NEWS STORY: BAS at recruitment exhibition
British Antarctic Survey takes part in the National Engineering & Construction Recruitment Exhibition 2015
British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is recruiting for engineers and construction workers at this year’s National Engineering & Construction Recruitment Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 April.
Come along and find out about the variety of jobs that are available working in the amazing Antarctic environment, supporting the world class scientific research carried by British Antarctic Survey. The BAS exhibition stand will provide a platform for visitors to meet engineers and construction workers currently working for the organisation, as well as an opportunity to see ‘kit’ designed and developed by existing engineers and ask members of the HR team any questions about future employment.
Ice Coring engineer Dr Julius Rix, will talk about ‘Engineering in a Cold Climate’ and describe his experience of working with scientists to design a new drill to extract ice cores more efficiently – in temperatures as low as -25 degrees C. His talk takes place on Friday 24 April at 2.30pm.
BAS Director of Operations, Tim Stockings, who is attending the show says: “We are delighted to be exhibiting for the third time at this national exhibition. It enables us to take our Antarctic jobs to a range of people who may never have thought about the possibility of working as an engineer or in a construction role in Antarctica. It’s an opportunity to support leading polar science and to work as part of a very special team in a totally unique environment.”
