    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 creating an integrated, streamlined human capital framework and process in order to meet critical manpower requirements.  This position is located within the Office of the Component Chief Human Capital Officer (OCCHCO) Executive Office.  Typical duties include:

    • Managing process enhancements and varied special projects to execute solutions to attain key performance improvement or reduce risk.
    • Preparing written reports and other project-related correspondence for internal and external distribution.
    • Maintaining a broad knowledge of operations to ensure that actions required in support of designated OCCHCO programs are properly identified and established.
    • Briefing agency senior leadership on project status and proposed areas of study.
    • Serving as a change management agent to assist OCCHCO leadership in the creation of strategies for implementation of new methods or organizational changes that maximize employee adoption and usage with minimum resistance.
    • Defining project scope, requirements, and deliverables in order to develop, modify, and provide input or improvements to project plans.
