|Title||Archaeological Geophysicist – Assistant/Supervisor – permanent contract|
|Salary||£19,500 – £23,000|
|Location||Bradford based, working all across the UK|
Magnitude Surveys has recently expanded to five survey teams and is seeking to promptly recruit individuals with archaeological, geophysical or geological backgrounds to help the company meet diversifying workloads. The position will entail mostly field-based responsibilities with a mix of office-based training. These could include:
• Field survey: this generally entails working away in a team of two using hand-pulled or quad-towed magnetometer survey systems, as well as GPR and EM surveys. Experience in undertaking geophysical surveys is essential for the supervisor role, but full training will be given for the assistant position.
The ideal candidate would possess the following:
• Full clean UK/EU driving licence including experience driving off road
Although the above qualifications are preferred, we encourage anyone with a keen interest in archaeological geophysics to apply. Full training will be given to the right candidate.
Company wide profit sharing bonus scheme.
Travel to site, accommodation and subsistence is paid for while away from the office. Full PPE will be provided, including Gore-Tex or equivalent waterproofs and safety boots.
Magnitude Surveys encourages and supports its staff professional development by funding conference attendance and presentation, as well as training workshops. CIfA membership and a current CSCS card are desirable, but not essential. Magnitude Surveys will support the successful candidate in obtaining both CIfA membership and a CSCS card if they do not have one.
The successful candidate will be automatically enrolled into the NEST workplace pension scheme with matched employer contributions of up to 6%. Magnitude Surveys offers 31 days holiday including bank holidays, in addition to any company shutdown days.
The Company and the Candidate
The ideal candidate would have an MSc in archaeological prospection or similar qualifications. As the position requires survey work away from site, a full, clean driving licence is therefore essential. The office-based responsibilities will be based in our head office, conveniently situated between Bradford and Leeds with good links to the motorway and public transportation network.
