21 June 2021

The Port of London Authority is recruiting more apprentices for long-term career opportunities on the Thames and the wider marine sector.

Responsible for the river section between Teddington and the North Sea, the PLA is recruiting three apprentices to join its marine operations and engineering teams, based in Gravesend, Kent.

PLA director of human resources Glenn Witham said: 'We want to create long-term opportunities and careers for our apprentices. They are key to the future of the PLA and the wider marine sector.'

The new recruits will join an established team of eight apprentices at the PLA.

PLA training and liaison officer Rachel De Bont added: 'Our apprentices encounter all aspects of the river, from the cargo vessels downriver at London Gateway to the recreation and sport upriver at Putney.

'These new vacancies are an exciting opportunity to start a career on the tidal Thames, supported by first class training opportunities.'

Interested applicants can apply for either one of the two marine operative apprenticeship vacancies or for the marine engineering apprenticeship by the closing date Monday 5 July. Applicants must be 18 years of age by 1 September 2021.
