Oxford Archaeology is the largest independent archaeological practice in Europe. Since our foundation in 1973, we have worked throughout the UK and on many international projects. We have offices in Oxford, Cambridge and Lancaster in the UK. We are a registered Educational Charity.
OXFORD ARCHAEOLOGY SOUTH
We now have a strong work programme for our Oxford office and wish to recruit extra fieldwork staff. It is possible that our eastern (Cambridge) office may also require staff in the near future. Experience in archaeological fieldwork and excavation at the professional commercial level is essential (minimum 6 months), and a relevant archaeological degree is highly desirable. Membership of the IfA is desirable (min PIfA), as is a current CSCS Health and Safety Card and a clean current driving licence.
We may consider applications from individuals with less experience than stated. In this case applicants may be employed at a trainee rate.
Successful applicants will be offered short term contracts in the first instance (up to 3 months), with possible extension. Benefits include 29 days leave per year (pro rata, including bank holidays, plus up to 3 extra concessionary days), and sick pay. Other benefits include the provision of non-statutory Personal Protective Equipment, and expenses and accommodation provided for away based projects where appropriate.
