Election of Trustees to Board of Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority
This is a voluntary position requiring a commitment of 1- 2 days per month.
Existing Trustees are eligible for re-election.
Appointment to Board of Trustees:
Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority, a Trust Port, is seeking applications from candidates willing to stand for appointment to the Board of Trustees. We are looking for three high quality individuals with an interest in public service to fill forthcoming vacancies. Trust Ports differ from company or local authority-owned ports by their constitution and powers. All Port activities are funded within revenue, supplemented in some cases by commercial borrowing up to prescribed limits. The Board is made up of a number of members with local or specialised interests and appointment will be for a period of three years. Successful candidates will be appointed from 1 April 2024.
Candidates should be able to demonstrate ability and a proven track record in their chosen profession or other activities, such as community work. Commitment and experience are as valuable as qualifications, although in some areas specialist experience will be an advantage. You will be required to work with senior and professional staff, so experience of achieving results through demanding board or committee work is important, as is the ability to grasp complex issues quickly and express yourself clearly. Residence within a reasonable distance of the port and familiarity with local issues in the region surrounding the port are highly desirable. The position of Trustee is non-remunerated.
Tarbert Harbour Board Objectives:
Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority is committed to the principles of public appointment on the basis of merit and aptitude with openness and transparency of process. Political activity will not be a criterion for appointment, but candidates must fully support the objectives of the Board. If you wish to be considered for appointment please write to The Harbour Master, Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority, Harbour Office, Garval Road, Tarbert PA29 6TR to request an information pack or e-mail email@example.com.
Closing date for Applications: 31 January 2024.
