Historic Environment Officer (Records) 43164 CELE

Union House, Gressenhall

£21,589 - £23,836 per annum (Scale F)

37 hours per week

Temporary contract/secondment opportunity until 30 June 2020

 

Looking to further your career in archaeology in a rural county with a rich and varied archaeological resource? Do you have a background in the Historic Environment and are eager to use and develop your GIS, database, and archival skills? An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Norfolk County Council’s Historic Environment Record Team.

 

One of the largest HERs in the country, the Norfolk HER provides a comprehensive record of all areas of known archaeological activity, sites, finds, cropmarks, earthworks, industrial remains, defensive structures, and historic buildings within the county. The team maintains strong links with community groups, academics, and professional archaeologists and also supports and works closely alongside other Norfolk County Council Services including the Strategy and Advice, Find Identification and Recording, and Air Photo Interpretation teams. The HER is also proud to maintain a large, unique paper and photographic archive which reflects a long history of successful, forward-thinking projects and services. This is an exciting time to join the HER team, as many elements of the archive are currently being digitised, transforming the way the HER offers its services.   

 

The successful candidate will join a growing team to help maintain, develop, and enhance the HER database, the Norfolk Heritage Explorer website, the Norfolk Air Photo Library, and the HER paper and photographic archives. They will be responsible for interacting with and processing enquiries from a wide variety of users, including professional archaeologists, academics, students, community groups, and individuals. They will also assist in incorporating new data into the electronic systems, participate in project-based enhancement work, and support promotional activities such as talks and workshops.

 

About you: Candidates will have a degree in archaeology or a related discipline and previous experience of working with database software, GIS programmes, and paper and photographic archives. Excellent writing and data entry skills, attention to detail, and the ability to work as part of a team are essential. Previous experience of Historic Environment Records and HBSMR database software would be an advantage but not essential.
