Apprentices go countrywide

[ May 1, 2015   //   ]

Peel Ports has launched a UK-wide apprenticeship programme and has announced plans to take on five new apprentice recruits at the Port of Liverpool.

In preparation for the opening of the £300m Liverpool2 deep-water container terminal aims to recruit 50 new apprentices within the next five years. The new scheme is its first UK-wide apprenticeship programme and apprentices will be able to gain experience of working at port operations including sites in Liverpool, Manchester, Dublin, Glasgow, Sheerness and Heysham through a structured development programme up to HND/degree level.

Peel Ports currently employs 41 apprentices across its UK and Ireland ports and terminals. The five new recruits will take the total to 46, including 29 at Liverpool.
