At the 2016 CIfA Conference our Graduate Trainee programme was Highly Commended in the Archaeology Training Forum Awards. We have inducted over 100 trainees into the programme since early 2014, and many of them are still working for us, now as experienced excavators and supervisors.

We have field projects underway that mean we can already offer work in both Cambridgeshire and Norfolk throughout much of 2018. We are therefore particularly interested in candidates located in these areas. We also have other excavations elsewhere in the eastern region.

We operate a policy of single rooms for all away-based staff.

Position requirements:
• A degree in archaeology, or equivalent academic knowledge and practical ability
• A full clean driving licence is desirable

What we offer:
• A documented training programme

Successful candidates will be offered a 12 week contract (37.5 hours per week) on the starting salary level, with a twelve week extension, at the higher salary level (subject to availability of work) to allow completion of the Training Programme. Staff who successfully complete the scheme will, subject to the availability of work, be offered permanent contracts at Archaeologist level.
