Post-Excavation Processor

Milton Keynes
£15,605 - £16,376 per annum (dependent on experience)
Fixed Term Contract - Immediate Start

Cotswold Archaeology is one of Britain’s leading independent archaeological fieldwork and consultancy practices. Our professional team offers a broad range of services including pre-application advice, fieldwork and post-excavation analysis and publication.

Due to current high levels of work, we require additional support in our finds processing team, to undertake the processing of finds and samples from all projects. Main duties include washing, labeling and bagging finds, sieving soils and sorting recovered items. This will involve working as part of a small team, and involves physical work, as well as record-keeping and data entry.

If you enjoy working as part of a team, have good communication skills, are reasonably IT literate and have an eye for detail and quality, we would like to hear from you. An interest in a range of archaeological finds and experience in archaeology would be an advantage, as would a full, manual driving licence. We are in a location on the northern edge of Milton Keynes, and you would ideally need your own transport to reach us.

Applications will be processed on receipt and interviews undertaken for successful candidates to start in January 2019; contracts will be offered for up to 6 months.
