Shoreham Port is pleased to announce that they have started another apprenticeship scheme to help local youngsters into the work place and provide an exciting and challenging career.

Luke Walker has joined our engineering team and is starting a three year apprenticeship scheme in welding and fabrication under the supervision of our own full-time welder/fabricator Alan Duncan.  It is an extremely busy area given the diverse nature of the port and the many requirements that arise which need immediate attention.

The port will work closely with the local Northbrook college and PETA the training and Consultancy Service to get Luke qualified and certified.

After only four days in his new role Luke is already feeling like part of the team.  He said “I enjoy working in this environment and I’m glad to have the opportunity of getting valuable experience in one of the South’s busiest ports.”

Paul Johnson, Safety & Human Resources Director said, “Apprenticeships bring considerable value to organisations, employers, individuals and the economy. We realise the enormous benefits that apprenticeships create, not only in terms of a highly skilled workforce but also by boosting productivity”.
