Job Description

Aviation Consulting Manager

ICF Aviation:

Aviation is a vibrant, dynamic industry that generates economic growth, supports employment, facilitates international trade and tourism and brings people together. But aviation is also facing numerous, complex issues. Join ICF’s Aviation practice as we help clients navigate industry challenges, be it rebuilding tourism and connectivity after Covid, advising policy makers on how to facilitate industry decarbonisation, delivering digital modernisation solutions or maximising returns on investment.

ICFs aviation practice is one of the world's largest specialist aviation consulting teams. Aviation is, by its nature, a global industry, and from our offices in the UK, US, India and Spain, we work together as a single global team to offer a truly global solution to our clients. As a member of our consulting team you will have the opportunity to work on projects across all regions and service lines, including opportunities for travel.
