Carolyn’s background in retail and experience in brand and customer proposition make her ideally suited to guide the business on to the next stage of its development.

Dear Hoyle, Chairman of The Works, commented: “It has been a privilege to chair The Works since 2014, during which time the business has undergone a significant transformation. I am very proud of the important milestones reached, such as the IPO and opening our 500th store, but more importantly, I am pleased with the journey The Works has been on more recently to make it a more agile and modern version of the business that our customers have always known and loved. The leadership team has already proven itself capable of guiding the business through the toughest of storms and despite the challenges posed by the pandemic The Works has emerged as a stronger business. I remain fully supportive of the business and its leadership and am sincerely grateful to my colleagues for their support, their continuing hard work, and their ‘can-do spirit.”

North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust – Non-Executive Directors

Non-Executive Directors - North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust

Description

This is a very exciting time for North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, with the retaining of a ‘Good’ rating following the Trust’s Care Quality Commission inspection in 2018, and the development of a number of new service offerings. The Trust operates across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham, Darlington and Teesside. We provide an Unscheduled Care service to respond to 999 calls (the emergency element of our services), and a Scheduled Care service which provides pre-planned non-emergency transport for patients in the region (our patient transport service). We also operate the NHS 111 and Integrated Urgent Care services for the region. These services enables us to seamlessly ensure that patients receive the most appropriate response for their condition. Even in the most challenging situations we strive to perform to the highest professional standards in a spirit of collaboration and teamwork. Caring for and treating more patients closer to home is at the heart of our plans, and our committed, compassionate and caring staff are critical to our success.

We are now looking to appoint two Non-Executive Directors to our Board to provide support, oversight, governance and leadership in the pursuit of our strategy. As a new Non-Executive Director, you will be joining a strong and high-performing Board comprised of individuals with a wide range of professional backgrounds and lived experience. Utilising your experience from your chosen profession, whether private, public or voluntary sector, you will bring support, challenge and independent judgement to a complex, fast-paced, regulated environment.

The successful candidate will have proven senior leadership skills and a strong commitment to the values of the NHS. Previous Non-Executive Director experience would be advantageous but is not essential – rather, the ability to challenge constructively through solid knowledge and understanding is a critical component of the role. For one of the two roles, leadership experience of a large, dispersed workforce will be critical, and for the other, either recent senior financial experience or significant financial literacy because of the management of large budgets will be important. The ability to hold others to account and delivering strategy will be important requirements for both roles.

We are committed to and actively promote equality of opportunity for all staff and applications from individuals from all areas of the community who meet the specific criteria are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage/civil partnerships. We want our Board of Directors to reflect the diversity of the population we serve and we welcome all applications, especially from under-represented groups, including people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.

The appointment is for an initial term of 3 years with a time commitment of on average 3 days per month. At the end of their term Non-Executive Directors are eligible a second term of 3 years.

You must be a resident of the North East to be eligible.

Emmerson appoints Rupert Joy to its Board as Non-Executive Director

– ISLE OF MAN, Douglas –  Emmerson Plc (LON: EML), the Moroccan-focused potash development company, today announced the appointment of  Rupert Joy to its Board as a Non-Executive Director, with immediate effect.

The appointment of Mr. Joy, who is an experienced diplomat and former Ambassador & Head of the EU Delegation to Morocco, is designed to further strengthen the Company’s national profile and networks as Emmerson advances towards the construction of Africa’s first commercial potash mine in Morocco.

“Rupert has extensive experience in one of the most senior European diplomatic posts as EU Ambassador to Morocco and we believe this will be highly valuable as we advance our Khemisset Potash Project to become the first commercial potash mine in Africa. Our project is strategically located; not only is it in close proximity to both port and road infrastructure in a regional context, but Morocco is poised to become an integrated fertiliser production hub once Khemisset commences production. Rupert’s appointment comes at an exciting time in our corporate and operational development in Morocco and I look forward to working with him as we continue to build commercial partnerships across Morocco and the wider global markets.” said CEO, Graham Clarke.

The Company also announces that Mr. Edward McDermott, a Non-Executive Director, will be stepping down from the Board, with effect from today.

About Rupert Joy

In the course of a diplomatic career of more than 25 years, Rupert Joy has served at UK diplomatic missions in Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Iraq, and as British Ambassador to Uzbekistan. He has over seven years of experience as a diplomat in Morocco, as Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy in Rabat from 2000-03 and as EU Ambassador and Head of the EU Delegation in Rabat from 2013-17. As EU Ambassador, he worked to build on Europe’s multi-faceted strategic partnership with Morocco at a senior level in a wide range of areas, with a strong focus on sustainable development. Mr. Joy has worked as an independent consultant for the past four years, providing support to UK government departments and private clients on issues relating to regional stability, investment, security, and migration in North Africa. He speaks French and Arabic.

Rupert Joy commented: “I am delighted to be joining the board of Emmerson as a Non-Executive Director at this exciting time in the Company’s development. My experience of working in Morocco as a British and EU diplomat has given me huge admiration, and affection, for the kingdom. Morocco is one of the most dynamic countries in the region and has a key role to play in building Africa’s food security. With its world-leading expertise in fertilizers and commitment to sustainable development, the kingdom is rapidly developing into an African leader in agriculture, as well as in water management and renewable energy. I look forward to supporting Emmerson in its ambition to build strong, mutually beneficial partnerships in Morocco.”

About Emmerson

Emmerson’s primary focus is on developing the Khemisset project located in Northern Morocco. The Project has a large JORC Resource Estimate (2012) of 537Mt @ 9.24% K2O and significant exploration potential with an accelerated development pathway targeting a low Capex, high margin mine. Khemisset is perfectly located to capitalize on the expected growth of African fertilizer consumption whilst also being located on the doorstep of European markets. This unique positioning means the Project will receive a premium netback price compared to existing potash producers. The need to feed the world’s rapidly increasing population is driving demand for potash and Emmerson is well placed to benefit from the opportunities this presents. The Feasibility Study released in June 2020 indicated Khemisset has the potential to be among the lowest capital cost development stage potash projects in the world and also, as a result of its location, one of the highest margin projects. This delivered outstanding economics including a post-tax NPV10 of approximately US$1.4 billion using industry expert, Argus’, price forecasts.
