MHI Data Manager - Birmingham

PAY:  from £25,000 for 37.5 hours per week
LOCATION: Birmingham
START DATE: November – immediate start date 
ACCOMMODATION: Not provided, but a £2500 allowance will be offered to those who relocate to Birmingham.

We are recruiting a Data Manager to oversee the metric survey work at a large cemetery excavation in Birmingham and potentially other sites on a large infrastructure scheme. The role assumes overall responsibility for the spatial record, the survey team, skills, processes and equipment required to produce a high-quality product. The candidate must be a competent surveyor with at least 3 years’ experience using a total station, robotic total station and GPS Units and have a sound understanding of site control. The post-holder will also be fully proficient in post-survey processing of archaeological survey data. Experience of urban archaeological survey is essential.

Although the majority of daily site survey work will be undertaken by the survey supervisors, you will manage the team confidently and be able to provide support as needed, with a particular focus on resolving and issues with the data and/or equipment.

While primarily focused on the spatial record, the role will also cover other data and database management tasks for the project. This will involve overseeing both field and office based teams who will gather, process, check, store and disseminate archaeological information in a variety of paper and digital formats, including photographic records. The post holder will need to undertake some of these tasks personally and will serve as data steward for the information under their control. Experience of paperless archaeological recording is desired but not essential.

Preference will be given to applicants who already hold AQP/PQP CSCS cards. Please note CRO cards are not accepted on the scheme.  We can arrange and pay for a test if necessary and provide information about how to upgrade CRO cards to AQP/PQP. Offers of employment will be conditional on acquiring the right card. Please note that the test stations are only available in the UK.

Employee Benefits:

  • 28 days annual leave (including bank holidays) pro rata
  • Company pension scheme
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Access to promotion / transfer opportunities within MOLA and Headland
  • Relocation allowance of £2500 (payable over 3 months) if relocating to Birmingham from outside of Birmingham (eligibility rules apply)

There may be opportunities to transfer to work on other projects within MOLA and Headland. These will only be available subject to successful completion of the probationary period.
