    Responsibilities

    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 be responsible for ensuring equal opportunity for all employees and applicants for employment and to guarantee protection for the civil supporting oversight to ensure fulfillment of goals and objectives of the FEMA strategic plans to make facilities and services at FEMA accessible to citizens and employees with disabilities. Typical assignments include:

    • Ensuring that the disaster-related needs of persons with disabilities and elderly persons are provided for in State, local, and Federal emergency planning.
    • Participating in interest-based negotiations and negotiations of civil rights complaint settlements.
    • Writing Civil Rights program policies, directives and instructions for FEMA Develops initiatives for addressing external-facing accessibility challenges, environmental justice issues, and internal training and technical assistance.

    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.
