We’re looking for an Experienced Senior Archaeologist to join our small team that provide technical advice and guidance on heritage issues to the Environment Agency.

The role will provide advice to project teams developing capital schemes and strategies, primarily to manage flood risk. This will include defining the scope and input to procurement and bid evaluation and quality assuring heritage and environmental design consultancy work.
Your advice and guidance will help manage cultural heritage risks to projects and deliver innovative cost-effective environmental outcomes to major civil engineering/infrastructure projects. You’ll be qualified to at least post-graduate standard (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline and be a Member of the Institute of Field Archaeologists and have a number of years of relevant experience.
