Really enjoyed working for the company until change of management and sadly I chose to leave as a result.
Senior management really cared about their employees, was difficult to fit in.

I found working for McCosker Contracting very fulfilling and enjoyable.

Daily events included but not limited to:


* Early starts for "pre-start" meeting and work force assessment (random D & A's) positive and enjoyable. Formed a trust bond between workers, supervision and management.


* Work site and safety inspections, incident investigations(rare).


* McCosker Contracting Inductions.


* Operator assessments for Verification of Competency(V.O.C.) including Legislative compliance, general knowledge assessment(theory) and operator skill set(practical).


* Documentation and storing of results for auditing purposes.


* Researching of A.S.Q.A. or other guidelines and Unit Descriptors to comply with various training and assessment procedures.


* Delivery of above training procedures in accordance with guidelines and descriptors in either a class room environment or onsite as per identified procedure( usually both).


* I improved my classroom delivery of training, interaction and management skills, and learned a lot about W.H.S. compliance and implementation. Also improved my computer operating skill set.


* Over all management of McCosker Contracting was very good but pockets of resistance to progress in some divisions of workforce.


* In my capacity of Trainer and Assessor/ Safety Adviser I needed to tread a very "fine line" between a wide variety of workers and management. As such it was difficult to maintain a positive opinion of my value within the company.


* Having a position that allowed me to interact with both the "hands on" workers
