Phoenix Consulting Archaeology Ltd are an established practice now in their 20th year of operation. We operate throughout the UK providing advice and services to the minerals and construction industry. We are a small, but successful company with an excellent and established client base.
We currently have an exciting opportunity for a fieldwork project officer, principally to manage small-scale excavations and facilitate other fieldwork projects, supported by the senior management team. We are looking for a motivated and hard-working individual who has an interest in developing their current skill-base.
The successful candidate should have a good knowledge of British Archaeology and a background in commercial archaeological fieldwork. A degree in Archaeology or similar subject would be desirable. You should have demonstrable skills in running small- and medium-sized fieldwork projects including excavations, watching briefs and evaluations. Some experience in project management and writing up fieldwork would also be desirable. CIfA membership, or potential to obtain membership, is also necessary. The successful candidate should possess a valid CSCS card or Quarry Safety Passport, or be willing to work with us in obtaining the same.
It is likely other duties would be required, including occasionally working alongside our post-excavation manager to facilitate in the preparation of site reports, and assisting the senior management team in general consultancy duties.
We provide a competitive package including a good base salary, pension contributions and opportunity for bonuses. 28 days holiday and concessionary days at Christmas. We also pay full CIFA subscription fees.
The post would be based at our central Bedford office, but likely include periods of site-based location. Where applicable, accommodation and expenses will be covered by the company. Travel to a variety of sites would be required (for which a mileage allowance is paid) and therefore a current driving licence is required.
