Your Work Matters

At nearly 200,000 people strong, the Navy civilian workforce plays a major role in the mission of the U.S. Navy. The civilian employees at NAVFAC SE are responsible for the infrastructure of Navy installations throughout the southeast United States. From streets and electrical grids to barracks and dry docks, the vital infrastructure NAVFAC creates, repairs, and maintains is the backbone of the entire U.S. Navy. At NAVFAC SE, you truly make a difference.

Job Security

Even in an unstable job market, the Department of the Navy will be an essential part of government operations. As long as the U.S. Navy exists, NAVFAC SE will need its workforce of skilled civilian professionals.

Career Advancement

With duty stations throughout the southeastern U.S. and dynamic mission priorities, professional experience and new opportunities are built into the NAVFAC SE culture. Whether it’s pioneering innovative new ways of doing things, expanding knowledge and skills through training, or tackling challenging new projects to meet the needs of the Navy, NAVFAC SE can provide you the path to career success.


As a NAVFAC SE employee, you will be eligible for tuition discounts of up to 50% at over two dozen colleges, including Penn State, the Florida Institute of Technology, and Georgetown University.  The tuition discount applies to certificate programs, undergraduate studies, and graduate studies, and many colleges will also extend the discounted rate to your immediate family.

Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance is vital to your health and well-being. NAVFAC SE has set work hours, flexible work schedules, telework, and other programs available so employees can create a routine that best lets them navigate their work and personal responsibilities – including when the unexpected happens. And with generous sick leave and annual leave, employees also have time for self-care and relaxation. NAVFAC SE strives to enable employees to be their absolute best at work and at home.

NAVFAC civilian employees enjoy free use of on-base military facilities such as fitness centers, beaches, picnic grounds, and recreational areas, can take advantage of pay-for-use facilities such as golf courses, and are eligible discounts on travel and theme park/local attraction tickets through the Morale, Welfare, and Recreation program.
