Tim Fahey at Taylors Contracting

Drain Layer

Tim Fahey joined Taylors shortly after leaving school at 16. Since that time he has completed his NZ Certificate in Infrastructure Works (Pipeline Construction & Maintenance) with strands in Drinking Water – Stormwater & Sewer, Level 4. Tim works in the drainage crew and says that the past three and a half years with the company have been full of variety.

The drainage team moves around all departments where pipe work is required so locations can be varied from urban subdivisions to remote forests or rural road networks.  

Tim says that he already had a good idea of what Taylors was like as a workplace.

“I knew it was a good place from my uncle Mike, who still works here, and my cousin Gilbert, who used to work here too. I knew the opportunity was here to move up and move forward.”

School wasn’t a place where Tim thrived. “I did the trades programme at school in civil infrastructure. I did a couple of months of that and ended up leaving school early to come here. That was the best thing I ever did. Learning on the job suited me better.”

Tim is motivated by the range of options available to him within the business.

“There’s an opportunity to keep moving up and moving forward within the company. There are so many avenues and routes you can go on. If I didn’t want to do pipe laying anymore, the business is so diverse, there are lots of opportunities to upskill and retrain.

He enjoys the fact that everyone at Taylors sees themselves as part of one big team and that they always try to help each other out.

“Here people in different teams are happy to lend a hand and push other people forward even if you’re not working with them. They see themselves as part of the larger team not just their own little team.”
