Application ReF: PO-SV-0717

Due to an upsurge in demand we are looking to expand our excavation teams with opportunities at all levels. This is a great opportunity to join a progressive and growing company engaged with a constant stream of exciting archaeological projects. As a completely independent commercial company there is plenty of scope to utilise existing skills, discover new ones and develop strengths you perhaps didn’t realise you even had. You will encounter numerous opportunities for personal development and promotion. Applicants at all levels should have a flexible approach to deployment and although you will be based in Leeds you should expect to periodically work away from the office.
 
Key skills requirements – Project Officer
Good Project Officers are one of the linch-pins of our business; if you’re up for the challenge, we’d like to get you on-board. You will be expected to undertake a variety of archaeological investigations including field-based surveys, evaluations and excavations as well as office-based research, analysis and reporting up to publication level. The ideal candidates should be able to demonstrate both experience and enthusiasm and a willingness to participate in company initiatives.
The following criteria are essential:

  • Degree level education in a relevant subject or substantial practical experience
  • Driving licence and willingness to drive company vehicles
  • Substantial archaeological field work experience on sites of various periods and types
  • Experience of supervising and managing medium to large sized teams
  • Experience and understanding of UK commercial archaeology
  • Ability to carry out manual work in an outdoor environment in all weather
  • Good organisational skills
  • Ability to use own initiative
  • Use of Microsoft Office packages

Applicants must hold a clean driving licence and be eligible to work unrestricted in the United Kingdom. Membership of the CIfA is preferred but is not essential.
 
 
 
The team you will join
The North Office in Leeds was opened in 2015 and is the latest addition to the Headland rosta. Currently we have a full time core of 10 staff, including the specialist geophysics teams, based in a Grade 2 listed Victorian School in Beeston, about 1 mile from Leeds city centre, although we are likely to move to larger premises in the near future.
 
Its not all about work
Although Leeds is a large conurbation, with great road, rail and air connections, it is also within easy distance of great walking country. Skipton (Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales) is about an hour by car or train and the moors above Haworth (Bronte Country) or Ilkley less than that. Leeds is also a large vibrant city with a large student population and variety of cultural, sporting and leisure activities close at hand.  With a large student population there is a large stock of rented accommodation in Leeds to suit all budgets. Bradford also has a large student population and prices (both for renting or buying) tend to be cheaper here than Leeds.
 
Informal inquiries concerning the roles can be made to Alistair Webb, Regional Manager, North – 0113 3876430. Send CV and covering letter by email quoting reference number PO-SV-0717 to jobs@headlandarchaeology.com. Applications must include the contact details of at least two referees.
