Project Manager
Do you have what it takes to be a Project Manager with Headland? Based in the South & East office in Wrest Park, Silsoe, this is a great opportunity to join a progressive and growing company that balances exciting archaeological projects with a business-like approach to project management, clients and careers.
The position will involve preparation of tenders and the running of  both field and office-based projects. You will be expected to use your archaeological experience to advise clients and to support colleagues as projects progress. The sort of person we’d like to employ would need:

  • a desire to learn, develop and lead, underpinned by a good knowledge of British Archaeology and UK planning legislation;
  • a proven track record in commercial archaeology;
  • the ability to manage and develop field and specialist teams, and taking projects through to publication;
  • an appetite for working closely with clients
The team you will join - The team at Silsoe comprises 25 core staff with many presently working on the massive A14 Improvement Scheme, Cambridgeshire (along with 70+ fixed-term staff). We are also working on the Thames Tideway Tunnel project in London, and there will be opportunities for involvement in these and a whole raft of other projects which are currently in the pipeline.  The company is passionate about archaeology and very focused on training, so not only can you expect to receive training but our managers are encouraged to get involved with the development of junior staff. This year will see the appointment of a full-time training officer to facilitate this process. 

It is not all about work - The drive up the formal drive past Wrest Park country house provides a great start to the morning. Parking is not a problem and the numerous walks, cafes and the grounds themselves provide a fantastic environment in which to work

Location - Silsoe itself is well situated and a short commute from towns like Bedford, Luton, Hitchin, Letchworth, Cambridge and Milton Keynes. The nearest stations are Flitwick and Arlesey which will get you into Central London in 45 mins or onto the East Coast Rail line.
There are many other benefits to working with Headland such as support in joining CIfA and paying membership dues, an annual bonus scheme and a good company pension plan - see
Applicants must hold a clean driving licence and membership of the CIfA is preferred.

Informal inquiries concerning the role can be made to Michael Tierney, Regional Manager, South & East – 01525 861 578.
