Job With A View


Commonly described as "a man with his head in the clouds, or "the most looked-at man in Gisborne," Atu Hohepa is neither a dreamer or a male model, but he is the operator of the giant crane on the Post Office site and, if anyone is a little envious of his job, take a look at how he gets up there; there are no elevators up to this office, so it's certainly not for the faint hearted.


At his controls in the steel monster.
