Jobs Information Service & Training (JIST)

Bulletin available to all CIfA members by email free of charge and non-members or Institutions for a fee

The weekly Jobs Information Service & Training (JIST) bulletin is the most comprehensive source of information about work and training opportunities in archaeology and related disciplines. We collate a list of all the relevant archaeological jobs as well as academic opportunities and details of CPD training courses.
We also include our CIfA Approved training courses.


Advertisements can be placed in JIST and online for a fee.
Adverts will appear in the JIST bulletin for one week and remain online until the closing date has passed to allow adverts to be seen immediately by as many people as possible. We will also tweet the key details of each advert and include a link to the full advert.

All adverts will need to ensure they meet the CIfA salary minima, this may require consultation within CIfA and further clarification from advertisers. Further information can be found here.

Final copy should be emailed to Lynne Bevan at jis [at] by 5pm on a Wednesday and will be put into the nearest Monday's bulletin. If you have not received a reply within 48 hours please get back in touch as we may not have received your advert.

**Please note firm quotes can only be provided on receipt of full advert text and there may be an extra charge for any revisions. It is the advertisers responsibility to provide all relevant details in their advert, including web links, salary details and a closing date. Word documents are accepted and a logo in .jpg form.

JIST subscription duration

Alternatively non-members may wish to consider joining CIfA as the subscription fee for some levels is cheaper than the cost of subscribing to JIST. Not only would you receive the JIST for free, but you would also receive all CIfA publications.

An alternative job service, providing on-line details of jobs placed by paying advertisers, is provided by the British Archaeological Jobs Resource. CIfA's JIST and BAJR are not competitors, but offer different and complementary services for those seeking archaeological staff or employment.
