Wardell Armstrong LLP is a successful multi-disciplinary environmental consultancy with 12 offices throughout the UK employing nearly 500 staff. We have been providing expert archaeological and heritage services for over 25 years, during which time we have demonstrated our ability to provide effective and commercially aware advice to a wide range of clients throughout the UK.

The Wardell Armstrong Archaeology & Heritage team has provided expertise and professional services for over 25 years, supporting the team to be leaders in the field, with an incredibly diverse suite of specialisms on offer, including desk-based consultancy, building recording, non-intrusive works such as geophysical survey and landscape assessment, the full range of archaeological fieldwork services and a comprehensive and dedicated specialist post-excavation team.
Our team is based across 4 of Wardell Armstrong’s offices Bolton, Birmingham, Carlisle and Stoke. Our post-ex hub in Carlisle is home to our purpose-built facility, which provide finds analysis, palaeoenvironmental processing and analysis, post-excavation analysis, publication and outreach.
Our Archaeology team is highly successful and we are growing! This means we need to expand our team, and we are interested in hearing from passionate and experienced archaeologists who can become part of this growth and development.  

Field Archaeologists
We require field archaeologists – specialists in their field, who are interested in working both close to their base, and further afield.
We offer competitive salary, good subsistence rates and paid for single occupancy accommodation for away work.
At junior grades, applicants should ideally have at least three month’s commercial experience.
Why choose Wardell Armstrong:

Wardell Armstrong LLP offers a company pension scheme and sickness benefits as well as paid membership of CIfA, and provides accommodation, transport and a generous subsistence allowance when working away from home.
Wardell Armstrong is a people-focussed company, large enough to have strength in depth but also small enough to be sure of giving our clients close personal attention. Our Archaeology and Heritage team is passionate and ambitious. We can offer excellent experience, project ownership and a genuine chance to thrive.
Our ideal candidates will have vision, flair and expertise, at the appropriate level, in the delivery of a wide range of projects. They will be a strong communicator, providing excellent service. They will also be inspired by a diverse range of archaeological projects and enjoy sharing their skills and experience with the wider team.

A successful candidate will require:
•    Knowledge of British archaeology.
•    Knowledge and understanding of post-excavation procedures and practices.
•    A degree in archaeology or a related discipline.
•    A full clean driving licence.
•    Eligibility to work in the UK.
