The Tech Head
Whether it’s testing, troubleshooting, or cooperating with technical teams, construction always needs someone that is truly tech-savvy. That’s where a tech head comes in.
Tech heads love to support their colleagues using their in-depth knowledge. Tech heads are extremely organised and solution-driven, making them the go-to guru for all things tech.
Tech heads often:
- Troubleshoot, test and repair technical equipment
- Diagnose errors and technical problems and determine solutions
- Cooperate with technical teams and share information across the organisation
- Make recommendations on repairs, diagnostics and equipment
- Take drawings and produce one set of computer models using specialised programmes
