Parker - Plant Operator, Pipe Layer - Sydney, NSW, Australia

Neil Parker

Sydney, NSW, Australia


Hello, I have worked in the civil earthmoving industry for 29 years. I have worked as a pipe layer on subdivisions, major water, sewer mains to culverts on road and rail projects. I am a safe and competent plant operator with many years experience on most of what the industry has to offer. Later in my career I was asked to take more responsibility as leading hand and supervisor. I think I was promoted because of willingness, knowledge and energy towards my work. I'm looking for more hands on work as I am enjoying the break form supervision work, but will consider leading hand work if the opportunity arises.
