Job Description

Head of Operations

This is Archaeology – come and join us….

Can you help the Council for British Archaeology grow, so that more people have chance to participate in archaeology? We are looking for an effective operational manager to ensure the smooth running of our financial and business processes and help us to become more resilient and sustainable.

The Council for British Archaeology helps people to experience archaeology. We provide opportunities for people to take part in archaeology through our network of local and regional groups, the annual Festival of Archaeology and through the Young Archaeologists Clubs for children aged 8-16. We speak up to safeguard the future of archaeology and the historic environment and bring together everyone involved in archaeology.

We are a membership organisation with around 5,000 members and subscribers and provide support to a network of CBA groups. We produce British Archaeology magazine and publish a range of specialist books.

We are looking for a Head of Operations to manage all aspects of our operational and financial processes. We are well on the way to becoming more financially sustainable: we are working on a plan to grow our earned income and have recently developed new digital systems, including a new website and CRM linked to our finance system. We need the Head of Operations to lead the next steps in this journey, focusing on increasing income generation and ensuring we make the most of the new systems.
