This week Shoreham Port have launched Shoreham Port Solutions, a new subsidiary company. The new company will provide high quality resources, training and expertise on a commercial basis to both Shoreham Port and other large customers across the Port estate, expanding the wide-ranging services that Shoreham Port already offer. 

As a key local economic driver, Shoreham Port has 260 years of experience at the heart of the local community and has built meaningful connections with local businesses across the operational and marine sectors. By launching their new service, Shoreham Port Solutions will meet the workforce needs of its tenants and customers by offering nearby support directly from the already trusted experts based at Shoreham Port.

Much like Shoreham Port, Shoreham Port Solutions supports the Port Skills & Safety Sector Plan and the shared ambition to raise safety standards, proactively instead of reactively. New members of the Shoreham Port Solutions team will receive the same high-quality health and safety training as members of the Shoreham Port team.

Being a Trust Port, Shoreham Port is committed to being a fair employer and creating high-quality opportunities. Therefore, Shoreham Port Solutions is proud to be one of over 600 businesses who have signed up to be a Brighton and Hove Living Wage employer. By paying the Living Wage, Shoreham Port Solutions ensure that their team feel valued and supported.

Shoreham Port Solutions is looking to grow its workforce and is employing flexible workers to meet the resource needs of its customers. Temporary Agency Workers will be working on a variety of assignments based across the Port. If you are interested in Temporary Agency Worker roles please contact shorehamportsolutions@shoreham-port.co.uk or call 01273 598178 for more information.

Tom Willis, Chief Executive commented “We are delighted to be able to launch Shoreham Port Solutions to expand our operational services and offer in-house people resources, equipment and training. This is an exciting period of change for Shoreham Port and everyone has had a part to play in making it a success. I am pleased to say that Gary Knight, Manager Operations and Training at Shoreham Port, will be utilising his knowledge and experience in his role as Management Representative for Shoreham Port Solutions.”

Tom continued “By making this change, we can pool together Shoreham Port’s existing expertise and trusted customer base to improve safety at the Port, reduce costs, and enhance the customer service levels which we are already well known for here at Shoreham.”
