  • Operating some machinery and heavy equipment
  • Following instructions from supervisors and implementing the quality plan

Skills and qualifications

You will need to have a ‘can do attitude’ and be prepared to follow instructions. While the job is largely physical, there is also a range of mental skills and general common sense knowledge you will ideally possess.
