From the iconic East Coast seaside and the rich prehistoric landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, to medieval Hull, and industrial Goole.

Explore this landscape alongside Hull, a city of ambition, a city that sparked the English Civil War, with rich surviving medieval remains. As the Principal Archaeologist you will provide development management advice to two local authorities and lead the development of the Humber HER and its team. You will oversee the Hull Urban Archaeological Database project, funded by Historic England. As the Principal Archaeologist for the Humber Archaeology Partnership, a partnership between Hull City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council you will lead the team, guide development of the HER and continue to promote outreach and education to our residents.

You will have experience of providing development management advice for complex and significant applications, providing an effective and efficient curatorial service and have experience of attracting funding for projects and developing HERs. You will report directly to the Head of Planning alongside a number of other planning and development teams.
