Port is delighted to welcome their third apprentice, Daniel Ancell to the team, who has been

successfully appointed as a Workshop Fitter Apprentice. The Port is supporting Daniel on his studies in Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Competence,

which he will study at City College in Brighton. He will be learning all

aspects of mechanical and electrical engineering, and hydraulics and fabrication.

When Daniel

left school he worked for Southern Rail at Brighton station, and then started

an apprenticeship with a light vehicle company in Southwick, attending college for

one year before joining Shoreham Port. The Port will work closely with Daniel

and his college to ensure a successful completion of his apprenticeship.

Daniel was

attracted to the Port because of its reputation for job security and for being

a company that invests in their staff. The diverse plant and equipment used at

the Port was also a contributing factor, as it is a great opportunity to work

on so many different makes and models of machinery.


commented, “I would like to thank the Port for this opportunity and to enable

me to complete my apprenticeship. I am sure I will enjoy my employment and working

with all the various machinery. I look forward to learning more about the Port

as a business. My colleagues are very friendly and have made me feel very



Motterham, Shoreham Port’s Commercial & Operations Director, said “Daniel

is a very confident and motivated person; we look forward to working with him

and helping him gain lots of experience. For the last two years we have taken

on an apprentice each year, and we are very pleased to add a third to help the

local youngsters get a foot on the job ladder”.
