Antarctic jobs up for grabs

Australia’s Antarctic bases are embarking on a recruitment drive.

The Australian Antarctic Division has extended its hiring period for the 2013-14 season after applications plummeted from around two-thousand to just 12-hundred this year because of the mining boom.

The AAD is looking for everything from plumbers to chefs to communications experts.
