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

Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need.

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.

    In this position, you will provide a variety of analytical, program development, program implementation and program coordination support to the Director in furtherance of the Agency's international strategic and operational objectives.

    Typical assignments include: 

    • Serving as a liaison with North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), NATO Civil Emergency Planning Committee (CEPC), NATO CEPC working groups and other international partners and organizations as well as with groups  both inside and outside of FEMA, often on highly sensitive or complicated policy issues such as providing cross[1]border mutual assistance during disaster responses and other issues of concern to key stakeholders.
    • Prepares briefing materials for interdepartmental meetings covering topics related to international emergency management and/or homeland defense topics.
    • Providing policy and technical guidance, developing project plans, establishing technical work groups and creating workplans for FEMA’s NATO CEPC priorities in alignment with FEMA’s strategic plan and the annual Administrator’s Planning Guidance.
    • Developing cross-border mutual assistance strategies, tactics and initiatives designed to strengthen internal and external understanding of the International Assistance System (IAS), reduce U.S. barriers to cross-border mutual aid, and to enhance national-to-national emergency management capabilities
