Peel Ports has hired 25 full time staff to work at the Port of Liverpool as part of a local recruitment drive.

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.

Jouke Schaap, Port Director at Peel Ports Group, said: “We’re pleased to be creating a further 25 full-time jobs at the Port of Liverpool, underlining our role as a major employer in the city and a significant contributor to the local economy. We’ve invested heavily in our estate, infrastructure and staff in recent years as we cement Liverpool’s position as one of the UK’s most important ports for global trade and business growth.”
