Office Manager, London

“I have worked in archaeology for 30 years and it has always been very important to me that I work within a company that actively recognises, recruits and upskills the people we need to fulfil our mission.  The variety of training opportunities and means of advancement are testimony to our core values. I have enjoyed growing my skill sets and seeing the  confidence of our team develop.

The Company’s clear approach to adding value to our clients’ projects and delivering benefits to society makes this job a perfect fit for me. It is particularly important to me that we deliver on these commitments and I am proud of our pioneering work in establishing and funding the Community Archaeology Radiocarbon Dating fund and all the work we do supporting community groups across the country.”


Projects Officer and Team Leader, Tyneside

“I have worked at ARS Ltd now for 10 years having graduated from York University in 2008. I began with the company as an Archaeological Officer and have worked my way up to Projects Officer and Team Leader of our Tyneside Office. ARS has always been a very friendly place to work with a great team spirit.

What I’ve been particularly grateful for is the training that I have received whilst working here. Training in all aspects of commercial archaeology is offered frequently and any suggestions from staff members for further training are always seriously considered. This training has allowed me to acquire a wide range of skills which helps make me feel that I’m making a valuable contribution to the company but also keeps my role diverse and interesting.”


Assistant Projects Officer, Bakewell

“I originally joined Archaeological Research Services Ltd as a work experience student in 2010, whilst taking my GCSE exams, and this helped me to get a place on the degree I wanted, studying Archaeology at the University of Sheffield.

Three years later I came back to work as a casual employee for the company while at University and this allowed me to see how my education could be applied more directly in the workplace. On finishing my masters degree in 2015 I became a permanent employee of the company as an Archaeological Officer.

The company has supported my development as an archaeologist, providing me with a varied workload and ownership of projects of all sizes, shapes and periods. I have been promoted to Assistant Projects Officer and now spend my time running some of our field project teams. It brings me a great deal of pride to look back on my development within the company and I look forward to continuing to grow into a more senior role.”


Business Administrator, Bakewell

“After a long 20 year plus rewarding NHS medical secretarial/administration/PA career I moved to Archaeological Research Services Ltd as Business Administrator.

I enjoy working with all of my colleagues at ARS Ltd as well as my varied role, being part of the management team and the interesting archaeology environment I am now in. I also thoroughly enjoyed the 2018 staff training day event which was held in Northumberland at The Sill National Landscape and Discovery Centre. There was a good variety of informative sessions presented and an excellent opportunity to bring colleagues from all offices together.”
