Immediate start available

The role
Owing to a sustained increase in project workload, we are seeking to expand our fieldwork support team in London. This position is open to all but may appeal to people with relatively little experience of commercial archaeology. The role is multi-skilled and will incorporate aspects of van driving, processing and field archaeology.

We are seeking enthusiastic individuals with a range of experience and skills, a valid driving license and preferably CSCS accreditation. The successful candidate will drive the van and manage the schedule, and will also manage the tools store so as to ensure we provide all our sites with the correct equipment. The role also includes finds and environmental processing. Appropriate training will be provided.
When there is insufficient work available, the candidate will be deployed into the field where experience gained regarding finds identification, processing, handling, packaging and retention policies will strengthen finds related processes on site.

Employee Benefits
We are able to offer a range of benefits to our employees including:

  • Proficiency based pay progression
  • 30 days annual leave (including bank holidays) rising based on completed service
  • Company pension scheme
  • Free health care cash plan (including dependent children)
