The Port of Milford Haven is Wales’ busiest port and a leading UK shipping gateway. A Trust Port with a duty to invest profit sustainably, the Port had an annual turnover of £22.1 million in 2018 and employs c. 170 people, The Port is widely recognised in the industry as the energy capital of the UK, handling c.20% of Britain’s seabourne trade in oil and gas and is the UK’s busiest port in terms of liquid bulk.
The Port operates Pembroke Port, home to South Wales’ busiest ferry terminal, handling thousands of tonnes of cargo and passengers moving between the UK and Ireland. It owns and operates Milford Fish Docks, Wales’ largest fishing port, and Milford Waterfront, a leisure facility that is continually evolving for boaters, shoppers and food lovers. The business also owns an extensive property portfolio around the port.
The Port is looking to further diversify its operations whilst ensuring that current services remain excellent. With the almost limitless resources of wave, tide and wind energy, the Port recognises the potential of the renewable energy sector, and as such, is working with a number of industry partners to deliver Pembroke Dock Marine, a world-class energy and engineering centre. The Port’s great electricity transmission infrastructure, oil and gas pipelines, and good road and rail links to the rest of the UK make it ideally placed to service an international market. The Port is committed to working with its supply chain to attract new business and it is boosting the retail, dining and leisure facilities at the Waterfront; cementing itself as a key contributor to Pembrokeshire’s tourist economy.
Guided by its core values of safety, collaboration and excellence, the Port has a clear strategy for its commercial operations and has created a new position of Commercial Director to drive forward its plans for growth and expansion.
This is a rare and excellent opportunity for a high performing Commercial Director with an opportunistic mindset to join a strategically and economically significant organisation to make a measurable impact to the activities of the Port and the prosperity of the Haven.
