archaeology and heritage consultant/senior

Cardiff, Cheltenham or Cirencester

EDP is the place to build your career, where we seek to identify, nurture and develop experts through involvement in challenging and rewarding projects. We place significant value on our EDP Team and we are extremely proud of the culture and brand we have built and are continuing to build on. As a result, we have exceptional staff retention across our three offices.


Our Archaeology and Heritage Team is looking for a Senior Archaeology and Heritage Consultant to join us to help us deliver our expanding portfolio of interesting, diverse and challenging projects throughout England and Wales.


As a Senior Consultant, you will ideally have both demonstrable experience in an archaeological fieldwork role (or the knowledge and ability to design, commission and manage the completion of programmes of archaeological work) and a proven track record in heritage consultancy. You will not only provide technical project support to the wider EDP Archaeology and Heritage team, but also bring significant experience to the business across a range of project types and scales.


You will have an enthusiasm for multi-disciplinary projects, but more importantly be enthusiastic regarding the opportunities to work with our clients, other Project Managers and members of the EDP Team. However, most of all, you will provide solution-focused and pragmatic advice to our clients on a wide variety of archaeology and heritage projects and deliver high quality technical outputs to inform and support a range of development proposals.


This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to develop their professional skills, project management and technical ability by working within the wider EDP team.


You will have a sound professional reputation and be conscious of the need to develop a diverse network of contacts; showing energy, enthusiasm and excellent client care skills to advance your professional reputation and create your own portfolio of projects.


The successful candidate will be positive, proactive, client focussed, and be committed to maintaining their expertise through internal and external training and research and ideally be at least an Associate member of the CIfA .


We offer a very competitive benefits package.


If you are interested in joining our team, please send a comprehensive CV and covering letter, along with written and visual work examples (if applicable) to Hannah Parkin at:

We have adapted to this new way of working, ensuring that our team members are supported and engaged with each other over digital platforms. Site work continues as normal and we have robust Health and Safety policies and procedures in place to maintain a duty of care to all our team members.


We will be reviewing applications as they are received, with the intention to appoint as soon as possible.
