    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.

    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 ensure the administration of floodplain management and insurance mitigation programs and plans to support individuals and communities affected by disasters. You will exercise a broad range of managerial authorities and responsibilities for all professional and support staff of the branch in planning and executing mitigation programs. Typical assignments include: 

    • Serving as a liaison between the Mitigation Division Director, Regional Administrator and headquarters leadership.

    • Advising headquarters leadership on floodplain management and insurance matters affecting or impacting the Region.

    • Providing guidance to the Mitigation Division Director on policy, programs, operations, and administrative matters.

    • Planning, assigning and reviewing work accomplished by subordinates, evaluating work performance and providing advice on both work and administrative matters.
