JOB #R1903826

Economics Director

The Regulatory, Policy and Economics business at ICF supports primarily public-sector clients in the full range of economic and policy activities. We estimate costs and benefits, as well as the economic impact of regulations, policies, and programs. We also evaluate program effectiveness. We work with virtually all federal agencies; key clients include the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Transportation, Department of Labor, the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Interior, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission as well as other federal, state and local agencies, and select non-profit and private-sector clients.

Your day-to-day role:

As a Director on the Economics team, you will interact with Federal and State government economists and other regulatory program staff.  In a typical day, you will manage work on short- and long-term projects focused on policies and regulations affecting various areas including the environment, energy, transportation, homeland security, immigration, and others.  For these projects, you will analyze the costs, benefits and economic impacts of policies and regulations.  Your work products will include written reports, memoranda, spreadsheet models, and PowerPoint presentations.  A portion of your work products will be published for public comment in the Federal Register.  The bulk of your work will be on domestic regulatory issues.  So, if you have a background and interest primarily in international issues, then this job is probably not the right fit for you.

Your work on the Economics team also will involve mentoring, coaching, and supervising junior staff.  This means you will meet with your project team staff on a regular basis to monitor workflow and workload, provide guidance, and ensure quality work products. 

Some of your time over the course of a year will be spent on contributing to business development efforts, presenting at conferences, or conducting other outreach to prospective clients.

What we are looking for:

We would like to review your resume if you have at minimum a Master’s degree in economics and over 5 years of experience, preferably in consulting or a government role. We also are looking for someone who has mentored or supervised other staff. We need a candidate who has taken a leadership role on projects and is able to manage work both from the technical and financial perspectives. We also would look favorably on candidates that have experience in business development. 

We can only consider US citizens for this role.

Other intangibles we are looking for:

We need someone who has strong written, verbal, and interpersonal skills, and who works well on teams.  You need to be flexible and able to work in a fast-paced environment.  We hire problem-solvers with strong analytical skills that have a high level of attention to detail.  Because we are in client services, we need someone who is professional and oriented towards customer service.
