Current Openings

Archaeologist (Permit Holder)

Core is a rapidly-growing company providing archaeological and heritage consulting services within the southeastern (Kootenay) region of BC. We’re pretty new and we’re pretty small, and we have an established and growing book of clients, including municipalities, provincial and federal infrastructure developers, foresters, miners, and private land developers. If going solo feels too risky, and working for a corporate behemoth feels too…corporate, our bowl of porridge may be just right for you.

Our Goldilocks is an experienced BC Interior Plateau Permit Holding Archaeologist (or an experienced Field Director that is close to permit holding eligibility). This is a full-time position beginning in May 2021, with the possibility of immediate remote work on an as-needed basis. You won’t find a long list of duties here, because you’re experienced! You know what the job takes.

Why you want to work here:

  • A jaw-droppingly beautiful work environment (the stops to soak up the views are built into our project timelines).

  • Work/life balance - The Kootenays are an outdoorsy person’s dream, and with no extended camp shifts, you’ll have time to enjoy your hobbies and get that dog you always wanted.

  • Affordable living in Cranbrook, Kimberley, the Columbia Valley, or Golden.

  • The chance to learn more about mountain geomorphology than you ever thought you needed.

  • No health benefits. That’s right. No benefits. We’ll just pay you more, and you can spend your money as you see fit. No more buying into a plan so you can subsidize your co-worker’s prescription aromatherapy. 

Position Location: Cranbrook or Invermere, BC

We want you because you have:

  • Minimum 2 years Field Director status in the Interior Plateau region of BC (preference will be given to existing permit holding status).

  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree in archaeology or anthropology.

  • 5+ years of archaeological field work experience with at least two years as crew lead.

  • Excellent communication skills (interpersonal, verbal, technical and non-technical writing).

  • Strong computer and technology skills (Microsoft 365 suite and field technology).

  • Valid Class 5 Driver’s Licence.

  • Canadian Citizenship or Permanent Residency.

  • Curiosity and questions (Bring them on!).

We REALLY want you if you have:

  • Field Director and/or permit holding status in other regions of BC.

  • Valid First Aid (OFA 1 or above), Bear Aware, ATV/UTV training, or other applicable workplace training.

  • Experience working in rugged mountain environments.

  • An understanding of the true joy of a cold beverage in a hot shower.

Why you REALLY want to work here:

  • Core offers well above industry average wages, commensurate with qualifications.

  • Professional development opportunities and support.

  • Profit-sharing opportunities for those who can attract and serve new business.

Please send your CV with a cover letter and references to: careers@coreheritage.ca. This position will remain open until a suitably great team addition has been selected. We thank all applicants for their interest, but only those we think are awesome enough to interview will be contacted. 

In accordance with the Canadian Human Rights Commission’s Aboriginal Employment Preferences Policy (here), preference will be given to Indigenous applicants.

GIS Technician/Field Technician (a.k.a. Map Geek/Shovel Bum)

Core Heritage is a well-established and rapidly-growing company providing archaeological and heritage consulting services throughout BC’s Kootenay region. Our diverse projects include municipal developments, provincial and federal infrastructure, forestry, mining, and private land developments.

We are currently seeking a trained GIS Guru who will also moonlight as an archaeological field technician as and if needed. For the right person, we’ll put a ring on it and make it a permanent/full-time position, or if you prefer, we can keep it casual/part-time. Either way, the pay is above average, and workload permitting, you can probably take a ski day every now and then.

If you’re not familiar with the Kootenays, you’re probably missing out. We have mountains. We have lakes. We have more biking trails than any one person could possibly ride. If you want city amenities and still want to be five minutes from nature, Cranbrook could be the right fit for you. If you prefer a smaller-town experience, Invermere is beautifully situated on Lake Windermere, and has all the tourist amenities anybody could want.

Wherever you decide to be based, you’ll need to be tolerant of a senior archaeologist who changes his mind on what he wants on the map regularly, willing to travel for work, enjoy working outdoors, be comfortable and capable of sometimes physically demanding work, and be willing to join our culture of safety.
