Field Officer
Phoenix Consulting Archaeology Ltd
£26,500 to £30,000 (plus bonuses)

Our Company
Phoenix Consulting Archaeology Ltd are an established practice now in their 21st year of operation.  We work 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.

The Position
We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Field Officer, principally to manage on-site 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 an excellent knowledge of British Archaeology and a background in commercial archaeological fieldwork.  They should have demonstrable management skills in running both small and medium-sized fieldwork projects. This should be in excess of twelve months in a similar position.

It would be desirable if they also have experience of writing up their fieldwork projects, a level of project management and a good understanding of current health and safety legislation.  CIfA membership at Member grade, or potential to obtain such, is desirable. The successful candidate should possess, or be willing to obtain a Quarry Safety Passport/CSCS card (which will be paid for by the Company).

It is likely other duties would be required, including working alongside our post-excavation team to facilitate in the preparation of post-excavation reports, and assisting the senior management team in general consultancy duties.

Employee Benefits
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 and other subscription fees.

The post would be based at our Bedford office, but would 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 needed.
