Crane operator has an uplifting job

SINCE he finished high school, Rob Terrick-Nugget has had one job.

And it's been an uplifting one.

The crane operator travels to every part of central Queensland working on projects that are helping the region grow and prosper.

He submitted a photo of his workplace to The Observer Facebook page, proud of his place of work.

Mr Terrick-Nugget said he started working with Lee Crane Hire in 1999.

"I love the idea of travelling all around the CQ region," he said.

"I see different mines, mills, factories, pipelines, refineries, power stations, towns and farms."

The ideal of a normal job just doesn't appeal to him anymore.

"The different people we get to meet is amazing," he said.

"It's a different job each day. It's not the same four walls and same people every day."

Lee Crane Hire employs more than 100 people in Gladstone and Biloela and operates about 70 cranes.
