Chief Executive Officer

The Port of Milford Haven is the UK’s top energy port and Wales’ busiest port handling around 20% of Britain’s seaborne trade in oil and gas. Widely recognised in the industry as the energy capital of the UK, the Port, along with the cluster of energy-related businesses along the Waterway, is a key driver of economic activity in Pembrokeshire; attracting inward investment and supporting over 4,000 jobs. One of the most prominent on the West Coast, the Port is located in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park – the UK’s only Coastal National Park and is marked as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). It employs a workforce of c.180 and its 2017 turnover and profit before tax were c.£22.4m and £2.6m respectively.


The organisation has embarked on an exciting and transformational journey which includes delivery of two significant multi-million-pound regeneration projects: Milford Waterfront and Pembroke Dock Marine. The former aims to revitalise the marina and docks into a vibrant destination, adding to the existing mix of leisure, retail and dining businesses and boosting the economy by providing long term, sustainable jobs, whilst the latter aims to reposition Pembroke Dock as a marine renewable energy development and testing centre of excellence.

 

The Port commits to delivering value to everyone who depends on it. Guided by its core values of safety, collaboration and excellence, the Port has a clear strategy for its operations that includes targeting and securing sustainable income streams; managing and maintaining its property, land and equipment; building strong partnerships and understanding its customers.

 

This is a rare and excellent opportunity for a high performing, commercially-minded, people-led and change-oriented Chief Executive to join a strategically and economically significant organisation.
