    The individual will serve as a Supervisory Field Delivery Lead in the Public Assistance Field Delivery Section at FEMA Headquarters, where they will oversee a senior-level team providing consultative services to disasters implementing the PA Program. The Field Delivery Support section will coordinate delivery of the Public Assistance Program among all open disasters; continuously monitor open disaster performance to identify successes and emerging challenges; coach and mentor Public Assistance staff; and support Regions in developing Disaster Operating Profiles. The ideal candidate will have experience in the following: leading implementation of nation-wide change initiatives, and significant experience leading Public Assistance field operations. This position starts at a salary of $103,106 (IC-14)

    Apply for this exciting opportunity to become a member of the Recovery Directorate team within FEMA.

    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.

    This position is being announced under FEMA's Cadre of On-call Response/Recovery Employee (CORE) Program. This is a temporary appointment in the Excepted Service, not to exceed 2 years, with the option to extend based on workload and funding availability. Veterans Preference does not apply to the CORE selection process.
