About us
The Geoarchaeology and Environmental team forms part of the dynamic and ambitious GeoServices section, which brings together technical experts from a wide range of science disciplines.

Our remit is to seek out interesting projects, engage the scientific curiosity and expertise of our teams, and find innovative solutions to our clients’ archaeological problems.

As a team, we get to design and implement some exciting and unusual projects within terrestrial, coastal and marine environments both at home and internationally, as well as working closely with our Fieldwork and Coastal & Marine teams on some of the best archaeological sites across the British Isles.

The role
You will work closely with the Marine Geophysics department, using your expertise (and that of your colleagues in the geoarchaeological team) to investigate, model and interpret submerged palaeolandscapes, using data from laboratory analysis of physical samples in conjunction with the remote sensing results.

As well as reporting and publication of your own work, you will also have the opportunity to edit and synthesise the work of other geoarchaeological and palaeoenvironmental specialists.

The candidate
You should be experienced and confident in the description, interpretation and subsampling of sedimentary sequences, and have a solid understanding of both terrestrial and marine depositional environments. We would expect you to have excellent reporting and communication skills, and ideally hold a post-graduate qualification in geoarchaeology, geology, geomorphology or a related discipline.

A strong publication record would be an advantage, but there will be opportunity to further build your bibliography while in post.

Wessex Archaeology’s Geoarchaeology and Environmental team is based at its head office in Salisbury and also operates from its regional offices in Bristol, Edinburgh, Sheffield, Welshpool and Maidstone. The post would be based in our Salisbury office, although the option to relocate to one of our regional offices at a later date could be an option if desired.

In common with all Wessex Archaeology’s investigations, a certain number of projects require staff to work away from their base from time to time. In such cases, accommodation, travel and subsistence are covered by Wessex Archaeology.

Applicants are invited to submit a completed application form with a copy of their CV, to be returned by e-mail to wa.applications [at] wessexarch.co.uk by 5pm Friday 8 September 2017.

Location: Andover, Cirencester, Exeter & Milton Keynes

Cotswold Archaeology is always on the lookout for talented, ambitious and experienced archaeologists to play critical roles in delivering our ever growing portfolio of projects.

Our current workload and committed projects will see us through all of 2017 and beyond. We are currently working on rural and urban projects throughout southern, eastern and central England.

Live and recent projects include Palaeolithic sites in Oxfordshire, Newark and West London; Iron Age farmsteads in the West Midlands; a Roman Villa in Gloucestershire; a Saxon cemetery in Devon; medieval townhouses in Oxfordshire and Norfolk; post-medieval glass factories in Bristol; and much, much more!

With long-running projects based further afield, as well as those close to our home offices, there are opportunities for ‘away working’ which comes with accommodation plus subsistence payments.

With over 100 archaeologists currently in the field, and plans to grow even further, we are particularly looking for archaeologists keen to support the development and mentoring of our Trainee Archaeologists.

We are also looking for ambitious archaeologists looking to develop their careers. Our award winning Supervisor Designate Training Scheme is available to all experienced and skilled field staff.

Outreach activities are embedded in all the work we do. There will be opportunities for your time and efforts to be paid in supporting our existing community activities and we champion our colleagues to develop their own community-focused projects.

The Package

Along with a starting salary well above the CIfA minimum, we offer a highly competitive benefits package including:
• A generous lieu scheme operated for all driving time, and time spent in excess of 45 minutes each way as a passenger, outside of the normal 7.5 hour working day (accumulate up to 10 days additional lieu time annually)
• 30 days annual leave (including statutory holidays)
• Generous pension and life assurance schemes
• Training and CPD opportunities
• Paid CIfA membership subscription (following qualifying period)
• Employee Assistance Programme

The Details

Archaeologists (£19,158)

Your core skills and experience should include manual excavation and recording of archaeological features, and the recovery of artefacts or samples. You should also be able to complete stratigraphic matrices, photograph archaeological features and sites, use tapes to record measurements accurately, compose accurate measured drawings and take levels.

Experienced Archaeologists (£20,548)
We are also looking for more experienced field archaeologists to assist our Supervisors with the training and mentoring of Trainee Archaeologists and with machine supervision. Candidates with demonstrable and considerable commercial archaeological fieldwork experience, who can provide documented evidence of their proficiency both in core fieldwork skills and machine supervision/watching brief, staff training/development and an aptitude for GPS survey will be eligible for the higher starting salary. In date training in the use of CAT and Genny equipment is also desirable.

For both posts, membership of the CIfA at PCIfA level is desirable, as is possession of a current and valid CSCS Health and Safety Card, and a full driving licence. However, CSCS training can be arranged for those who do not currently possess a valid card. Personal protective equipment will be issued for the duration of employment.
