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

    When disaster strikes, America looks to FEMA. Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need.

    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 an advisor, technical representative, and engineering expert in support of the National Flood Insurance Program and Mitigation Division. Typical assignments include: 

    • Providing expert technical direction to internal and external stakeholders related to flood risk studies and Risk Map Program mapping.
    • Collaborating with Federal Agencies, State agencies, and local governments in the development and review of flood hazard information.
    • Providing comprehensive technical, administrative and engineering advice and assistance to internal and external customers.
    • Serving in grants administration and contracting functions, including Contracting Officer's Technical Representative.

    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.
