We are looking to recruit a Project Officer, to be based at our Reading office, with a salary of £22,300 to £25,800 (depending on experience). The role is centred on carrying out a wide range of fieldwork projects to specification (evaluations, watching briefs and excavations in both urban and rural settings) and writing reports on the results.
A degree in archaeology (or related subject), a proven track record in writing reports, and a thorough knowledge of British archaeology are essential, as is a good understanding of the demands of the construction industry. Practical skills will include the range of techniques and methods used in commercial archaeology, including excavation, recording, sampling, on-site interpretation and survey. The successful candidate will also have experience in running projects to time and to budget, supervising teams and liaising with clients and county archaeological officers.
A current driving licence is essential. A keen attitude and enthusiastic, flexible approach is preferred, as is a valid CSCS card and membership of the CIfA. Experience in geophysical survey techniques would also be advantageous, though full training will be given. Additional advantages include driving bonus, sick pay, 20 days holiday p.a., company pension scheme, and allowance for stay away work.
The successful candidate can be offered an immediate start, with a permanent position available following 3 month probationary period.
