developing, proposing, and managing contracts related to planning and acting as an Subject Matter Expert on the development of these contracts.
    • Developing, proposing, and managing the planning Branch budget.
    • Coordinating input needed for training and exercises.

    Travel Required

    50% or less - 50% domestic travel may be required.
