Over the last six months, trade through Shoreham Port has continued to increase, with signs that the local economy is beginning to pick up. 2014 has also started briskly, with January and February both being exceptionally busy . As an example, within the Operations Division some 16 ships carrying a range of different cargoes including timber, steel, aggregates, woodchip, steel pipes and blocks, totalling 30,000 tonnes, have been handled over a two week period.
With growing demand for new cargoes and ship calls continuing to rise Shoreham Port are looking to expand their skilled stevedoring team to accommodate the increasing number of vessels.
Shoreham Port are currently recruiting for three dockworkers who will be involved in the loading and unloading of cargoes, driving the Ports modern fleet of forklifts and cranes as smoothly and efficiently as possible. The Port is looking for highly motivated individuals who are willing to be trained on all types of plant and machinery. Previous dock/warehouse experience including forklift, plant and crane would be desirable but not essential. Flexibility is key as the port works long hours and over weekends.
Alan Motterham, Commercial/Operations Director at Shoreham Port commented “This is an exciting time to join Shoreham Port with a variety of new cargoes entering the Port each month. With a busy year ahead, we look forward to expanding our team and continuing to deliver the highest levels of service to our customers.”
