What our team loves

“We genuinely have the best team on the planet. They are all so fun, love having a laugh but are also fantastic at knuckling down when it comes to the day to day.”Stacey, Site Administration Team Leader

“In my opinion, Bis has really good operation here. I came from an industry that was super high-stress. I started driving trucks and for me and I’m really enjoying it.” – Rado, MC Driver

 

Overall the crew is really easy to get along with and work with. When you’re away for 2 or 3 weeks, you do get a bit tired, so credit to everybody and the leadership, for all working together as a team. The people and the leaders are what make everything achievable.”Mark, Loader Operator
