    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 support management and staff on matters relating to human resources, manpower, travel, purchasing, inventory, information technology and training. Typical assignments include:

    • Processing of incoming and outgoing mail to include publications and distribution of records management; call screening; calendar management for senior leaders.
    • Preparing of Requests for Personnel Action (RPAs) and maintenance of government personnel records; forms control; arranging for acquisition of supplies, office furniture, and equipment.
    • Scheduling  and coordinating office moves and space utilization; coordinating public relations activities including official visitors;
    • Processing timekeeping and payroll records; and preparing of recurring reports as well as review of travel orders and travel vouchers while publishing administrative notices as necessary to assure information is distributed on a timely basis.
