    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 senior analyst and advisor to management on the evaluation of the productivity and efficiency of managed work.

    • Performs as a highly experienced management reviewer whose work involves assessments of pertinent assets and resources such as staff, funding, equipment, and facilities and how supporting administrative work processes interact to support the agency’s mission.
    • Develops plans and approaches for subject matter reviews as determined and established at senior levels.
    • Utilizes advanced quantitative analytical techniques and methodologies, such as regression analysis, mathematical programming, modeling, or automated tools.
    • Manages or reviews complex projects to collect, analyze, and present data on appropriate topics from a variety of traditional an nontraditional sources.
    • Uses advanced investigative techniques to address unexpected issues and their anomalies; and to reach sound management compromises.

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.
