Appointment to the Board of Poole Harbour Commissioners

The Appointment

Poole Harbour Commissioners are a trust port, responsible for the management of Poole Harbour, with a general duty to conserve, regulate and improve the Port and Harbour.

In accordance with the provisions of the amended Poole Harbour Revision Order 2001, 2 seats on the Board of Commissioners are scheduled for appointment for a period of 3 years, commencing on 1st November 2019.

Accordingly, Poole Harbour Commissioners are looking for high calibre individuals with an interest in public services and welcome applications from persons who consider they meet the requirements.

The Requirement

The successful candidates will be able to demonstrate ability and a proven track record in their chosen profession, or other activities relevant to the current vacancy. Residence within a reasonable distance (i.e. 50 miles) and familiarity with local issues relating to the harbour/port of Poole and the surrounding region are highly desirable. In order to ensure that the board has an appropriate balance of skills, the emphasis for these particular vacancies are based upon:

* Management of Harbours

* Shipping

* Industrial, commercial or financial matters


The Board normally meets on the last working Friday of each month. Additionally, ad hoc meetings are held, from time to time, with a variety of Stakeholder Groups, and board members are encouraged to attend as many of these as possible. An annual total commitment of around 15 days or so is thus envisaged. Commissioners will also be required to attend training seminars as considered appropriate by the Chairman. A remuneration of £7058 per annum will be payable, subject to regular attendance. Travel expenses from home to meetings within the Borough of Poole will not be paid, however, where travel is necessary outside this area (e.g. attendance of training seminars), reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Poole Harbour Commissioners are committed to the principles of public appointment on the basis of merit, aptitude, personal integrity, objectivity and honesty.

Poole Harbour Commissioners are an equal opportunity employer and welcome applications from suitably qualified persons, regardless of their sex, race, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
