A Driller operates equipment used to extract minerals, liquids or gases from underground. You might work on a drilling rig, in the mining industry or in other roles to take samples and remove resources from within the earth. Drillers set up equipment and relocate it to other positions as required. You might also carry out servicing and maintenance on your equipment or arrange repairs when necessary.
Drillers need to be able to work as part of a larger production team and communicate well with colleagues. You should be able to follow directions and prioritise your work tasks. Time management is important and you may have to handle several tasks at once. Drillers often work irregular hours and may have to travel long distances to a work site.
