About ICF

One of ICF’s many offices around the world is Gillette - located in the heart of Wyoming’s energy producing Powder River Basin. The Gillette office is a small, biology-driven office composed of primarily wildlife biologists. The majority of their work is centered around the mining, oil and gas, and renewable energy industries in the Rocky Mountain Region. Gillette is an industrial town of approximately 35,000 people, and within driving distance of the famous Black Hills region, Devil’s Tower, and Big Horn Mountains. Nearest cities include Rapid City, SD, Billings, MT, and Casper, WY.

Hourly: $20 - $25 an hour

Season/On-Call Position: Expected to work up to 50 hours per week, guaranteed work!

Job Description

As a Vegetation/Wetland Technician, you will be responsible for floristic surveys, vegetation community mapping, noxious weed surveys, rare plant surveys, wetland delineations, and data entry. Field work is often performed on foot in rugged often hilly rocky terrain and the ability to hike long distances is required. The field work will require long and often irregular hours (potentially nights, early mornings, and some weekends) in potentially adverse weather conditions. Field work will be conducted in remote areas with the potential for over-night/extended travel. Technicians must be able to confidently identify western flora plant species including grasses, grass-likes, shrubs, forbs, trees, and wetland plant species. Technicians must have excellent navigational skills with GPS as well as maps and compass and be able to operate four-wheel drive trucks. Technicians will be required to work independently in the field, so dedication, resourcefulness, and accountability are essential skills for the position. While field work will be conducted independently, all work will be carried out as part of larger team effort and excellent communication skills and an ability to cooperate in a team are equally important qualities.

About On-Call (Seasonal) Employment with ICF

Given the seasonal or project-specific nature of our environmental work, ICF often hires environmental professionals as “On-Call” or seasonal employees. On-call employees are scheduled for work hours as they become available and suitable weather conditions permit (work is usually scheduled a few weeks ahead of time), and each on-call employee is free to accept or refuse the hours assigned to them in a given week. On-Call employees are paid on an hourly basis and will be eligible for overtime pay per federal and state regulations. On-call employees may work concurrent projects outside of their ICF assignment (along as their outside work does not create a conflict of interest with the work they do for ICF). Expected field work responsibilities to include 40-50+ hours per week from May through late June with the possibility of extension depending on potential projects. Work would be based out of the Gillette office but could require travel throughout the Rocky Mountain states. Travel is required for this position.

  • Ability to hike long distances (up to 12 miles per day), withstand cold/hot and windy conditions for long periods, and be able to lift heavy items (more than 30 lbs.) if needed for field safety.
