The Department for Transport is looking to nominate an outstanding individual to join the Trinity House Lighthouse Board and help lead a highly successful and complex organisation.
Trinity House is a world leader in the provision of aids to navigation and is the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar. Providing nearly 600 aids to navigation, the service uses new technology to deliver a leading-edge service for the 21st century and beyond.
This is a unique role within an equally unique organisation. Trinity House is a venerable corporation with an ancient history and an exciting future. The Lighthouse Board operates under the overall direction of the Court of Trinity House that has delegated the responsibility for the provision of a reliable, efficient and cost effective aids to navigation service for the benefit and safety of all mariners.
This non-executive director role provides an exciting opportunity to contribute towards the strategic direction of the organisation as it strives to build further on its success in maintaining the high levels of safety at sea that are critical to the mariner.
We are seeking a highly experienced leader who has achieved senior level/director status in their chosen profession, gained in the context of either the marine or engineering industries.
We are particularly interested to hear from applicants who can assist the Lighthouse Board in the management of major projects: ideally in the context of working with central government or HM Treasury processes. Previous non-executive experience would be advantageous.
The work of Trinity House and that of the General Lighthouse Authorities for Scotland and Ireland is co-ordinated by a Joint Strategic Board to provide leadership and strategic planning across all three General Lighthouse Authorities. The post-holder will be required to support the work of the Joint Strategic Board.
If you think you have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to make a positive and influential contribution to Trinity House then please access our recruitment page at https://www.trinityhouse.co.uk/vacancies for further information and details on how to apply.
