COMMUNITY ARCHAEOLOGY BURSARIES COORDINATOR
(PART TIME - FIXED TERM)
The Council for British Archaeology (CBA), a registered charity (287815) with a secretariat based in York, is seeking to appoint the above post to manage the new Community Archaeology Bursaries Project supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, with additional support from English Heritage, Cadw and the Welsh Archaeological Trusts.
The Community Archaeology Bursaries Project supports work-based training placements across the UK which aim to provide valuable workplace learning opportunities for individuals with a background in archaeology who are seeking to develop their skills in working with community groups and running community archaeology projects.
You will be managing a UK-wide project, and will have a number of responsibilities, including managing the project budget, filling the vacant bursary places and overseeing their placement experience, liaising with project partners across the UK, overseeing, coordinating and evaluating training events, identifying and selecting appropriate bursary host organisations and reporting regularly to the Project Board and funding bodies. Awareness of CPD, people management and the NVQ process/the use of NOS would be an advantage.
The part-time Bursaries Coordinator post (21 hours a week) is likely to be based in York (although other options are possible) and is on a fixed term contract ending in July 2014.
Salary: starting salary of £20,810 p.a. (pro-rata) and an excellent package of benefits including generous pension.
