Apprentices asked to consider the ports industry as first step into the working world

Deyarna Fawbert recently graduated from her engineering apprenticeship with ABP in Immingham

Associated British Ports (ABP) on the Humber is now recruiting for its  next tranche of engineering apprentices.

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 the 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.
