Ship Repair Facility Yokosuka and Detachment Sasebo are responsible for maintaining and repairing the 22 Forward Deployed Naval Forces (FDNF) ships serving in U.S. SEVENTH Fleet and the ships deployed to SEVENTH Fleet AOR from stateside.
As a federal employee at SRF-JRMC Det Sasebo, you’ll help operate a medium-sized, full-service regional maintenance center (RMC) that contracts ship maintenance repair work to the private sector in support of depot level maintenance availabilities and provides organic continuous maintenance (CM), emergent/voyage repairs (VR), and Fleet Technical Assistance (FTA).
The U.S. civil service (USCS) workforce is critical to the daily operations of SRF-JRMC, providing engineering, technical, supervisory, advisory, managerial, financial, security and other services that cannot be delegated to foreign nationals, which comprises the bulk of the SRF workforce. Additionally, USCS and military personnel provide most FTA support.
You’ll find working at an FDNF maintenance activity to be quite challenging, yet most satisfying. The talented, multinational work force in Japan is unique and helps make your Japan tour broader professionally and personally rewarding. The resulting team effort has earned SRF-JRMC an enviable reputation. Working at PSNS&IMF Det, you’ll also reap many benefits working in this unique environment. Globalize your Career!
