    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 the position of Executive Assistant, you will be responsible for providing executive support to senior management within the Office of the Component Chief Human Capital Officer (OCCHCO) Executive Office. Typical duties include:

    • Managing the dynamic schedules of the executive leadership while prioritizing meeting requests and de-conflicting overlapping appointments.
    • Making all local and non-local travel arrangements for executive leadership, ensuring all travel authorizations and vouchers are completed in the travel system in a timely manner and in accordance with Federal Travel Regulations.
    • Collating read ahead materials and developing comprehensive briefing packages in advance of all meetings and trips.
    • Performing a variety of special assignments spanning multiple operational areas and crossing multi-functional and organizational line.
    • Ensuring proper routing of all documentation for leadership signature.
    • Identifying and developing integrated staff actions or resolving problems which directly affect the accomplishment of principal program goals and objectives.
