Driver & Garage Hand
Ulrick joined the team in December 2017 largely to carry out driving tasks but also to ensure the fleet is clean, tidy, fuelled and checked ready for tasking as directed by the Office team and the Fleet Manager.
As a result of increased demand, we recruited a second mechanic to join the garage team. Darrell moved to the Falklands from St Helena in September 2017 and joins his brother Nathan in providing an excellent garage service to our customers.
FITT also employ around 40 casual employees who hold HGV, PSV1 or PSV2 licences or are guides for the tourist season. Without these casual staff we could not provide the services we do to our valued clients.
