ORLANDO, Fla. — As Florida recovers from Hurricane Ian more than a month later, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is looking to hire hundreds of people to help out.
There are more than 300 open positions available statewide, including in Orlando and Kissimmee.
The agency needs people with experience in customer service, logistics, environmental protection, engineering, emergency management and other areas.
Hires would sign on for a four-month appointment that could be extended based on operational needs.
FEMA local-hire employees are eligible for benefits, including health insurance for individual or family coverage, flexible spending accounts, holiday pay and other benefits.
According to a news release, applicants must be U.S. citizens, 18 years of age or older, and possess a high school diploma or GED.
Applicants will be required to pass a background investigation that includes finger-printing and credit checks, be able to furnish their own transportation to and from work, and live within 50 miles of the employing office.
