Tilbury opens its doors to new talent

[ November 30, 2021   //   ]

The Port of Tilbury welcomed local career seekers to its recruitment day in November.

The Forth Ports-owned location has many career opportunities currently available including apprentices, straddle carrier drivers and engineers. All of these roles and more were showcased along with the skills development opportunities the business has available across the port for adults of all ages.

Many people took the opportunity to use the training simulator and have a go at moving containers virtually, while other potential candidates had the chance to visit the container terminal and undertake a ‘head for heights’ test which is an essential element for anyone thinking of a career as a straddle carrier operator working on these tall machines.

Asset and site director Paul Dale, said: “Tilbury is growing fast with lots of exciting career opportunities for people right now. Recruiting has never been so important for us as a business and also for the country as we continue to recovery from the economic impact of the global pandemic. If you are keen on a career with us, please get in touch or come along to our next event in January”

The next recruitment day takes place at the London Cruise Terminal on 25 January 2022.
