Description

British Antarctic Survey is in the midst of relocating its Halley VI Research Station to a new site in 2017. Halley VI is the first Antarctic research station to be designed specifically to cope with the movement of the ice shelf. This will be the first time that the station has been moved since it became operational in 2012.

We are looking for a Electrical Services Technician to help us deliver this exciting and challenging project.

Once Halley has relocated, you will be carrying out complete fixed electrical test of the station and carry out routine repairs and maintenance. Using your initiative, you will need to be able to work both individually and as a part of a team.

The move is vital for us to continue with our scientific research and you could play a crucial role in our success - do you have what it takes?
