Skills 4 Dover
P&O Ferries has its headquarters in Dover and operates a fleet of six ferries from Dover to Calais. The company is now recruiting for its 2017 apprenticeship scheme with opportunities for deck and engineering rating apprenticeships.
A blueprint which highlights the future skills needs for the Dover district has been released as part of the Dover Skills & Business Expo.
The report, Future Skills for Dover, identifies areas which are likely to see the biggest job creation, and helps explain the career opportunities available to local people. It was commissioned by the Dover Business Forum following a survey which saw employers highlight skills gaps as one of the leading challenges in the future.
The report takes a long term perspective, showcasing the job growth the district is likely to experience over the next 15 years.
