    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 this position, you will service as a Human Resources Specialist performing a variety of complex duties and providing continuing technical advice, guidance, and assistance to managers and supervisor. Typical assignments include:

    • Providing advice and assistance to supervisors in simple and complex discipline and adverse action cases.
    • Communicating orally and in writing to operating officials and others on the technical and operational aspects of Employee Relations programs.
    • Applying advanced employee relations laws, regulations, principles, precedents and policy sufficient to serve as an agency or equivalent level senior consultant.
    • Serving as a FEMA liaison on Employee Relations issues pertaining to the designated program area.

    Promotion Potential: Future promotions will be dependent on your ability to perform the duties at a higher level, the continuing need for an employee assigned to the higher level, and administrative approval.
