Fifty five new recruits have just joined The Bristol Port Company, which is located close to Portishead, to help the company cope with growing demand.

Twenty seven of the new recruits lined up earlier this week to have their photograph taken with Chief Executive Simon Bird.

The new recruits include 14 Apprentices as well as General Assistants, Car Trade Operatives and Warehouse Operatives.

The Bristol Port Company now employs 550 people directly with a further 7,000 jobs dependent on the port.

Chief Executive Simon Bird comments: “We have been very busy over the past year so this is the perfect time to expand our workforce.

“I am delighted to welcome this enthusiastic group of new recruits to the company.”
