Imagine this…

A memorable sea voyage, an encounter with King Neptune, summer days where the sun never sets and the chance of a lifetime to experience what most people can only dream about.

And we will pay you!

Interested?

The Australian Antarctic Division is offering a final chance of working opportunities for highly competent men and women at its stations in Antarctica and on Macquarie Island for 2008.

We are looking for:

  • Electricians

  • Carpenters
  • Diesel Mechanics
  • Engineering and Building Services Supervisors and
  • General tradespeople

These positions are required to support Australia’s science programme in Antarctica and are important in the smooth operation of our stations – Casey, Davis, Mawson and Macquarie Island.

Antarctica is a challenging environment but the rewards are second to none. If you think you have what we need, let’s hear from you.

These positions were advertised in national and state/territory capital daily newspapers on Saturday 19 May, 2007.
