Career Progression Grade £16,481 - £17,547 (CBG5) or £17,891 - £19,939 (CBG6). PCIfA accreditation is regarded as demonstrating competence in line with the CBG6 criteria.
Permanent, 37 hours per week
Reference: 5530

A trading unit of Central Bedfordshire Council, Albion Archaeology undertakes a range of archaeological projects, principally within the surrounding region but also further afield. We have a busy programme of upcoming fieldwork, so we’re looking to increase the size of our field team. This is your chance to work on a diverse range of commercial projects as part of a friendly, supportive team with a reputation for quality work.

You’ll work in a variety of locations and although most projects are accessible from our base in Bedford, occasional working away may be required, for which accommodation and subsistence will be provided.

Committed to working to high professional standards, you will demonstrate an understanding of commercial archaeological practice, with experience of working on excavations. If you do not already have PCIfA accreditation you will be working towards it. Confident in a fast-paced, time-pressured role , you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of health and safety within a construction-related environment. Above all, you’ll be a highly motivated team player, keen to make your mark in our successful organisation.

Our jobs are permanent and we are committed to providing all staff with opportunities for career development. Whilst your principal role will be to undertake fieldwork, we endeavour to give team members experience of a wide variety of projects at all stages of the archaeological process. Those appointed to CBG5 would be expected to progress to CBG6 in line with the criteria listed in the job description. We are committed to providing the right support to help you achieve this.

All applications received by 26 July 2016 will be put forward to the selection process for immediate recruitment. We anticipate that we will require staff on an ongoing basis and would therefore welcome applications beyond this date or from people who may not be immediately available. Successful applicants will be placed on a shortlist from which the most suitable candidates will be selected in accordance with our future project requirements. We will endeavour to inform all applicants of the outcome of their application, although if you do not hear back within four weeks please assume that you have been unsuccessful.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to undertake a short telephone interview. Please ensure that your named referees are willing to provide a reference and that they can be contacted using the details you have provided. If we are unable to contact your referees the process may be delayed.
