Do you love the cold, want an adventure and need a job?

A recruitment drive for the coolest jobs in New Zealand began yesterday.

Antarctica New Zealand is kicking off its annual hunt for staff to work on the world's coldest continent for the coming summer and wintering over next year.

The hotly contested roles at New Zealand's only Antarctic station, Scott Base, include engineers, carpenters, chefs, domestics, field support, field training instructors, mechanics, technical support and telecommunications.

Antarctica New Zealand employs an average of 30 fixed-term support staff at Scott Base over the summer season each year, with 10 wintering over.

They typically spend between six and 12 months on the ice, enjoying 24-hour daylight in the summer months and 24-hour moonlight in the winter with the sun remaining below the horizon.
