Community Archaeologist (trainee)
DigVentures
£18,000 p.a.

Location: Barnard Castle, with some home-based and away working
Interviews: 18/05/17

Does working with an innovative, community-focused archaeology social enterprise sound like fun? If so, we’re looking for a very special Community Archaeologist to join our core team. You’ll be working across our excavation projects with a particular focus on coordinating finds and samples, making sure they are expertly looked after on-site and working with the wider project team to help deliver our post excavation projects. You don’t need to have a particular expertise in materials (we can train you up in what you need to know), but you do need to be passionate about finds, super-organised and happy to get your toothbrush dirty! This position will also be key in establishing our office in Barnard Castle, so you should expect to be based locally with the majority of your time in the office.
Much of our fieldwork takes place between May and September, and you will find yourself supporting our excavation projects over the summer from the middle of a field. That might include pitching in with digging as well as working with all our participants, including schools, volunteers and our all-important Venturers. You need to be happy and confident in working with people of all ages, and generous about sharing your experience and skills with others. Top-notch communication, a love for telling people about archaeology and some well-honed people skills are a must. DigVentures is a digital and social enterprise; we use technology a lot in our projects and care about making an impact with our work, so you need to be comfortable with all things online and thoughtful about the contribution that archaeology makes in the wider world.
You will be line managed by our Programme Manager and fully supported by the rest of the team across all areas of training. We will do our best to match your professional goals to opportunities available in our work. Please note, we are looking for applicants with demonstrable experience in the areas listed below. This can be gained either in professional roles or through volunteering, training or studies – but make sure you let us know as much as you can in your application about relevant skills, knowledge and ideas. You will need:

• Experience of field archaeology
• Experience of the post excavation process, and the role that finds play in archaeological sites
• Writing of archaeological site reports and desk-based assessments
• Communicating with people of all ages
• Great time management and organisational skills
• Experience of using technology in archaeology
• Some knowledge of writing for digital output such as blogs and social media
• Ideas about why archaeology matters
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. We’re looking for someone who shares our values and is excited about expanding their skill set, as well as working alongside our professionals and volunteers.

Job requirements
• Archaeology or heritage degree, qualification, or equivalent experience*
• At least 6-12 months’ experience in a similar or related role delivering educational programmes about archaeology
• At least six months archaeological field experience (this does not have to be continuous)
• Knowledge of social media platforms and/or WordPress
• Good organisational, time and self-management skills; must be comfortable setting own schedule
• Knowledge of applications, including Windows, Word Excel and PowerPoint
• Ability to work as part of a dispersed team
• A driving license and own transportation is desirable
• Do you have other proficiencies that could be relevant to this post? Please include details

*Remember, experience can be professional, voluntary, via training or your studies

Interested?
Send us a CV and a short covering letter (300 words max) detailing why you want to be our Community Archaeologist, what you do for fun, and any relevant experience to hello [at] digventures.com
