Grab the chance to work in conservation in South Australia
The South Australian Tourism Commission, working in association with STA Travel and Tourism Australia, is offering travellers the chance to win a job as a conservation assistant on Kangaroo Island. This job offer is part of a wider campaign designed to boost awareness of the opportunities for young people in Australia.
As youth unemployment soars in the UK and the reality of university fees bite, an increasing number of young people are heading to Australia to work. STA Travel has reported a 10 per cent rise in the sale of Working Holiday Visas in the last six months with further growth expected.
This trend has prompted STA Travel to offer young people the chance to win one of seven jobs each situated in a different Australian state and territory. In South Australia the opportunity is to work on Kangaroo Island as a conservation assistant on Seal Bay.
Kangaroo Island is widely regarded as Australia’s fourth icon, famed for its abundance of free roaming native wildlife. Seal Bay Conservation Park in turn is one of only two places in the world where visitors have the opportunity to walk amongst a breeding colony of rare Australian sea lions.
Flights, the job and visa fees are all included in the prize. To be in with a chance of winning one of these jobs go to www.facebook.com/STAtravel.UK
