It’s a story we’re proud of but it doesn’t end there. We’re transforming our business and embracing the future.

Creating a Great Place to Work

Whether you join as an apprentice, graduate or experienced hire, We offer a vast range of roles spanning the UK, all rooted in a culture that welcomes diversity, fosters talent, encourages internal movement and progression, and places safety as our number one priority. The past year has seen a strong focus on leadership, as that is an important foundation for creating a great place to work. To further strengthen our Executive Team, we have welcomed a number of new colleagues who have brought on board fresh thinking, experience and innovation.

Championing Diversity and Inclusion

At the core of creating a great place to work is our commitment to diversity and inclusion, because we know that to feel valued, colleagues must feel empowered to speak up and share their views. We believe that a diversity of perspectives makes our business better and ultimately more resilient. ABP is the first UK port operator to launch a range of exclusive women’s personal protective equipment.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Closely linked to Beyond Zero and our focus on employee wellbeing is our commitment to providing our colleagues with opportunities to get involved in community and charity events. Our aim is to make sure that colleagues feel embedded in the fabric of local communities so that they can contribute to positive change, while enjoying themselves along the way.


We have continued to invest in training programmes so our people gain the right skills to succeed. As part of this we have expanded the number of courses offered by the ABP Academy, our internal training centre. We have also launched a programme of enhanced hiring manager recruitment training with an emphasis on how to avoid conscious and unconscious bias. Going forward, we are planning to extend this programme to include a greater number of colleagues at all levels within the organisation.
