We achieve these vital missions through a diverse workforce spanning hundreds of occupations. Make an impact; join DHS.

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.

    • Applying strategic, policy, and managerial analysis to complex problems as a senior expert concerning strategic and long-term effectiveness of operations and programs.
    • Implementing strategic planning and applying data analytics (qualitative & quantitative analysis of data sets) to inform senior leadership.
    • Developing division priorities & goals through annual and/or multi-year planning documents.
    • Managing numerous diverse issues, at times simultaneously, to ensure program goals and objectives are met.
