Apprentices: Have you considered the ports industry as your first step into the working world?

June 11, 2018

The ports industry in the UK is growing and now is your chance to become a part of this exciting new venture.

Associated British Ports (ABP) on the Humber are now recruiting for their next tranche of engineering apprentices and with only six places available, you won’t want to miss out.

ABP is the UK’s largest port operator, owning and operating 21 ports across England, Scotland and Wales.

Closer to home, ABP also owns the four Humber ports in Grimsby, Immingham, Hull and Goole. Together, the Humber ports handle around 62 million tonnes of cargo each year and directly employs over 1,000 members of staff.

Between them, the four ports handle every conceivable type of cargo from biomass and coal to fuel power stations which keep 1 in 10 of the country’s lights on, to fertiliser which is used in the agricultural industry.

Now is your chance to become part of a close-knit and friendly company by signing up for an ABP engineering apprenticeship.

Split by the disciplines of electrical and mechanical, four successful applicants will be based at the port of Immingham and two more will be based at Hull.

The four year apprenticeship scheme will see candidates being based at The Grimsby Institute, with their specialist engineering facilities, for the entire first year.

The second year will see apprentices starting work with ABP at either the port of Immingham or Hull, under supervision and being given the opportunity to work on impressive infrastructure and giant sized kit including cranes, forklifts and tugs.
