Due to expanding business we require a pool of dedicated and professional archaeologists to cover various fieldwork projects throughout the UK. Most of our current work is located in East Midlands and South West England   (BAJR note: this is NOT Insite Archaeological Services but a separate company. )

We are seeking expressions of interests from self-employed archaeologists as labour only sub contractors for our call out register.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrable experience of field archaeology in a commercial setting.
Candidates will be expected to provide their own basic site kit, PPE and valid CSCS card.
We will give priority to applicants who hold a full driving licence and CIfA membership at PCIfA level or above.

Proof of self employed status will be required as UTR and requisite Tax and National Insurance must be the responsibility of the self-employed archaeologist.

If applicants have not been self employed before, we can help to guide you through the process and lack of self employed status will not preclude an applicant from making an immediate start on site.
