    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 Supervisory Emergency Management Specialist (Policy), you will serve as the Division Director for the Strategy and Policy Division within Office of Policy & Program Analysis (OPPA) responsible for facilitating and managing a variety of high priority, cross-Agency strategy, policy, and program priorities designed to help achieve the Agency’s strategic goals. Typical duties include:

    • Coordination of FEMA’s internal policy development process;
    • Coordination of the FEMA’s participation and engagement in intra- and inter-Agency policy development;
    • Coordinating the development of the Agency’s quadrennial strategic plan;
    • Coordinating FEMA’s input to the Department of Homeland Security quadrennial strategic plan;
    • Leading implementation of policy and legislative priorities (e.g., Disaster Recovery Reform Act); and
    • Leading and contributing to analysis informing the Agency’s policy, legislative, and resource planning decisions.
