Jobs in this industry
Skills and Attributes
The transport industry is widely varied, but it’s all centred around being service based. Workers with people skills, organisational ability and an interest in vehicles and infrastructure can readily find work as long as they’re suitably qualified.
Due to the nature of the work involved, many roles require specific licensing (forklifts & crane tickets, locomotive driver license, maritime certifications etc) but these aren’t hard to attain if you’re driven.
