Fieldwork Project Officer
Phoenix Consulting Archaeology Ltd
£24,000 to £27,000 (depending on experience)
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 project officer (fieldwork) 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 with regard to archaeological fieldwork.
The successful candidate should have a good knowledge of British Archaeology and an understanding of UK planning relating to heritage. They should have demonstrable management skills in relationship to 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 desirable. The successful candidate should possess a valid CSCS card or Quarry Safety Passport.
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 Bedfordshire 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.
Early November at our offices in Bedford.
