PCAS Archaeology Ltd requires up to three Reports Officers to reduce its current post-excavation backlog.
These positions are offered at between £26,520.00 and £29,120.00 per annum, depending on experience/ability.
Contract periods will initially be for one year, subject to a satisfactory two-month probationary period. Permanent contracts will be offered to suitable employees at the end of the first year. The normal working week is 40 hours. Candidates will ideally have a clean current UK driving licence, although this is not essential for the roles offered.
Reports Officers will be tasked to prepare a range of archaeological reports, from small scale evaluations to larger excavation projects. Candidates must demonstrate an ability to understand and interpret stratigraphy, and present archaeology in a modern, intelligent format - reports that work for archaeologists, planners, and developers. An understanding of QGIS would be an advantage, although software training will be offered.
Candidates should have a good general knowledge of British archaeology, and ideally an educational background to degree or similar level. We seek flexible candidates with initiative, self-reliance, a passion for archaeology, and an ability to represent the company when working with our clients.
The role will be based at our Saxilby office although home working would be considered.
