Closing date:
04 January 2022 at midday
This is an opportunity to lead on the management, protection and promotion of Cambridgeshire’s wide and varied archaeological resource and manage the impacts of an increasingly demanding growth agenda. Cambridgeshire remains one of the busiest areas in the country for archaeological fieldwork and development, and the council’s historic environment team operates a semi-commercial service supporting local planning authorities in the delivery of these challenges whilst at the same time protecting our rich and varied historic environment.

The primary responsibility of the role will be leading a team of archaeological development management officers, ensuring that all appropriate consultations, engagement and interventions are appropriately managed and delivered. You will be expected to liaise with national agencies, developers, consultants, planning authorities and other stakeholders on current and forthcoming projects. You will have your own portfolio of projects, and be expected to make full use of the other development management archaeologists, leading and managing workloads in the most beneficial way.

Reporting to the Head of the Historic & Natural Environment Team, you will be part of the management of this wider service working alongside environmental professionals from other areas of expertise.

We are looking for individuals with an extensive and proven track record in archaeological development management, especially in delivering schemes associated with NSIPs and major housing developments. You will have an excellent understanding and experience of British archaeology and both intrusive and non-intrusive archaeological techniques. You must have a good level of computer literacy, ideally with knowledge and experience of GIS and/or databases, be able to work under your own initiative, lead a team and inspire confidence in those around you. This post is an senior post in one of the largest and busiest archaeological teams in local government that would be of interest to someone in a similar role that that is looking for a new and exciting challenge.

We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Cambridgeshire and want our workforce to be reflective of this diversity, which we believe benefits our employees, the organisation and our communities.

Interviews will be held virtually on Monday 17th January 2022.
