SENIOR CONSULTANT - BUILT HERITAGE AND ARCHAEOLOGY - BASED IN SALISBURY, UK
Wessex Archaeology
Salary commensurate with skills and experience (£27,131 - £31,073)
Reference: SALHER 04.18

Wessex Archaeology is one of the largest independent archaeological practices in the UK. We are a registered charity and invest our profits to deliver public benefit by gathering and creating knowledge about the past, interpreting and sharing it. We recognise that our employees are paramount to our success and aim to foster a working environment that protects the physical and mental well-being of our people.

We are seeking a bright and talented Senior Consultant to enhance our established Heritage Consultancy team in Salisbury. You will have expert technical knowledge of historic buildings and archaeology, an understanding of relevant legislation and planning policy, and best practice and guidance on the assessment of the setting of heritage assets.

The team work on a wide range of projects across the country helping our clients manage the effects of change to the Historic Environment. As a company we are involved in some of the most high-profile development projects in the UK in both the terrestrial, marine and built environment. But what really defines the Heritage Team is the diversity of the work we do, from large-scale infrastructure EIA to working with a private client to repair and convert a historic barn – the ability to adapt and to tailor our work to meet the needs of the client is at the core of what we do.

As an experienced heritage professional, you will be educated to at least degree level and have a proven track record assessing the significance of the Historic Environment and the impacts of development upon it. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with an established professional skill area in built heritage, but a good understanding of British archaeology is also essential. You will also be conversant in the interpretation and application of UK planning and legislation as relevant to the Historic Environment.

Working as part of a small, collaborative team you’ll be involved with a wide range of projects across the country. The role will require you to undertake accurate and robust research; write Historic Environment desk-based assessments and impact assessments; undertake settings assessments and demonstrate a clear understanding of current guidance on this matter; and to have the skills and experience to undertake historic building surveys (Level 1-4) and analysis.

You will be expected to manage small to medium-sized projects and take part in business development as well as engaging with internal initiatives for the team. Whilst some management level experience would be advantageous, the role may also suit a talented heritage consultant wishing to take the next step in their career.

Although this role is offered as an office-based, full-time appointment to our core team, Wessex Archaeology is committed to flexible working and we would be pleased to consider applicants seeking either part-time, or other form of flexible working arrangement.

You should be ACIfA (or above) or a member of the IHBC – or be eligible to apply within 6 months. You will also hold valid appropriate H&S and other training certifications and a full UK driving licence.

Applicants are invited to submit a completed application form (available from the vacancies page on our website http://www.wessexarch.co.uk/vacancies with a copy of their CV; returned by e-mail to wa.applications [at] wessexarch.co.uk by 31 May 2018. Receipt of all applications will be acknowledged. Further details, including Job Descriptions can be downloaded from our website. For all queries, please contact Matt Rous (Principal Heritage Consultant), m.rous [at] wessexarch.co.uk.

Whilst Wessex Archaeology welcomes applications from all sections of the community and is committed to promoting equality of opportunity, it is essential that all applicants must be either a British citizen, EU National or hold a full work visa and where appropriate be registered under the ‘Worker Registration Scheme’, or must hold a current work permit.
