We have a longstanding close relationship with the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) who provide Communications Officers, Plant Operators, Chefs, Cargo Handlers and Logistics Support personnel to work as part of our team at Scott Base over summer. They also deploy staff to the nearby McMurdo Station as part of Operation Antarctica. A Senior National Officer seconded to us from NZDF works in the Christchurch office and provides leadership for all military personnel deployed to Antarctica.
Compass selects a person to run the Scott Base Bar and Store and work with us to appoint somebody from the winter team to lead the Shop/Bar Coordination duties over the winter period.
Downer EDI selects a Telecommunications Technician to work at Scott Base as part of the winter team. They will work closely with our other Technical support staff and Engineering Team.
We will also have two Air New Zealand staff seconded into support roles at Scott Base for part of the summer season.
