Labour Market Intelligence

Landward Research are the world-leading experts in this field and we are the only heritage-focused Company Partner of the Market Research Society, which ensures that all of our work complies with legal requirements and is undertaken to the highest of standards. This means that you can trust our data, our quality and the cultural value we provide.

This Labour Market Intelligence helps you plan for the future by informing archaeological organisations, educators, trainers and individuals of current market positions and trends.

For three decades we have run a series of projects that gather and analyse data on employment in UK archaeology, these show the dramatic long-term changes in UK archaeology – and employment in the sector. We have a global capacity and have led on projects gathering labour market comparative data in Europe, North America, South America and Africa. You can see examples of these projects below and on our Publications and Blog pages.

Highlighted Projects

Profiling the Profession

Landward Research is undertaking Profiling the Profession 2020, a survey of archaeological employment in the UK, with the support of several funders, looking to gather information from the employers of all archaeologists across the entire UK, whether working in the private, public or third sectors, including museums and universities. This year we will add to the data from employers by asking individual archaeologists to provide information about themselves and their careers. Profiling the Profession 2020 carries on from earlier projects that have been undertaken since 1998, gathering snapshots and drawing together trends across all of professional archaeology.
