DP World advances £1.5bn London Gateway project

The Dubai port operator's decision to proceed with the £1.5 billion project was a "massive vote of confidence in the UK's economic recovery" says Gordon Brown.

DP World's London Gateway development will generate up to 36,000 jobs, the global ports operator said as Gordon Brown, the British prime minister, met with officials from the company. Mr Brown said the Dubai port operator's decision to proceed with the £1.5 billion (Dh8.94bn) project was a "massive vote of confidence in the UK's economic recovery".

DP World on Monday ended doubts about the future of the planned deep-sea container port when it announced it would press ahead with construction of infrastructure works after buying the remaining land for the project. "The London Gateway is a significant foreign investment into the UK," Mr Brown said. "It will help bring the largest deep-sea vessels here and improve the efficiency of the UK's freight distribution, creating thousands of jobs, future growth and economic prosperity."

Situated on the north bank of the River Thames in Essex, the 607-hectare site is the same size as two cities of London. It will improve deep-sea shipping access and is expected to transform the movement of freight around the UK. An independent survey commissioned by DP World said the development would create 36,000 jobs in total, including 12,000 in logistics and construction in the short term. DP World's decision to proceed with the project underlines its distance from the financial troubles of its parent company, Dubai World.

DP World is excluded from the US$22bn (Dh80.58bn) debt restructuring of state-controlled Dubai World and remains one of the conglomerate's most prized assets, operating 50 terminals in 32 countries. "When complete, London Gateway will provide the UK with modern, efficient infrastructure while reducing carbon dioxide emissions and supply chain costs," said Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, the chairman of DP World.

"By starting the major elements of construction, we ensure maximum flexibility to develop the project efficiently in line with market demand." The company estimates it will save more than 60 million heavy-goods-vehicle miles per year, the equivalent of around 2,000 lorry movements per day on the UK's roads and amounting to a reduction of 148,000 tonnes per year of carbon dioxide emissions. Containers from London Gateway could be transported via smaller ships to other ports around the UK.

10 tips for entry-level job seekers
  • Have an up-to-date, professional LinkedIn profile. If you don’t have a LinkedIn account, set one up today. Avoid poor-quality profile pictures with distracting backgrounds. Include a professional summary and begin to grow your network.
  • Keep track of the job trends in your sector through the news. Apply for job alerts at your dream organisations and the types of jobs you want – LinkedIn uses AI to share similar relevant jobs based on your selections.
  • Double check that you’ve highlighted relevant skills on your resume and LinkedIn profile.
  • For most entry-level jobs, your resume will first be filtered by an applicant tracking system for keywords. Look closely at the description of the job you are applying for and mirror the language as much as possible (while being honest and accurate about your skills and experience).
  • Keep your CV professional and in a simple format – make sure you tailor your cover letter and application to the company and role.
  • Go online and look for details on job specifications for your target position. Make a list of skills required and set yourself some learning goals to tick off all the necessary skills one by one.
  • Don’t be afraid to reach outside your immediate friends and family to other acquaintances and let them know you are looking for new opportunities.
  • Make sure you’ve set your LinkedIn profile to signal that you are “open to opportunities”. Also be sure to use LinkedIn to search for people who are still actively hiring by searching for those that have the headline “I’m hiring” or “We’re hiring” in their profile.
  • Prepare for online interviews using mock interview tools. Even before landing interviews, it can be useful to start practising.
  • Be professional and patient. Always be professional with whoever you are interacting with throughout your search process, this will be remembered. You need to be patient, dedicated and not give up on your search. Candidates need to make sure they are following up appropriately for roles they have applied.

  • Make sure you’ve set your LinkedIn profile to signal that you are “open to opportunities”. Also be sure to use LinkedIn to search for people who are still actively hiring by searching for those that have the headline “I’m hiring” or “We’re hiring” in their profile.
  • Prepare for online interviews using mock interview tools. Even before landing interviews, it can be useful to start practising.
  • Be professional and patient. Always be professional with whoever you are interacting with throughout your search process, this will be remembered. You need to be patient, dedicated and not give up on your search. Candidates need to make sure they are following up appropriately for roles they have applied.
