The Port of Inverness is a progressive and vibrant driver of growth for Inverness and the Highlands, and its profile has grown considerably in recent years. The Port handles a wide range of goods and is a focal point for the renewable energy industry in the Highlands. The Port also owns considerable land assets that it will be looking to develop. Angus Mackenzie, Chairman of Inverness Harbour Trust, said “The Port’s strategic vision is bold and exciting, and to deliver it, we will require a diverse range of people who can add value with their expertise and experience.”
The Trust is looking to appoint two non-executive members to its board with effect from 1st February 2020. One trustee must have financial management experience, with the other having worked at a senior level and able to bring a broad range of experience and expertise, ideally within the maritime or leisure sectors.
Angus Mackenzie added further, “This is an exciting time in the evolution of the Port and these vacancies represent an ideal opportunity for the right candidates to help shape and deliver the Ports future ambitious growth plans.”
Both appointments are part-time, up to two days per month, and there is a minimum of six Board meetings per annum. An induction training programme is available to the appointed individuals.
