Does this Kiwi have the scariest job in the country?

Headlines 02/07/2018

Henry McKenna's office is 328m above Auckland City on top of the Sky Tower.  has worked on the Sky Tower for four-and-a-half years. 

From up on top of the Sky Tower you can see the Bombay Hills on a clear day, and if you were to fall you wouldn't hit the ground for eight seconds, ouch. 

It's a view very few New Zealanders get to see. Henry McKenna is one of them, one of five riggers who work for Sky City. They clean the windows, check the weather stations and every New Year's Eve the team secure the fireworks which will be launched out over Auckland's CBD from the 61st floor, 220m up, on the roof of the Sky Deck.

McKenna has worked on Sky Tower for four-and-a-half years. His role is a departure from his previous job in a factory putting a protective coating on aluminium.

I needed to challenge myself and take on a new journey, so I saw this job, applied, four-and-a-half years later I'm here loving it.

He's part of an exclusive club, privy to one of the best views in the country.

Once you're standing on top of the tallest man-made structure in the southern hemisphere, it's just an amazing experience and a memory you'll never forget.

The riggers who work at the top are so high, they can look down on the blades of helicopters hovering over Auckland city.

You get used to it, but in the back of your mind you always have a respect for heights and your work surroundings,
