HRO Notes: Management Assistant WAE

We just posted two more vacancy announcements in the Electronic Recruitment Application (ERA) Website. Both are Management Assistant positions. These positions play a vital role in our embassy as they fill in the blanks. If a Direct Hire OMS or other position is on leave, or there is a gap in coverage, then the Management Assistant fills in to make sure the assigned office can still function at peak efficiency. Assignments in a particular office may be as short as a day or as long as several months. Past Management Assistants have worked in RSO, Political, the Front Office, CLO, GSO, and HR.

As you look at the announcements at https://erajobs.state.gov/dos-era/sen/vacancysearch/searchVacancies.hms, you will notice that one announcement is for a full time position, the other is for “When Actually Employed,” (WAE). This position is similar to temp work, just for the embassy. The hours and assignments are more flexible.
