FEMA is hiring Louisiana residents who live in areas affected by last year’s hurricanes to join their recovery team as temporary employees. Hiring temporary staff locally allows FEMA to diversify the workforce while affording opportunities for Louisianans.

Jobs are available for Voluntary Agency Liaison Specialists in Lafayette, Alexandria, and Lake Charles for temporary positions assisting with disaster response and recovery efforts. The job posting is open until January 21, 2021.

FEMA is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Salaries are comparable to local pay rates. Most temporary local hires are employed through a streamlined rather than a competitive process. A local hire’s term of employment is 120 days, though it may be extended in 120-day increments up to one year.

Visit USAJOBS.gov for additional information, including job responsibilities and compensation.

In order to be considered for employment:

  • You must be a U.S. Citizen
  • You must successfully pass a background investigation, and
  • Selective Service registration is required for males born after 12/31/59.
