Cultural Resources Field Technician



SWCA Environmental Consultants is expanding their team of qualified cultural resources technicians based in Colorado. We are looking for field-ready individuals to be key players on primarily survey and testing projects. This position is a temporary, on-call, hourly position. With our offices across the US, we have the ability to move our field staff rapidly to meet these needs. Initial fieldwork will be in support of our Colorado fieldwork projects, with opportunities to expand to support other offices across the country through the winter and early spring, after which work will transition back to support of our Rocky Mountain/Plains projects in the Fall (primarily Colorado and Wyoming).

Our Colorado office network specializes in cultural and natural resources services within a relaxed work environment. We take pride in rapidly delivering on client needs, which can lead to extended field efforts with abundant overtime compensation. Per diem, lodging, and travel are provided for all fieldwork.
