Powering an Adventure Revolution

Returning to Explorers Connect

How to get a job in Antarctica

Becky Goodall

From Nov 2017- Mar 2017 I was able to experience almost 4 months living on tiny Goudier Island, Port Lockroy on the Antarctic Peninsula, working for the United Kingdom Antarctica Heritage Trust (UKAHT). I had seen the job on Explorers Connect in 2015 and after an unsuccessful application that year, I kept my eyes open and when the position was again advertised in 2016, I applied and was successful.

Following his death, members of his family established the fund in order to encourage and foster a higher level of safety, good practice and sustainability amongst young climbers and mountaineers.
