Release Date Release Number
DR-4512-VA NR 002

Norfolk, Virginia — FEMA is hiring local residents to assist in the COVID-19 vaccination efforts currently underway at the joint Community Vaccination Center located at the Military Circle Mall. Local Hire positions include Non-Medical Emergency Management Specialists, Media Relations Specialists, Intergovernmental Specialists, Creative Specialists and Digital Communications Specialists.

Residents who wish to apply for these temporary positions can go to fema.gov/careers/job-openings or usajobs.gov to learn more and submit an application. These job postings will begin to close soon, so people who are interested in applying should do so as soon as possible. Applicants may be contacted via email, phone, or mail regarding the interview, hiring and selection process.

Those hired will join the team already in place, which is composed of Virginia Department of Emergency Management staff, Virginia Department of Health personnel and other local and federal workers, voluntary agencies, and community organizations. Through temporary local employees, FEMA gains valuable community insights, provides jobs, and allows Virginians to be on the front lines working to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the Commonwealth.

FEMA is an Equal Opportunity Employer and the federal hiring process is setup to be fair and transparent. The United States Government does not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, military service, or other non-merit factor.
