Historic England searching for its next archaeologist apprentice

This is a unique opportunity to become an archaeologist. 

Historic England has a fantastic opportunity for a history lover to pursue a career in archaeology.  

The public body that cares for England’s spectacular historic environment is seeking an archaeological technician apprentice to join its archaeological investigation team.   

This apprentice will have the opportunity to achieve a level 3 apprenticeship, contributing to Historic England’s research on a range of archaeological sites and landscapes.  

The archaeological technician apprentice is offered an 18-month fixed term contract and will be based in York. 

Over 18 months, the successful apprentice will spend 80% of their time in the workplace, working and learning with their team, and 20% of their time will be spent off the job, completing a training programme specifically designed for the apprenticeship.  

While the role will be largely based in the archaeological investigation team’s office in York, the workplace will be varied, making the role highly engaging.  

The role involves travel and time spent in a variety of exciting field locations across England with outdoor work in all weathers, and planned overnight stays when engaged in fieldwork, training or study.  

The apprentice will gain professional skills that will benefit their overall career development. These include aerial mapping and interpretation of archaeological landscapes, archaeological excavation and finds processing, analytical earthwork survey, and geophysical survey of archaeological monuments.
