Responsibilities

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. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.

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 Executive Officer to the Director, Deputy Director, and/or Sector/Section Chief on complex program management and coordination issues within a program area such as Water, Education, Energy, Housing, Health & Social Services, or the Chief of Staff's Office. In this position, you will meet and consult with various levels of Leadership to resolve issues in financial management, human resources related affairs, and other related operational functions. Typical assignments include:

  • Providing expert advice and coordination on all administrative management aspects of a program area or project, including budget formulation and annual operating plan development, performance measurements, staff planning, and resource allocations

  • Monitoring complex and highly visible projects

  • Executing and implementing policies and procedures related to emergency management activities such as financial management, human resources and managing operational functions

  • Developing wide range of qualitative and quantitative analytical and evaluative methods and techniques for assessing and improvement of organizations effectiveness and efficiency

Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee's ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.

Travel Required
