What it's like to work here
The Anglo-Saxon burial site of Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, Suffolk, is home to a series of burial mounds including the famed Mound One ship burial, thought to have potentially been the resting place of the Anglo-
Saxon king Rædwald. Excavated in 1939 this "incredibly significant treasure trove" changed the way that we thought about the Dark Ages and the history of England.
The site also has an Exhibition Hall, Tranmer House (which was the home of Mrs Pretty who instigated the original archaeological dig), walks and woodland area plus a café, shop, book shop, event space and visitor reception area.
The hauntingly beautiful 255-acre estate is also the setting for many popular walking trails.
Sutton Hoo has undergone a major transformation and partly re-opened mid April this year with other elements of the property opening throughout 2019 including a 17 metre viewing tower at the Royal Burial Ground.
The role will be based at Sutton Hoo but on occasion you may be asked to assist with other properties within the Suffolk and Essex Coast Portfolio.
Please note there is potential for staff accommodation to change on property due to ongoing developments.
