The next tranche of engineering apprentices is being sought by Associated British Ports.
The operator of the four Humber complexes is seeking six future stars to join the 1,000 strong team in Grimsby, Immingham, Hull and Goole.
Between them, the four ports handle every conceivable type of cargo from biomass and coal to fuel power stations which keep one in 10 of the country’s lights on, to fertiliser which is used in the agricultural industry. In total it weighs a staggering 62 million tonnes.
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 Grimsby Institute, with the 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.
Candidates are encouraged to apply before Wednesday, June 20.
