Construction Operatives carry out practical tasks that help skilled construction workers; this may include digging trenches, mixing and laying concrete, operating machinery, using equipment such as cement mixers, drills and pumps, and move, load and unload materials. The work can also involve driving construction site vehicles. Operatives are often responsible for keeping the site tidy and looking after tools and equipment.
