The fast and the fearless

Almost all construction projects use machinery and every machine, large or small, needs highly skilled people to make sure it’s ready for safe use. Machine heads are just the people for the job.

Whether it’s a crane sitting 1,000 feet in the air or a 1,000 tonne machine tunnelling an underground railway, a machine heads fearlessness and focused attitude keeps the whole operation running smoothly.

  • Work at heights
  • Use big machinery
  • Are an expert at one specific type of machinery
  • Carry out safety checks and overlooking general maintenance
  • Are outside based
  • Give clear directions
  • Possess excellent hand-eye coordination
