We normally advertise our apprentice vacancies in June each year to start in September/October – all apprentice opportunities are advertised on our current vacancies.   The recruitment process is challenging and you will need a minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above (or equivalent) including Maths and English to apply.  A small number of applicants who are successful in the first stages of the recruitment process are selected to attend a five day recruitment boot camp. During this bootcamp candidates learn about interview techniques, CV writing and employability skills.  The bootcamp also includes a tour of the Port as well as an opportunity to meet the managers you will be working with. All candidates who complete the bootcamp are guaranteed an interview with the Port and those candidates that are unsuccessful are supported to find alternative employment.
