Points of contact for archaeological education, training and jobs
IfA have developed two factsheets which are regularly updated, which may be of use to those considering or seeking employment in archaeology.
- Becoming a Professional is a general guide to beginning a career in archaeology.
- Education, Training and Jobs gives a list of useful points of contact when looking for a job.
The Council for British Archaeology (CBA) maintains a directory of UK archaeological employers and links to the Training Online Resource Centre for Archaeology, and also facilitates the Young Archaeologists Club. The Education section of the CBA website also has a great deal of useful information about training and working in archaeology.
Creative and Cultural Skills have launched the Creative Choices website, which provides tools, knowledge and networks to support the development of every individual and business in the creative industries and cultural sector. Information about careers in the Historic Environment are available under ‘Cultural Heritage’.
The JIS is a weekly jobs bulletin which carries advertisements placed exclusively by employers and all archaeological, heritage and research opportunities appearing in the national press and specialist journals during that week. It is the most comprehensive source of information about work in archaeology and related disciplines, and is primarily intended for the archaeological profession. This service is available by email to IfA members free of charge. The British Archaeological Jobs and Resources (BAJR) website also provides information on archaeological job opportunities.
