OFFERING work experience can be a key issue for many businesses.

This week Sam Murray from Shoreham College carried out his work experience week at Shoreham Port.

Sam is in Year 10 and has a keen interest in engineering.

He was excited to learn more about the industry and engineering in ports as well as hearing about other aspects of the business.

Rhys Hutchings, senior engineering manager, said: “Sam showed great interest in the work undertaken within the engineering team and particularly that associated with the various mechanical and electrical elements that form part of the port’s critical infrastructure.”

Sam said: “The cranes felt very high, fortunately I am not too phased by heights!

“It was really interesting seeing the commercial vessels.”
