School Research Recruiter, Multiple US Regions (REMOTE)

ICF’s Survey Research Team is growing, and we are hiring multiple Research Recruiters across the country to support efforts in recruiting schools, school districts, communities, states, and national-level organizations to participate in research and evaluation studies on a variety of public health topics.

If you have a working knowledge of schools and can be persuasive and effective in communicating the value of public health via phone interactions, we love that combination and want to hear from you!

School Research Recruiters at ICF need to be articulate and demonstrate strong verbal and written communication skills, well-developed active listening skills, and the ability to be both succinct and persuasive in written and oral communication.  As the School Research Recruiter, you will need to be adept at engaging others in conversation and interpreting possible objections based on verbal and non-verbal cues.  This role requires resiliency, and the ability to present effective responses/alternatives in overcoming respondents’ resistance to participation. 

These roles are full-time, remote based (work-from-home) from August 2022 through December 2022. Some roles may extend to mid-May 2023.  Successful candidates will be required to attend a multi-day training in Rockville, MD in August 2022 (dates TBD).

What you will be doing:

  • Establish rapport with states, school districts, communities, and/or schools that have been randomly selected to participate in community, state, or national studies.

  • Recruit schools, school districts, communities, states, and national-level organizations to participate in research studies on a variety of public health topics. Perform respondent identification in accordance with study protocol.

  • Obtain clearances and agreements to participate, carefully selecting appropriate respondents, and scheduling data collection activities.

  • Actively work to fill gaps in scheduling assignments and monitor logistics for assigned field data collection staff.

  • Use a computer to complete an online data collection management application for each study and complete study assignments and tasks using Microsoft Office products, such as Word and Excel.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in behavioral or social sciences, public health, communications/marketing, or education field.

  • At least 2 years of relevant work experience in the field of education, research, and/or evaluation

  • Home WiFi access required

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office software (i.e., Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) is essential in this fast-paced, client-oriented environment.

  • Familiarity with school environments is ideal.

  • Prior experience recruiting participants to participate in research studies preferred. Recruitment, college admissions, educational administration, teaching, field data collection, fund raising, public relations, direct sales, and health education/promotion would be ideal.

  • Master's degree preferred.

Professional Skills:

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, well-developed active listening skills, and the ability to be both succinct and persuasive in written and oral communication.

  • Experience engaging others in conversation and interpreting possible objections based on verbal and non-verbal cues.

  • Ability to think on one’s feet to analyze a situation, identify potential problems, and recommend solutions.

  • Detail oriented with well-developed ability to document assignment outcomes.

  • Demonstrated level of professionalism in providing task support, including ability to exercise good judgment, discretion, tact, and diplomacy required.

  • Sound business ethics, including the protection of proprietary and confidential information required.
