Due to an increased workload across multiple sites in Essex, we are seeking expressions of interests from full self-employed archaeologists in the first instance.
The ideal candidates 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 those who hold a full driving licence.

Self-employed applicants should provide all-inclusive day-rates, contractual arrangements and provide evidence of their self-employed status.
They will be responsible for their own Tax and National Insurance requirements.

Accommodation is not provided and must be arranged by the Self Employed Archaeologist.
Please email enquiries to:

With the subject ‘Self Employed Archaeologist’, attaching a full CV, covering letter, and the names and full contact details of two referees.
