    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 policy analyst reporting to the Policy Section Chief, supports of the oversight and management of the policy agenda for ORR.

    Typical assignments include:

    • Coordinating high-level assignments and issues.
    • Providing analytical support to senior staff in reviewing, analyzing, and editing various documents, including correspondence, doctrine, policy, legislation, General Accounting Office (GAO) and/or Inspector General (IG) reports.
    • Formulating recommendations to senior managers based on knowledge of current issues, legislation, programs and regulations.
    • Assisting in the identification, analysis, and evaluation of Office of Recovery and Response (ORR) issues.
    • Assessing effectiveness of programs and recommending adjustments to the organizational structures and approaches of the directorate, as needed, as they relate to the realignment of functional responsibilities.

    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.
