When disaster strikes around the world, either natural or man-made, USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), is often the U.S Governments first responder. As a Deployable Communications Officer for BHA, you would:
Candidates must be a U.S citizen, possess and maintain valid passport, driver’s license (good driving record) and must possess active secret clearance. He/she must be in excellent health as field conditions involve exposure to extreme heat/cold and long hours often located in war torn areas. Excellent verbal and written skills are a must. A self-starter, the candidate must be able to work in a team environment and operate as the sole Communication Officer during deployments.
Candidates must have technical training, certification(s), or degree (bachelor’s preferred) and 3 years (10 preferred) of experience (below). Significant Public Safety or Military experience highly preferred .
Must be willing to work physically in Washington DC and overseas for up to 45 day deployments.
The Deployable Communications Team is looking for a go-getter who can manage several projects at one time, think outside the box and remain cool under pressure. Our work is unique and requires someone with an exceptional personality that is comfortable in new and different environments and gets along well with others. The humanitarian world works primarily in the English language but some proficiency in other languages such as Spanish, Arabic and French go a long way. Previous experience with the United Nations, USAID, USAR Operations or other non-Government agencies such as American Red Cross or Save the Children would be valuable, as would experience as an IT Service Desk technician.
