About On-Call Employment with ICF

Given the seasonal or project-specific nature of our environmental work, ICF often hires environmental professionals as “On-Call” employees. On-Call employees are scheduled for work hours as they become available (while we usually schedule work hours a few weeks ahead of time, last minute scheduling may also occur), and each on-call employee is free to accept or refuse the hours assigned to them in a given week. On-Call employees may work concurrent projects outside of their ICF assignment (as long as their outside work does not create a conflict of interest with the work they do for ICF).

  • Bachelor's degree in Archaeology, Anthropology, or related field
  • 2+ years of field experience in archaeological monitoring and survey
  • Ability to communicate and coordinate effectively with ICF senior staff and construction personnel

  • Background in prehistoric or historic period archaeology is required
  • Ability to conduct field visits at locations throughout Georgia and the Southeast
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Must have valid driver’s license and successfully pass a Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) check.
