27th August 2014 - Press Release

Further Steps Towards Community Director Appointment

In accordance with the published timetable, the panel met at the Port of Dover on 26 August to review what were acknowledged by all present to be 27 high quality applications for the recently advertised non-executive Community Director role on the Dover Harbour Board.

Chief Executive of the Port of Dover, Tim Waggott said:

“It is very encouraging that we received such a substantial response as we continue the momentum of working together with our community to deliver for Dover. I would like to personally thank everyone who has taken the time to express an interest in the role for their commitment to being part of a shared vision for the future.”

Candidates who have been shortlisted will be invited for interview on the 18 or 19 September, and will be met by the panel which includes the Leader of Dover District Council, the Deputy Mayor of Dover and the local MP.  Alongside these locally elected representatives, candidates will also meet the independent Chairs of the Port & Community Forum and Port Users Group as well as members of the Board’s own Nomination Committee and the Chair of the South East Local Enterprise Partnership.

Mr.Waggott added:

“Local elected representatives form around one third of the interview panel.  We feel the group reflects an equitable distribution of responsibility and input between locally elected representatives, independent community and customer representatives and Dover Harbour Board itself.”
