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.

    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.

    • Providing direct support to the Assistant Administrator and Deputy Assistant Administrator in the coordination and integration of policies, procedures, guidelines and activities to ensure effective program delivery.
    • Providing direct support to the Assistant Administrator and Deputy Assistant Administrator for internal and external communication and correspondence.
    • Working as part of the Directorate front office team to manage work assignments, projects, deadlines and Directorate-wide initiatives to further the Directorate’s priorities.
