Looking to further your career in archaeology in a rural county with a rich and varied archaeological resource? Do you have a background in the Historic Environment and are eager to use and develop your GIS, database, and archival skills? An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Norfolk County Council’s Historic Environment Record Team.
 
One of the largest HERs in the country, the Norfolk HER provides a comprehensive record of all areas of known archaeological activity, sites, finds, cropmarks, earthworks, industrial remains, defensive structures, and historic buildings within the county. The team maintains strong links with community groups, academics, and professional archaeologists and also supports and works closely alongside other Norfolk County Council Services including the Strategy and Advice, Find Identification and Recording, and Air Photo Interpretation teams. The HER is also proud to maintain a large, unique paper and photographic archive which reflects a long history of successful, forward-thinking projects and services. This is an exciting time to join the HER team, as many elements of the archive are currently being digitised, transforming the way the HER offers its services.   
 
The successful candidate will join a growing team to help maintain, develop, and enhance the HER database, the Norfolk Heritage Explorer website, the Norfolk Air Photo Library, and the HER paper and photographic archives. They will be responsible for interacting with and processing enquiries from a wide variety of users, including professional archaeologists, academics, students, community groups, and individuals. They will also assist in incorporating new data into the electronic systems, participate in project-based enhancement work, and support promotional activities such as talks and workshops.
 
About you: Candidates will have a degree in archaeology or a related discipline and previous experience of working with database software, GIS programmes, and paper and photographic archives. Excellent writing and data entry skills, attention to detail, and the ability to work as part of a team are essential. Previous experience of Historic Environment Records and HBSMR database software would be an advantage but not essential.

Interested in beginning a career in archaeology? Are you seeking to build on an existing foundation of finds-based knowledge and computer skills? An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Norfolk County Council’s Historic Environment Record Team.
 
One of the largest HERs in the country, the Norfolk HER provides a comprehensive record of all areas of known archaeological activity, sites, finds, cropmarks, earthworks, industrial remains, defensive structures, and historic buildings within the county.

The Norfolk Find Identification and Recording Team has been liaising with metal-detectorists since the 1970’s, creating an unparalleled volume of data on portable objects which is unsurpassed in its breadth and depth of detail. Working in conjunction with the British Museum’s Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) and the HER, the team records over 15,000 archaeological objects every year and deposits the resulting data both with the HER and the PAS.
 
The successful candidate will join a growing team to take on the responsibility of integrating data produced by the Finds Identification and Recording Team and Portable Antiquities Scheme into the HER database. Working closely with the Identification and Recording team, they will ensure a smooth transfer of digital data from the PAS website and will oversee the integration of artefact drawings and digital photography into the HER archive and database systems. The candidate will also support the HER Officers by responding to non-commercial enquiries, entering data from other sources, and participating in enhancement projects.
 
About you: Candidates will have a degree in archaeology or a related discipline and previous experience of working with database software. Good writing skills, quick and efficient data entry skills with excellent attention to detail, and the ability to work as part of a team are essential. Previous experience of Historic Environment Records, HBSMR database software, and the PAS would be an advantage but not essential.
