    Responsibilities

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is calling on those who want to help protect American interests and secure our Nation. DHS Components work collectively to prevent terrorism; secure borders and our transportation systems; protect the President and other dignitaries; enforce and administer immigration laws; safeguard cyberspace; and ensure resilience to disasters. We achieve these vital missions through a diverse workforce spanning hundreds of occupations. Make an impact; join DHS.

    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.

    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 Supervisory Management and Program Analyst. Typical assignments include: 

    • Overseeing the development of preparedness assessments within the national preparedness goal core capabilities. 
    • Developing strategies for preparedness investments that close capability gaps and reduce risk.
    • Leading FEMA’s risk and capability assessment methodologies through the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment/Stakeholder Preparedness Review.
    • Providing advice and recommendations to senior executives on programmatic policy and execution as it relates to national preparedness assessments.
    • Assigning and evaluating work through subordinate managers and supervisors, providing for staff development, training, and support services, selecting or recommending selection of staff, conducting performance appraisals, and carrying out the Agency’s personnel management and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) program goals and objectives.
