BAJR Poverty Impact Report

CIfA strongly welcomes the Poverty Impact Report, published on 21 September by BAJR, which provides a powerful insight into how the cost of living crisis is affecting archaeologists. CIfA recognises the critical impact that the problem of low pay has on the profession.

The industry, including CIfA, has a collective responsibility for finding solutions. Especially as these longstanding problems are now being magnified by national crisis, to the extent that people’s lives, their physical & mental wellbeing are being fundamentally impacted.

We will be looking closely at the information in this report and discussing with the Industry Working Group, and will issue a more detailed response soon. In the meantime, you can read the report here:
