Fancy a job in the Antarctic?

The Australian Antarctic Division is currently on a recruitment drive to fill 100 jobs.

Human resources manager Andrew Groom said the division was looking for electricians, plumbers, carpenters, chefs, and doctors for a new team of expeditioners for the 2017/2018 season.

Good technical skills are important, as is a tolerant and resilient personality.

There are 469 people working on Australia's Antarctic Program — one in five are scientists and the rest work in trades and support roles.

"The main purpose of our work is to protect Australia's interests in Antarctica, but also to undertake a range of scientific research," Mr Groom said.
