Yorkshire East-Midlands

Over the past nine years Ecus has developed a reputation for pragmatic and proportionate advice whilst working collaboratively with clients to find solutions to their heritage issues.


About this opportunity

With continual growth, along with the recent acquisition of Northern Archaeological Associates, we have a busy and growing geophysics programme, with a current range of green energy, infrastructure and business development projects.

Due to a continuing increase in demand for geophysical survey projects, we are looking to recruit a motivated and experienced geophysicist to join our team and to help coordinate and run our portfolio of geophysical survey projects.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced geophysicist looking to advance their career and ready to make the move to help lead and grow an established but small geophysical team in a company planning for growth.

The role will involve a mixture of site and office work. Candidates should be amenable to working in a range of different outdoor environments, working flexible hours and away from the office.
