Three new professional work placements are available, each for twelve months, under the Historic England specialist work based training programme. The placement holders will be employed by the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) and seconded to Historic England for the duration.

Training placement in Aerial investigation and mapping                     based in Swindon
Training placement in Zooarchaeology                                                  based in Portsmouth

The placements start in late October/early November 2017, Salary £18,000 p.a.

These placements provide a rare and exciting opportunity to receive structured work based training in specialist areas of historic environment practice, and to be supervised and trained by highly qualified experts. Placements on this programme have been established to address particular areas of skills shortage in the historic environment sector, so career prospects for trainees are excellent. A placement on this programme is for you if you have some experience within the sector through study, work experience or both, but have not had the formal opportunity to develop your skills to a professional standard.
