The Port of Tilbury, London’s fastest growing port is hosting a recruitment day on 29th June 2021 at the London Cruise Terminal, to showcase the fantastic career and skills development opportunities the business has available across the port for adults of all ages. The day will run from 11am until 8pm and will be opened by Forth Ports Group CEO Charles Hammond OBE.

The Port of Tilbury has been in operation for over 135 years and is a major employer of people in its local communities with many people at the port enjoying long careers. The port’s activities are wide ranging and as key workers, the port has played a vital role of ensuring that goods, medicines and food get to where they need to be throughout the pandemic. As we enter the recovery stage of the pandemic with [as the Queen highlighted in her speech recently] a clear focus on job creation and skills development, the port will play its part in the economic recovery through investment and growth.

The port has many opportunities to build a lifelong career or to develop skills for the workplace from early careers including apprenticeships; operations, engineering or in the port’s vital support areas such as finance or procurement.

Paul Dale, Asset and Site Director at The Port of Tilbury said: “We know that the impacts of the pandemic has affected job and training opportunities for many people in the community but at the Port of Tilbury we are focussed on supporting and giving people opportunities to create their own career pathways.
