We employ over 300 archaeology and heritage professionals, and have offices in London, Northampton and Basingstoke. We employ archaeologists, materials specialists, geomaticians, geophysical surveyors, graphics and photography professionals and enlist the help of our diverse support team, embracing experienced HR and finance professionals.

We offer excellent benefits to our permanent and temporary employees, including: enhanced sick pay, generous pension scheme, group life assurance, season ticket loan, cycle scheme, childcare vouchers, a health care cash plan and a subsidy for CIfA fees.

We support the development of the BAJR staff passport and sign-off skills during employment with MOLA. Owing to the complex nature of urban archaeology we do not require BAJR passport for recruitment.
