     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 serve as a member of the Office of the Chief Information Officer, as a first-line supervisor responsible for a staff of Information Technology (IT) Specialists who perform a wide range of IT Local Area Network (LAN) and desktop management and related support activities that extend and apply to the entire FEMA enterprise. Typical assignments include: 

    • Serving as subject-matter expert on LAN installation, management, and support of servers; user data backup and recovery; telephony services; and remote access.
    • Serving as subject-matter expert on End User Computing (EUC), also referred to as Desktop Support, which includes imaging, maintaining, and installation for desktop, laptop, tablet, and phone hardware and software.
    • Communicating with internal and external stakeholders with professionalism.
    • Managing IT workforce planning and personnel management issues, including recruitment, retention, and training, personnel actions, performance management, and work scheduling.
