About On-Call Employment with ICF International

Given the seasonal or project-specific nature of our environmental work, ICF often hires environmental professionals as “On-Call” employees.

On-Call employees may work concurrent projects outside of their ICF assignment (granted their non-ICF work does not create a conflict of interest with the work conducted for ICF).
