Available to all CIfA members by email free of charge
The Jobs Information Service & Training (JIST) is the most comprehensive source of information about work in archaeology and related disciplines. Through the JIST we provide a weekly jobs bulletin that includes adverts placed directly by employers and all archaeological, heritage, research and training opportunities that appear in the national press and specialist journals during that week. The JIST is available to all CIfA members by email free of charge. To subscribe to the email list please email admin [at] archaeologists.net.
Advertisements can be placed in JIST for a fee
Please note firm quotes can only be provided on receipt of full advert text and there may be an extra charge for any revisions
Final copy should be emailed to Lynne Bevan at jis [at] archaeologists.net by 5pm on Wednesday and will be put into the nearest Monday's bulletin. Please send advertisements as Word documents with links to websites and send logos separately.
If you have not received a reply within 48 hours please get back in touch as we may not have received your advert.
CIfA reserve the right to make additional charges if adverts are larger than the client has specified.
The deadline to receive adverts in time for the following Monday’s JIST is Wednesday at 5pm. The reason for this is that we need to ensure compliance of all adverts with CIfA salary minima, which may require consultation within CIfA and further clarification from advertisers.
Please note any advert with below recommended salary minima (see below) will be subject to scrutiny and in some cases rejection.
Since we have become Chartered the membership grades should be listed as PCIfA, ACIfA and MCIfA, this is because the Institute is Chartered and not the individuals.
Registered Organisations can advertise in the JIST 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 CIfA website as well as in the compiled JIST bulletin that goes to members and subscribers each week until the closing date has lapsed.
Copy should be sent by email to Lynne Bevan, JIST Compiler at jis [at] archaeologists.net.
Please note from 1 April 2016 CIfA recommended minimum salaries for 2016/2017 are: (This applies to any job advert placed with a closing date from 1 April onwards)
PCIfA responsibilities £17,646, ACIfA responsibilities £20,561, MCIfA responsibilities £26,568
Advertisers are reminded of CIfA recommended minimum salaries for 2015/2016 are:
PCIfA responsibilities £17,299, ACIfA responsibilities £20,150, MCIfA responsibilities £26,045
For the guidance of employers seeking to determine appropriate starting salaries for archaeologists, we provide the following figures based on a study of salary levels in comparative professions.
JIST is available to non-members for a fee of £20 for 2 months; £40 for 6 months and £60 for one year. Please email admin [at] archaeologists.net or you can pay online below using PayPal.
Alternatively non-members may wish to consider joining CIfA as the subscription fee for some levels is cheaper than the cost of subscribing. Not only would you be able to receive the JIST by email, but you would also receive a copy of The Archaeologist magazine, the Yearbook and directory of members and other CIfA publications. For further information please see our Join page.
Institutions can receive the service for £150 which includes four free advertisements.
An alternative job service, providing on-line details of jobs placed by paying advertisers, is provided by the British Archaeological Jobs Resource. CIfA's Jobs Information Service & Training and BAJR are not competitors, but offer different and complementary services for those seeking archaeological staff or employment.
