PCA is one of UK’s largest archaeological companies, with seven regional offices across the country. We have been delivering professional heritage services for more than 25 years. We are delighted to announce the opportunity to join our multi-disciplinary team of specialists, as we start 2021 with a range of exciting projects across the Midlands, undertaken from our office in Barford (Warwick). Our recent and ongoing sites in the region include those of Iron Age, Roman and medieval date, and we have a number of large scale rural and urban projects of all periods forthcoming.
We will be looking to recruit staff at Trainee and Field Archaeologist levels. PCA offers a competitive salary and a range of attractive employee benefits. All the successful candidates would benefit from having an interest in history and/or archaeology, enjoy working outdoors and be able to undertake physical work (eg. digging and being outside in any weather), often in challenging weather conditions.
All applicants must have good oral and written English, and be able to display competent maths skills. Although preference will be given to graduates of archaeology and related subjects, we also welcome science and technical degree holders, as well as people passionate about history and heritage.
Candidates with no relevant experience or degree could be offered an initial 3-month trainee contract, if they are able to show an interest and passion for archaeology. All successful candidates will undergo a probationary 3-month period, after which, given satisfactory performance, they will be offered a permanent contract.
