Operator of Poole’s commercial port Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC) is looking for five new commissioners to sit on the board of the Trust Port.

Business leader Angela Piromelli has come to the end of her term after 6 years as a Commissioner. Recommending the role, Angela said: “Being a commissioner has been one of the most rewarding and enjoyable roles I have had in my career to date. PHC has a diverse, forward thinking and highly commercial board, with 11 other members all from a variety of different backgrounds, working together to ensure the success of the Port and its stakeholders. It is a highly collaborative board, with a family feel, is inclusive and the variety of projects and topics is extremely interesting and challenging."

Equivalent to a non-executive director’s position, the opportunity is open to any individual who has an understanding of local issues, with particular skills in engineering, commercial, finance and marketing.

Jim Stewart, Chief Executive of Poole Harbour Commissioners, commented: "We are looking for Commissioners who can bring a set of skills and expertise which will strengthen the existing board. PHC is at an exciting stage and (...) we want to continue to develop the diversity of the board. It’s imperative that as guardians of the amazing asset that is Poole Harbour we are representative of our wider community and are influenced by a contemporary approach in all decisions. We welcome applicants from anyone who may have the skills relevant to a non-executive director position."

Closing date for applications is Friday, 27 August 2021, and shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in early September 2021.
