“We’re looking for a range of people across not only trades but field training right through to bureau of meteorology,” said Matt Ryan, the Aerodrome Manager of the blue ice runway Wilkins Aerodrome, Antarctica.
Mr Ryan said working in Antarctica can be a tough but unique challenge even for tasks as small as melting snow for drinking water.
“There’s so many aspects to this experience that are just so difficult to describe; it’s challenging, it’s impossible, it’s achievable and rewarding all in the same instance.”
