Container Division

£20,856 plus Shift Allowance

The Port of Felixstowe is Britain's biggest and busiest container port, and one of the largest in Europe. The port handles over 4 million TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) and welcomes over 4,000 ships each year, including the largest container vessels afloat today. 
Container Operations is our core business where we receive vessels and load and discharge containers. We also offer our customers excellent Rail Operations, Examination facilities and Roll-On, Roll-Off facility. 
To support the continued growth of the business we are looking to recruit a number of Port Operatives to drive our internal movement vehicles (IMV) transporting containers to different areas across the Port. As a 24hr/7 day operation we are looking to increase our resource to service the peaks and troughs we experience as a business. Please see the attached advert and job description for more information and click on the links below to have a 360 tour of the Port of Felixstowe:
