Recruitment process

Apprentice vacancies are usually advertised in June each year on the current vacancies page of our website.  Apprenticeships start in September/October.

Applicants who are successful in the first stages of the recruitment process are selected to attend a five day 'bootcamp' where they learn about interview techniques, CV writing and employability skills. The bootcamp includes a tour of the Port as well as an opportunity to meet the managers the successful apprentices would be working with. Everyone who completes the bootcamp is guaranteed an interview with the Port, and those who are unsuccessful are given support to help them find alternative employment.
