EPPIC English Heritage Professional Placements in Conservation Training Placements in Archaeological Investigation As part of its programme to further Continuing Professional Development in the Historic Environment Sector, English Heritage is continuing its scheme to provide paid placements for young professionals in archaeology. The intention is to increase professional capacity in this specialism. These opportunities will be with the Archaeological Investigation teams in York and Exeter. The placements will last twelve months, starting on April 1st 2004 and will be based in the field teams surveying historic sites and landscapes. These are training posts and you will be paid a graduate placement salary of c.£13,500 (pro rata) plus agreed travel expenses whilst on fieldwork. As training posts, relocation expenses are not payable. In the course of the year you will develop an analytical approach to landscape archaeology and a familiarity with the techniques, equipment and presentation of interpretative landscape survey. At the end of the year you will re-enter the job market with expertise in a new aspect of the discipline. * Ideally, you will have a degree with at least 18 months work experience in British archaeology after undergraduate level. * You may have a post-graduate qualification or comparable practical experience in archaeology, and you are probably looking for an opportunity to diversify into a new branch of the subject. * You will certainly have a full driving licence. * English Heritage values diversity and aims to employ people who reflect this.
