Austral Archaeology – Casual Archaeologist Positions – Liverpool / Wollongong / South-Western NSW

Austral is a well-respected archaeological firm that has over 30 years’ experience in the provision of both Aboriginal and historical cultural heritage services across Australia. Austral came under new ownership in January 2019 and that has brought a fresh new vision to our archaeological firm, with a young and vibrant team focused on using the most recent methods and technologies to undertake consulting projects in New South Wales (NSW).

Austral has a range of exciting Aboriginal and historical archaeological projects scheduled throughout 2019 and we are looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our growing team on a casual basis. Our focus is always on wining projects which will not only enhance our profile but will provide staff with stimulating work.

What we’re looking for:

This is an excellent opportunity for casual archaeologists to develop their professional skills and technical ability. You should have a degree (or equivalent) in archaeology, heritage management or a similar field and experience doing archaeological fieldwork. Most importantly, you should have a can-do attitude.

The role:

Assisting with both Aboriginal and historical archaeological survey and excavation projects across NSW.

What we can offer you:

  • Competitive hourly rates – we offer three clearly defined payment bands based around your level of experience and the duties we will expect you perform roughly based on the BAJR G3, G4 and G5 grades.

  • Employment rather than engagement through an ABN.

  • On-time pay.

  • On the job training and development.

  • We will only book archaeologists when project start dates are confirmed. In the event that work is delayed, we will seek to provide payments to cover expenses caused by the delay.
