The Position

Magnitude Surveys is seeking to promptly recruit an archaeological geophysicist to help the company meet increasing workloads. Magnitude Surveys is seeking a driven, self-motivated individual who is looking to expand their technical skills and creative abilities in an expanding company. The position will entail balanced office-based and field-based responsibilities. These could include:

  • Supervision of small tams during field survey.
  • Supervision of community survey.
  • Data analysis, interpretation and report writing.
  • Equipment maintenance.


The Company and the Candidate

Magnitude Surveys Ltd is a social enterprise and an independent provider of archaeological geophysics to the commercial, research and public outreach sectors.

We specialise in tailoring geophysical surveys to meet both the client and project’s specific requirements. To meet these requirements, we design and manufacture our own cutting-edge geophysical systems and software in house.

The ideal candidate would possess the following:

  • Full clean driving licence including experience driving off road
  • The ability to work as part of a close-knit team
  • Degree in archaeological near surface geophysics or similar
  • At least one year of commercial geophysical experience

Although the above qualifications are preferred, we encourage anyone with a keen interest in archaeological geophysics to apply.



Travel to site, accommodation and subsistence is paid for while away from the office. Full PPE will be provided, including Gore-Tex or equivalent waterproofs and safety boots.

Magnitude Surveys encourages and supports its staff’s professional development by funding conference attendance and presentation, as well as training workshops. CIfA membership and a current CSCS card are desirable, but not essential. Magnitude Surveys will support the successful candidate in obtaining both CIfA membership and a CSCS card if they do not have one.

The successful candidate will be automatically enrolled into the NEST workplace pension scheme with matched employer contributions of up to 6%. Magnitude Surveys offers 28 days holiday including bank holidays, in addition to any company shutdown days.


Application Process

The closing date for application is May 31st; however, early application is advised as the post may be filled before closing date. Applicants should submit a covering letter and CV through our website. Interviews will be held in our Bradford office.
