Belfast Harbour is a leading Trust Port and Northern Ireland’s principal maritime gateway and critical economic hub for logistics, trade and tourism, serving the Northern Ireland economy and increasingly that of the Republic of Ireland.

Important strategic posts for BHC.

Minister Mallon said, “These are important strategic posts for BHC.

“The Belfast Port handles around 70% of Northern Ireland’s seaborne imports and exports and around a quarter of the entire island’s seaborne trade, moving more than 24 million tonnes of cargo per annum and receiving circa 5,800 vessels each year.

“I am firm of the belief that boards work best when their membership is drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and skills.

“The evidence points to diversity in both board composition and in decision-making being a key element of good governance.

She added, “I would, therefore, encourage anyone who considers that they meet the criteria for the posts and have a genuine desire to contribute to the work of the Port to apply.”

Time commitment

The time commitment for the post will be approximately two business days per month.

The Members will be expected to attend all Board meetings and other ad hoc meetings as required.

The remuneration is £14,716 and includes reasonable travel and subsistence costs.

The appointment will be effective from 1 April 2021 and will run for a period of up to four years.
