We are looking to further expand our teams in the North (at Bradford) and possibly in the Midlands (at Upton upon Severn) and invite candidates with varying levels of experience to join this multi-disciplined Group. In addition to Archaeological and Engineering Geophysics, SUMO also specialises in Utility Detection, Topographic Surveys, Measured Building Surveys, Laser Scanning and Aerial Surveys (in conjunction with Aerial Cam).

We are looking for experienced operators and trainees
