New Amenities Building at The Port of Liverpool

07 October 2021

A new amenities building for the workforce in the Container Division at The Port of Liverpool has officially opened its doors!

The opening of the new two-storey building follows on from a 66% increase in the number of operatives working at the Port of Liverpool over the past 3 years. As the workforce and business continue to grow, it became apparent the previous welfare facilities were no longer fit-for-purpose and as result, the company took the decision to make a significant investment to improve this area.

The amenities building is equipped with a range of brand new, high-quality facilities including; new shower rooms, a fully functioning canteen with access to charging points, a breakout/briefing area, male and female changing rooms, locker room and improved provisions for female port operatives.

Jennifer McGrattan, HR Business Partner for Containers said: 

We’re extremely pleased to have been able to upgrade our amenities block at The Port of Liverpool. It provides colleagues with a great place to work and ensures that they have the right facilities and a place for downtime.
