Chance of a Pole Position
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.
