Non Executive Directorships

Non Executive Director, Dover Harbour Board

Location: Dover

Date Posted: 17/05/2019

Closing Date: 17/06/2019

As Europe’s busiest ferry port, Port of Dover is constantly in the spotlight.  Never more so, than now when the UK is migrating through Brexit.

Annually some 2.5m trucks, 2.2m cars and almost 12m passengers pass through the ferry port each year. On peak days up to 10,000 lorries pass through the port and around holiday periods a similar volume of tourist cars. These volumes are carried on up to 120 daily ferry movements. The Port also has a thriving cruise business – hosting c. 130 calls each year, a growing cargo business importing, among other commodities, over 30% of the UK’s consumption in bananas, and a vibrant marine leisure sector. It is a 24 x 7 business, facilitating over £120 billion in trade each year.

The Port is close to completing the main phases of a significant £250m infrastructure development in the Western Docks. Securing a return on this substantial investment is important to the continued success of the Port. The investment focus for the immediate future will be on a significant upgrading of the infrastructure in the Eastern Docks ferry port. This will be particularly challenging as it will need to be undertaken in a live operational environment. Infrastructure is the essential foundation of the Ports’ business, its effective and efficient operation is a business-critical issue.

Dover Harbour Board, having reviewed its current composition against forward strategy, is now seeking a non-executive director with extensive infrastructure experience, desirably gained in live operational environments. Candidates should have extensive experience of managing and operating infrastructure and delivering projects, ideally with a background in engineering and asset management.

The Board is responsible for the effective strategic direction and control of the business. It strives to achieve best practice in corporate governance and is committed to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability. The main governance for trust ports is enshrined in Ports Good Governance Guidance published by the Department for Transport in March 2018.  The Guidance incorporates the main principles contained within the UK Corporate Governance Code. The Board is also subject to national legislation, its own acts of parliament and Harbour Revision Orders and a variety of statutory instruments relating to the operation of ports.

Directors are usually appointed for a 3-year term but may be eligible for renewal to serve a further term. The Board meets 6 times a year with Board committees meeting 2-3 times. There are additional meetings established when the need arises and there will be 1-2 strategy days as well.

The overall time commitment expected of non-executive directors is up to 2-3 days per month and is rewarded with a fee of £26,500.  Members of the Board are expected to invest their time, effort and rigour in advance of meetings so as to consider papers. Non-executives also all play an active part in the work of Board committees and strategy groups to which topics are delegated for review and advice.

Dover Harbour Board is an active supporter of boardroom diversity. This search activity will be conducted and appointments made on merit, against objective criteria and with due regard for the benefits of diversity on the boar
