Fancy a cool job far from Top End?
IT’S about as polar opposite as you can get from being a tradie in the Territory but if you are looking for a work change with a cool difference, the Casey Station in Antarctica is currently hiring.
Australian Antarctic Division human resources manager Andrew Groom said it was an experience money could not buy.
“Working as part of the Australian Antarctic Program is more than just visiting the icy continent; it allows you to immerse yourself in the extraordinary environment for an extended period,” he said.
More than 150 people are wanted to keep the stations running throughout next season, including station support, telecommunications, infrastructure, aviation, science, mechanical and medical. The employment period ranges from four months over summer, up to 15 months over winter, with summer the busiest.
David Hamilton, 54, said he was living a dream by working as a fridge mechanic.
