The Port of London Authority is custodian of 95 miles of the tidal Thames from Teddington Lock to the North Sea. The river is home to the UK’s second largest and fastest growing major commercial port, as well as being the country’s busiest inland waterway for passengers and freight and a centre for sport and recreation. The port contributes over £4bn to the economy and sustains over 40,000 jobs; in addition, there are over 100,000 jobs sustained by the tourism along the banks of the tidal Thames.
The PLA has responsibility for safety of navigation, for promoting use of the river and for supporting its unique marine environment. In 2016, the PLA published the Thames Vision which sets out how river use in all its forms can continue to grow over the next 20 years and is working with a huge range of stakeholder organisations to see the Vision turned into reality.
The PLA is headquartered in Gravesend, Kent and has an office in the City of London as well as operational centres in several other locations along the river.
The PLA Board currently consists of eight Non-Executive Members, one of whom is appointed as the Board Chairman, and three Executive Members (Chief Executive, Chief Harbour Master and Chief Financial Officer). Of the current eight Non-Executive Board Members, four are Department for Transport (DfT) Ministerial appointees; four are PLA appointees.
The board is looking to appoint a Non-Executive Board Member who:
- has had a successful career within global shipping or related industries;
- is highly respected within their sector;
- possesses a good network of contacts;
- ideally has operated in an international environment;
- offers substantial commercial experience;
- understands the nature of a trust port;
- is an excellent relationship builder and appreciates stakeholder management;
- and brings outstanding interpersonal and communication skills.
