APPOINTMENTS TO THE TRUST PORT BOARD OF THE

LANCASTER PORT COMMISSION – GLASSON DOCK

 

PART TIME (TYPICALLY 2 HOURS PER MONTH)

 

The Appointments

The Lancaster Port Commission is looking for high quality individuals with an interest in public service to fill vacancies on the board of the Trust.

Trust Ports differ from company or local authority-owned ports by their constitution and powers. All port activities are funded from within revenue.  The Board is typically made up of a number of members with local or specialist interests and can include local authority personnel, port users, and members of other stakeholder groups.

The term of appointment will be 3 years and is unpaid.

The Requirements

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate ability in their chosen profession or other activities, such as community work.

Experience in, or knowledge of, one or more of the following, will be an advantage:

  • Accountancy/Finance
  • Business Management
  • Local Government
  • Health & Safety
  • Law
  • Management of Harbours/Shipping
  • Sport & Recreational Use of Harbours

 They must also demonstrate independence, as no appointments will be made to provide representational rights for specific groupings.

The Lancaster Port Commission is committed to the principles of public appointment on the basis of merit and aptitude, with openness and transparency of process.  Equal opportunity principles apply.

If you are interested in being considered for appointment, please write for an application pack to The Chief Executive, Lancaster Port Commission, West Quay, Glasson Dock, Lancaster LA2 0DB  or email helen.loxam@lancasterport.org

 The closing date for initial correspondence for this round of appointments is 10th January 2020.
