‘Sea legs not required’… That’s the candidate specification we’re secretly hoping for, as Peel Ports announce a recruitment drive for 90 new staff.
The Liverpool-based container terminal giants are looking to appoint two-thirds of the new workforce in the first three months.
Vacancies include port operators, electricians, project managers, planners, marine officers, IT staff and sales executives – as well as new roles in finance and management.
The exciting development comes as plans to construct Liverpool2 are full steam ahead, so that the port can handle more than 95 percent of the world’s largest container vessels.
Business News Daily report that the project will eventually lead to 500 new jobs being created directly – and a further 5,000 with local supply chains.
Howard Sloane, Group HR Director of Peel Ports, said that the company would like “as many recruits as possible to be from the Liverpool city region.”
“These are very exciting times at Peel Ports as we begin to recruit colleagues that will operate one of the most technologically-advanced container terminals in the UK,” he added.
“Like all successful organisations, we are looking for talented, motivated people – and we believe being part of one of the most… strategically important logistics businesses in the UK will help us to attract them.
‘Liverpool2 will revolutionise supply chains in the UK by bringing the world’s biggest ships back to Liverpool.
‘Recruiting a talented and motivated workforce will help Peel Ports create a sea change in the way we import and export goods in Britain.”
