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 lead the development and implementation of social media communication strategy and coordinate daily with other External Affairs staff and FEMA program offices to develop public messaging on social media platforms. You will also be responsible for the Region I SharePoint platform, including technical program requirements and training for other SharePoint users.
Typical assignments include:
- Working with internal partners to obtain the necessary information to ensure survivors and stakeholders are provided with accurate and timely responses.
- Providing guidance to other digital communication staff at Headquarters, regional, and field offices on social content development.
- Leading research on emerging opportunities in social media and digital communication to engage those impacted by disasters.
- Analyzing social media metrics to gauge the effectiveness of FEMA's outreach to those impacted by disasters.
- Creating and refining reference material for External Affairs staff related to effective social media content and engagement.
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.
Occasional travel - Occasional non-emergency travel may be required.
