Based in Northampton

We are looking for motivated and capable individuals to join our Project Management team at Northampton.  All applicants will be considered, from experienced Project Managers looking to develop their careers to candidates who want to move into Project Management for the first time.

As one of the largest independent archaeological practices in the UK, MOLA offers continued career progression within the organisation, and the opportunity to expand and develop personal and professional skills into all aspects of archaeological practice, within a dynamic and interesting environment. In the longer term there are career opportunities to move into senior management roles within the organisation, contributing to the strategic direction of the business.  Flexibility and innovation are key factors in the success of any organisation, and you will be encouraged to develop your own solutions and approaches to your projects, with the independence to manage your own time and priorities.

We have a diverse and interesting portfolio of exciting projects throughout the UK and are growing the business and client base.  You will have the opportunity to join a close-knit team with the opportunity to contribute to the continued growth of the business.

The roles

The successful candidates will be expected to tender for and procure new business at a level appropriate to the level of the appointment.  They will manage a range of archaeological fieldwork and post-excavation projects simultaneously whilst ensuring delivery within set timescales and budgets.  Maintaining quality standards and safe working practices are essential. 

Professional experience

Ideally candidates would have demonstrable experience of successfully tendering for and managing projects from initiation to completion.  However, there is also the opportunity for the right candidates with the ambition to move their career forward as part of MOLA’s commitment to career development, for which training and mentoring would be provided. 

Membership of CIfA at Associate or Member grade or eligibility and willingness to apply is required.  MOLA will pay for application and membership fees.  A full clean driving licence is essential as regular travel will be required.

Personal qualities

Candidates should have excellent communication skills, the ability to manage their own workload and prioritise accordingly.  A suitable level of experience in archaeological team management and project delivery is expected according to roles.  The successful candidates will be able to motivate, empower and inspire project teams and be able to build productive and professional relationships with all our partners across the sector including clients, consultants, other contractors and curators.  Good problem solving skills and the ability to work as part of multi-disciplinary teams are essential.
