Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need.

    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 supervisor responsible for the administration of one or more programs of the Office of the Chief Component Human Capital Officer.

    Typical assignments include:

    • Referring to and complying with all applicable regulatory and procedural guides.
    • Planning, controlling, directing, and coordinating the work of specialist, technical, and administrative support personnel engaged in carrying out the various functions in the designated program areas.
