British Antarctic Survey (BAS) welcomes students aged 14-19 to explore Polar Science careers through our online work experience event!

BAS is hosting a virtual work experience week from Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July, for 30 students aged 14-19.

Each day runs from around 9/9:30 to between 3:30 and 5pm. Throughout the week we will introduce participants to our organisation, the types of job roles available and skills that can support their career aspirations. The entire week will take place online, so attendees will need access to a computer and internet connection.

Students will e-meet a variety of staff, learning from their experiences, but also carry out problem solving exercises and other breakout work.  We hope that you will finish the week with new contacts and skills!  The week has been designed to be interactive and to appeal to students from all backgrounds and with different abilities, please contact Geraldine Hough at gerhou@bas.ac.uk if you have any accessibility queries.

BAS employs staff in all kinds of roles – science, engineering, environmental protection, logistics, finance, human resources, information services, catering, marine (on board our ship), diving and many more.  We are keen to have a diverse cohort for our work experience week and are happy to discuss supporting any particular additional needs.
