Wessex Archaeology is seeking to appoint an experienced manager to join the Geomatics management team. This post will support the department head in driving the continued growth and success of the Geomatics team, in line with the vision and core values of Wessex Archaeology.
This is an opportunity to work as part of a team who contribute to the successful delivery of projects across the Company, including some of the most high-profile developments in the UK, making a key difference in efficiency, safety and project outcomes. Wessex Archaeology believes in the power of high-quality data to transform their understanding of the world, get people excited about heritage and enable people to do their jobs better.
In this role you will drive continuous improvement, ensure the delivery of high-quality service to Wessex Archaeology's clients, see projects to successful completion, advise colleagues, and help to maintain high health and safety standards. You will manage a team within the southern region, providing support and training, and helping them to advance their careers within the structure of our department Career Development Framework.
As a Geomatics Manager, your role will involve all aspects of managing, planning and advising on different types of archaeological surveys, including topographic, walkover, photogrammetry, UAV, laser scanning, and remote sensing surveys. Whilst an archaeological background would be of benefit in this role, the technical understanding of some or all these techniques is considered of primary importance. You will also play a key role in the Company's management of utility risk, through Wessex Archaeology's pre-excavation procedures.
