SEARCH is at the forefront of the Cultural Resources Management industry, and we continuously seek top talent.
We have high expectations for ourselves, our staff, and our company. A career with SEARCH likely will be more challenging and more demanding than your previous job. We strive for the best out of our people, and we encourage you to apply if you can deliver consistently great work with an optimistic and positive attitude.
If you believe that you are among the finest at what you do, then we encourage you to apply to work with us and enjoy a career that is professionally and personally rewarding (and fun). To help you decide whether SEARCH is a good fit for you, we’ve listed a few of the values which are important to us:
1. Expertise – We are subject matter experts.
Our staff members are in command of the current research, methods, and best practices of their discipline, as well as the laws, regulations, guidelines, policies, and protocols that affect their field.
2. Passion – We eat, sleep, and breathe cultural resources management.
We work hard and we enjoy the rewards of hard work. We come in early if need be, and we stay late because we love what we do (and because of an occasional deadline). Often many of us are active in our field in our own personal time because CRM is in our blood.
3. Teamwork – We communicate well and often.
We are a multidisciplinary team of professionals, and we work best when we collaborate and share ideas within our immediate teams and enterprise wide.
4. Improvement – We continually strive forward and don’t settle.
We are constantly improving our own work, our processes, and our products, and we embrace new ideas that make us better. Never do we say, “It’s good enough” or “It’s only a draft.”
5. Perfection, please – Attention to detail matters to us.
We are looking for people who consistently deliver superior work products and who carefully craft every field note, e-mail, letter, agenda, map, photo, table, computer file name, and multi-volume technical report. SEARCH’s excellent reputation is based on our delivery of outstanding work, and we take this very seriously.
6. “Please” perfection – Manners matter to us.
We are looking for people who are in command of social graces. Opening the door opens doors.
SEARCH is a stable career choice. We have steadily expanded our staff, offices, services, and client base over the last 20 years, including growing by 54% during the global economic crisis. We offer a great package to those who come aboard with us.
