Window cleaner just hanging around
WANT an office job with scenic views?
You couldn't do much better than being a high-rise window cleaner.
Sebastien Kazimierski, who has been working as an abseiler/cleaner for close to 10 years, could imagine doing any other job.
“This is the first job I've ever had that I will never get bored of,” Mr Kazimierski said.
“I like the heights, working on my own, having to look after my own safety and the beach views.”
Mr Kazimierski, who was cleaning the Tweed Ultima apartments yesterday with three of his fellow workmates at All Industrial Abseilers, began abseiling in his native Poland and has loved the job ever since.
“I started out rock climbing before one of my friends asked me to do some abseiling for his business,” he said.
“I had a break from doing it when I came to Australia and I really missed it.
“I really couldn't wait to get back up here.
“It's the best thing that I could ever do.”
Mr Kazimierski has worked up and down the Gold Coast, but especially loves coming to the Tweed to work.
“I love working anywhere near the beach.”
His workmate Tom Kane said the weather had been a small issue yesterday, with the early morning rain halting their progress before the wind caused them to be very cautious.
“It's pretty hard working when it's windy like this,” Mr Kane said.
“You definitely can't work when it's too windy, otherwise your ropes end up getting tangled with the other guys and you can get dragged. It's too dangerous.”
