Peel Ports has hired 25 full time staff to work at the Port of Liverpool as part of a local recruitment drive.
Peel Ports Group is the UK’s second largest port group, owning and operating seven of the UK’s most important ports (Liverpool, Heysham, Manchester Ship Canal, Medway (Sheerness / Chatham), Clydeport, Ardrossan and Great Yarmouth).
Ten staff started at the port in May, with additional groups due to start work throughout June and July.
All new staff will be employed on a full time and permanent basis. The new employees will be initially trained as a port operatives, with the expectation many will progress into specialised roles at the port including tug drivers and gantry crane operators.
