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 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 be serve as a Management and Program Analyst for Region Five. Typical assignments include:

  • Analyzing and advising management on the effectiveness of programs and operations.
  • Providing advice and assistance to management on direction of analytical resources.
  • Developing position papers for presentation to decision makers.

    Additional duties may include but are not limited to the following:

    • Applying laws, regulations and policies in the review of 406 Mitigation projects.
    • Providing technical assistance to Public Assistance (PA) in identifying, developing, and/or reviewing PA projects for sound mitigation techniques (reconstruction guidance and 406 mitigation opportunities).
    • Providing training on the benefits, processes and policies for 406 Mitigation projects.
    • Providing support to State and Tribal partners at internal and external briefings, including but not limited to presentations and technical assistance on 406 Mitigation project opportunities and benefits.
    • Supporting management of 406 Mitigation field operations.

      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.

      The qualification requirements listed below must be met within 30 days of the closing date of the announcement.

      To qualify for this position at the IC-12 level (starting salary $85,084), your resume must clearly demonstrate at least one full year of specialized experience equivalent to the next lower grade (IC-11) in the Federal Service.

      • Analyzing and/or identifying issues and providing recommendations to leadership;
      • Communicating both orally and written to individuals in management and leadership positions to help inform decision-making; and
      • Developing and delivering process recommendations to leadership.

        Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g. Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community, student, social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills, and provides valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience.

        Your application must show that you meet all requirements for this position. You may be found "not qualified" if you do not possess the minimum competencies required for the position.

In addition to describing duties performed, applicants must provide the exact dates of each period of employment (from MM/DD/YY to MM/DD/YY) and the number of hours worked per week if part time.
