Forth Ports Kickstarts a new career

[ April 13, 2022   //   ]

Forth Ports has recruited Louise Logan as its latest operations administrator in Grangemouth under its Kickstart traineeship scheme. She took part in a paid six-month traineeship last year under the Government work programme to help out-of-work 16 to 24 year-olds improve their career prospects, by learning new skills in a real working environment.

She said: “I have learned and gained experience in a field I had not previously considered while earning a full-time wage.  I have also been in contact with my work coach from DWP throughout the programme who has checked how I am getting on.  I am really pleased to have been offered a full-time role at the Port and I am really enjoying it.”

Group HR manager Michelle Primrose added: “Forth Ports has a long and proud tradition of investing in young people including our apprenticeship programme which has trained and recruited almost a hundred apprentices across the Group, with many of those apprentices going on to have a fulfilling career in the Forth Ports business.”
