When you like getting out and about and walking to keep fit, a career that also keeps you on your feet gives added benefits.
Bruce Holmes works in Ventia’s Whole of Government cleaning contract and is responsible for facilities including the SES facility at Tighes Hill in Newcastle north of Sydney, as well as the local fire station.
Bruce says he likes that his job helps keep him fit, especially at the SES facility where he regularly goes up and down three flights of stairs.
“I make sure I drink lots of water to stay hydrated,” Bruce says, noting that both his health and working safely are a big priority for him.
Bruce has held a wide variety of jobs over the years, including working in a cotton mill where they made cotton used by the clothing brand King G, and then 25 years working in the mining industry as a machinist, making bolts for underground mining.
