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.
 
Successful candidates for Archaeologist positions will benefit from our comprehensive ‘Archaeologist to Assistant Supervisor’ training programme which provides a clear path for career development. The scheme includes organised training events in addition to mentoring by more senior staff and provides a structured framework for Archaeologists to build on and record their learning experiences. These will include skills such as training and mentoring more junior staff, machine watching, survey, matrix generation and undertaking watching briefs. When the required levels of competency are achieved the scheme allows Archaeologists to advance to Assistant Supervisor level without the need to wait for the company to formally recruit at that grade.
 
Candidates who have reached a general level of competency consistent with what Oxford Archaeology expects from an Assistant Supervisor and are recruited at that level will also be able to benefit from aspects of the programme, to reinforce and enhance their existing skills.
 
OA East
OA East continues to have a busy programme until the end of the year and we are looking for experienced staff to join our field teams at all levels. We have field projects underway on rural sites in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Northamptonshire and we are particularly interested in candidates based in these areas. We also have away deployments in Lincolnshire and candidates based nearby or wishing to be deployed there with accommodation should also consider applying.
 
OA South
OA South has a busy programme for the coming months including excavations on a long-running scheme in Dorset which is revealing interesting archaeology in a county renowned for its prehistoric past.  We also have numerous other sites, both large and small situated both in our Oxfordshire heartland and further afield in Gloucestershire, East Sussex, Essex, Buckinghamshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
 
OA operate a policy of single rooms for all away-based staff.
