Finds Specialist

Negotiable dependent on experience of candidate. All salary, pension and benefits packages will exceed CIfA minima.
Part or full time dependant on candidate


Brief job description/person specification:

L - P : Archaeology is looking to build in house capability in finds specialisms. L - P is a medium sized and growing commercial archaeology practice.

We are seeking expressions of interest from finds specialists to join our team. We do not at this stage have a fixed idea of the structure of this role and see this as an exciting opportunity to build a role around a talented and enthusiastic individual. The role could have a high degree of flexibility both in terms of location and hours worked. To give an idea of the type of applicants we are seeking we have considered two different scenarios as possible outcomes:

· In the case of a more experienced specialist we would look to bring them in at the Partner level, with a genuine and significant role in shaping the future of L - P. The fee earning role would be partly servicing our in house finds requirements and partly seeking opportunities to service external clients. A specialist in this role would have a high degree of autonomy to shape our in house structures and process. At the Partner level the role would involve an element of profit sharing.

· In the case of a less experienced specialist, we would look to build competency and experience in a collaborative way. The specialist would have opportunities for extensive training and career development. The role would be tailored to suit the ambition and talents of the specialist.

L - P : Archaeology are well known as a progressive and considerate employer. We are a partnership and this is at the heart of our ethos. We want everyone who works here to be happy and engaged in what they are doing. We aim to have flexible and highly trained work force who share work and take on a variety of different roles and projects as the need arises.

In order to apply, please email expressions of interest to opportunities [at] lparchaeology.com.

Our team is small but mighty, and has experienced great success to date based on our collective belief in the power and importance of communities for archaeology: digital, local and global.
