A Steel Fixer works with concreters to place steel into concrete. You might use steel mesh to reinforce concrete or position steel beams before concrete is poured.

Steel Fixers need to be able to follow directions and work to a plan. You’ll be working as part of a team so good communication skills are essential. Steel Fixers need to be capable of manual labour and should be ready to work outdoors in all sorts of weather.
