A BOOST in businesses has opened the doors to a new career for three young apprentices who are the latest to join the team at Shoreham Port.

Owen Fieldus, 16, Jed Turner, 19, and Daevid Ross, 24, will all be joining the engineering team at the port – which in recent months has seen a boom in trade.

Owen will be undertaking a mechanical engineering apprenticeship at Northbrook College, while Jed is starting an apprenticeship in electrical installation at City College. Daevid is embarking on a maintenance operations apprenticeship, also with City College.

Carl Aichroth, engineering manager (civils) at the port, said: “We are delighted to have taken on three new apprentices within the engineering department, they will work across all areas of engineering; becoming great assets to our growing team.”

Likewise, Gary O’Neill, engineering manager (Mechanical and Electrical) said he was ‘pleased’ to be able to pass on his expertise to a new generation of engineers.

All three of the new apprentices admitted they were excited by their newfound roles, with Owen saying: “I am really grateful for the opportunity to work at the port and am eager to get started.”
