Chance of a Pole Position

September 6, 2008

PLUMBERS who want to get away from it all are invited to apply for a rare job – in Antarctica.

The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) need general maintenance workers for their Bird Island research station.

The lucky candidates will support scientists studying wildlife.

James Miller, of BAS, said: ” This is an amazing opportunity. Where else can you work in an environment surrounded by penguins, seals and icebergs?

“This is a tremendous opportunity for someone with a sense of adventure to try something completely different.”

The contracts last from five to 18 months. Applicants shouldn’t mind the cold – temperatures plummet to – 20C in winter.
