Client Testimonials

“Over the past 3 years, I have found the level of service received from Optima to be excellent. They have supplied the operators I require when I require them, and I have found that the operators supplied have been competent and reliable. As soon as I require extra operators, Optima are the first call I make and they are very prompt in responding with a positive. I would not hesitate to recommend Optima Site Solutions’ services in the future, as I have done in the past.”

“We have always had the highest level of service from the Optima team. They have helped us out many a time when we have been struggling to cover work. The lads they send to us have all been fully ticketed and always willing to help out. They have now become our main supplier for temp staff.

Thanks for making my job easier.

“Since I have started using Joe Calinski and Optima Site Solutions Ltd, I can wholeheartedly state that the level of service offered is consistently high. We have at times given him next to no notice and miraculously he ‘pulls it out of the bag’.

From the front-end contact of asking for a specific trade through to invoicing, they make the process seem seamless and effortless. Joe has built an incredible team in a short space of time who are well versed in reading the clients needs early on in a contract. For once in my career I am not pestered by consultants offering trades, or promising the planet just to make their targets.

Joe and Optima are the preferred suppliers for all my labour requirements and will continue to be my No1 until such time as standards of service subside. Knowing Joe and the way he operates, I cannot foresee any reason why A2M and Optima will not have a long running client/supplier relationship.

I would not hesitate to recommend Optima Site Solutions Ltd to anyone for their labour requirements.”

Recruitment for Crane and Lifting Professions

Crane operators have an essential role on-site in managing the safety of lifting operations and coordinating those activities. A crane supervisor will ensure that all necessary steps are taken to maintain the safe operation of cranes and lifting equipment. Crane professionals will also ensure that proper health and safety measures are taken and that regulations are followed at all times.

Optima can source operatives for any and all of your lifting requirements, whether you need to find tower crane operator or a heavy lifting specialist for any type of crane: mobile crane, crawler crane, telescopic crane, spider crane, gantry cranes, floating crane, loader crane, rough terrain crane or jib crane.

The degree of responsibility each crane supervisor has on-site will depend on the complexity of the job. A complex multiple crane lift will need more supervision than a basic lift with a standard method. The crane supervisor will ensure there is clear communication between the different parties involved in the operation. Crane supervisors often have to solve logistical problems to ensure that lifting operations can be carried out safely and efficiently.

Experienced, highly skilled crane supervisors are in high demand which can make it difficult to find suitable qualified workers when you need them. By working with a specialised recruitment company you can streamline the crane supervisor recruitment process, ensuring you have properly vetted, experienced and skilled crane supervisors on hand when you need them.
