Major taskforce to look into how to drive forward the Teesside economy

Associated British Ports is on the hunt for 24 new recruits to join its team at its Renewable Fuel Terminal (IRFT).

The jobs have been created at the Port of Immingham, which is the UK’s largest port by volume and has the capacity to handle more than 20 million tonnes of bulk cargo a year.

In total the ABB Humber is looking to hire 20 operative roles along with four additional assistant operations managers.

The operative role’s responsibilities will include meeting targets, cleaning the site and its equipment, achieving health and safety guidelines, as well as being trained to operate equipment.

The assistant operations managers’ responsibilities include being accountable for the health and safety of all operatives, coaching team members, and identifying team goals to evaluate team progress.

Simon Bird, ABP regional director, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to join the team, with investment flowing into the terminal and more upgrades to be finished in 2021, it really shows how great an industry the renewable sector is.”

Currently more than 100 people are employed at IRFT and the terminal is the world’s largest biomass facility and is used to support Drax Power’s biomass-fuelled units . . .
