    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 serve as the Supervisory Human Resources Specialist, responsible for planning, controlling, directing and coordinating the work of human resources staff in support of staffing and recruitment requirements within the Office of the Chief Component Human Capital Officer (OCCHCO). Typical duties include:

    • Providing supervisor oversight for the day-to-day supervision of human resources staff.
    • Developing and implementing policies and procedures; and interpreting human resources management laws and regulations.
    • Collaborating with the Branch Chief on the formulation of short and long range plans, goals, and objectives.
    • Participating in meetings with other management officials to discuss major program changes, reorganizations, budget projections and staffing needs.
    • Planning, controlling, directing and coordinating the work of specialist, technical and administrative support personnel engaged in carrying out the various functions in the designated program areas.
