JIS Christmas/New Year Arrangements: Following normal service next week, the last issue of the JIS bulletin before Christmas will be going out on 18 December in order for us to include as many jobs as possible before the Christmas/New Year closure. The deadline for receipt of adverts for this issue will be 10 am on 18 December. Due to the anticipated seasonal lull in the jobs market the first issue of 2014 will be going out on 13 January but it will be possible to place adverts on our open-access web page from 7 January onwards. Please send all adverts to firstname.lastname@example.org in the usual format during the break and I will ensure that they are processed at the earliest opportunity. Best wishes, L.B.
IfA provides 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. This service is known as the Jobs Information Service (JIS). It is the most comprehensive source of information about work in archaeology and related disciplines, and is primarily intended for the heritage sector.
The JIS is available to all IfA members by email free of charge. To subscribe to the email list please contact the IfA office on 0118 378 6446 or email email@example.com
JIS is available to non-members for a fee of £20 for 2 months; £40 for 6 months and £60 for one year. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can pay online below using PayPal
Alternatively non-members may wish to consider joining the IfA as the subscription fee for some levels is cheaper than the cost of subscribing. Not only would you be able to receive the JIS by email, but you would also receive a copy of The Archaeologist magazine, the Yearbook and directory of members and other IfA publications. For further information please see our Join page.
Institutions can receive the service for £150 which includes four free advertisements.
Advertisements can be placed in JIS for a fee
- £50 for a single paragraph
- £100 for a standard size (175mm wide by 110mm deep).

Final copy should be emailed to Lynne Bevan at email@example.com and will be put into the nearest Monday’s bulletin. Please send advertisements as simple word documents without complex formatting and send logos seperately.We are unable to accept PDF files.
ROs can advertise in the JIS for free. FAME members can place an advert for the flat rate fee of £75 per advert. All paid adverts will also appear publicly on the IfA website as well as in the compiled JIS bulletin that goes to members and subscribers each week until the closing date has lapsed.

IFA’s Jobs Information Service and BAJR are not competitors, but offer different and complementary services for those seeking archaeological staff or employment.
