    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 the position of Program Analyst, you will be responsible for providing senior leadership with program evaluation results that are utilized in the resource management process for greater program effectiveness. Typical duties include:

    • Analyzing competing requirements, constantly changing schedules, and variations and develops alternative recommendations for realignment of schedules and reallocation of available resources among program elements to best fulfill mission requirements.
    • Leading a team, or participate as a team member, in expansive studies requiring the participation of multiple subject matter specialists.
    • Exercising influence and persuasion when participating in conferences and meetings to achieve a common understanding of the problem and arriving at a satisfactory solution.
    • Conducting quantitative and qualitative analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of program operations in meeting established agency goals and objectives.
