Established in 1966 ABLE is the market leader in marine decommissioning and demolition and is now a significant land developer and port operator.

The Teesside based Able Group is focussed on tackling some of our society’s most pressing sustainability challenges and is a key strategic player in the UK’s bid to create a fourfold increase in the country’s offshore renewable energy output.

To help achieve this, Able is providing and developing new bespoke port facilities on both the River Tees and the River Humber, with the latter set to establish one of Europe’s most extensive new industrial offshore wind clusters. These activities are fully supported by Government and the Humber facility has secured Freeport Tax Site status.

The Group also remains a European market leader in the receipt and disposal of redundant oil and gas structures, achieving a c. 99%+ recycling rate at its Able Seaton Port near Hartlepool.

As a major landowner across the north of England – including one of the UK’s largest vehicle storage and distribution centres near Immingham in Humberside, the property development arm of the Group is committed to delivering environmentally friendly solutions that best serve the needs of supporting communities.

The privately owned Group can demonstrate a long and considerable track record of investment, and this is further underwritten by its overriding and passionate approach to making a positive difference in every sphere of its activities.

Due to the above, the group is continually growing, and we are currently looking for a Property Manager to join our team.
