Oxford Archaeology is one of the largest independent archaeological practices in Europe. Our size and reputation ensures that we work on the most exciting and varied range of projects, and can offer real opportunities for long term employment and career development.
 
OA East
OA East has a busy programme into the Autumn and we are looking for experienced staff to join our field teams at all levels. We have field projects underway on rural sites across the East of England and we are particularly interested in candidates based in Cambridgeshire and Essex where we are currently excavating neolithic, Iron Age and Roman period remains, with work on rural Saxon settlement also due to start shortly. We also have some 'away' deployments in both Norfolk and Suffolk and candidates based in those areas or wishing to be deployed there with accommodation should also consider applying.
 
OA South
OA South has a full and exciting work programme for the coming months with a range of both rural and urban sites covering a variety of different time periods. We have local projects in and around Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties, and for those who like to see different parts of the country we also have opportunities in Kent, Dorset, Leicestershire and Gloucestershire amongst others. Highlights include Iron Age and Roman settlements and landscapes, a city-centre excavation of complex stratiphied medieval deposits, prehistoric landscapes, and possibly some burials.
 
OA North
OA North has an exciting programme of work in the North West and Midlands, with sites that range from a large prehistoric enclosure with associated ritual and/or settlement activity to excavation of some of the workers' housing reported on by Engels in his damning late 19th century report on living conditions for factory workers.
 
We operate a policy of single rooms for all away-based staff.
