MOLA logo.jpg 1MOLA is an experienced and innovative archaeology and built heritage practice. We have been providing independent, professional heritage advice and services for over 40 years across the UK and internationally on schemes both large and small. Our commercial services aid clients in development, infrastructure and construction sectors to meet their planning process requirements swiftly and expertly, while our community engagement programmes and research projects aim to share new knowledge with the widest audience possible for the benefit of society.

As one of the largest independent archaeological organisations in the UK, MOLA is entering 2021 with a wide range of interesting, exciting and challenging projects forthcoming, across a range of types and periods. MOLA are therefore recruiting a Digital Data Officer to help us meet the digital future. 


The role

The Digital Data Officer will play an integral part in maintaining and archiving the rapidly increasing quantities and types of digital data generated by our archaeological projects, as well as implementing MOLA’s new data management strategies across the business. The role will work across all areas of the archaeological process, from project set up, aiding data creators in the field and in post-excavation through data maintenance and structure, and in aiding the archives team in preparing digital materials for deposition in accordance with industry standards. The successful candidate will also collaborate with other colleagues in supporting MOLA’s commitment to digital innovation in all aspects of its work and there may be opportunities for expansion of the role.


Skills and experience

The successful candidate will have good attention to detail and be able to follow current procedures to ensure high data standards. They will be required to contribute to improving procedures and practice in their scope of work. They will be a champion for best practice in data management and their enthusiasm and team working will encourage and support good practice in data management with internal stakeholders in all departments.

Although a knowledge of archaeological practice, recording methods and digital preservation would be desirable, we would also welcome expressions of interest from candidates from other disciplines who feel they have transferable skills that they could bring to the post.
