Northern Archaeological Associates is the leading independent heritage and archaeology company in the north of England and has a broad range of current excavation, survey, geomatic, historic environment, and community projects.
NAA is seeking suitably qualified enthusiastic Team Managers to coordinate a range of fieldwork projects in North East of England, Yorkshire and Cumbria. We welcome applications from experienced and motivated field archaeologists whose interest and expertise lies in delivering the highest standards of archaeological work to meet the needs of clients and archaeological curators. The successful applicants will be flexible, capable of maintaining a busy workload, and able to work within our multi-disciplinary teams.
The Team Manager will report to, and work closely with, NAA’s Program Managers in the design, management, and timely delivery of all types of archaeological fieldwork. The post holder will be expected to monitor progress of specific tasks and report back to the Program Managers, ensuring project milestones are realistically maintained and being delivered on.
The Team Manager will take oversight of the achievement of a range of concurrent projects led by Project Officers and Project Supervisors, and working with the Program Manager, will identify the best resources needed to deliver these projects to time, cost and quality. The post holder will help prepare detailed project plans and milestones that will deliver the requirements of the project as agreed with the client. Post holder responsibilities will involve preparation of project documentation, mobilisation and oversight of fieldwork, health and safety, post-excavation assessment/analysis reporting, and managing others acting under their direction.
The Team Manager will have demonstrable skills and experience in managing archaeological field projects of different types and complexity. Knowledge of project management procedures, health and safety in the workplace, and of relevant legislation, policy and best practice will be required. The post holder will need to be an effective communicator in managing, monitoring, mentoring and developing staff under their direction. The Team Manager will liaise and build strong relationships with clients, local authority archaeologists, and other stakeholders.
The Team Manager will contribute to the continual improvement of the company’s Integrated Management System (ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 14001: 2015, ISO 45001: 2018), and will assist in decisions to enhance the company performance, profitability and growth.

The advertised post will be based at the NAA offices in Barnard Castle (though currently working remotely due to Covd-19 restrictions) and is for an initial 12-month appointment based on a 37.5-hour working week. Starting salary will be commensurate with the expertise and experience of the successful candidate and payment will be made monthly in arrears.
