The projects will be planned and delivered in partnership, where practically achievable, with other service providers who have clients and / or audiences relating to the CAVLP area to deliver a range of other socially, culturally and economically beneficial outcomes.

If this sounds like a job you would like to do, you’ll need a high-standard academic and/or professional qualification in science, relevant to the historic environment. A clear and comprehensive understanding of the logistics involved with providing scientific advice in the context of planning-led casework will be vital, as too will knowledge and understanding of archaeology and the historic environment.
