Commissioners and Committees


Falmouth Harbour Commissioners is a Trust Port with responsibility for the management and maintenance of an extensive Harbour Area comprising a large part of Falmouth Bay, the southern part of the Carrick Roads and part of Falmouth Inner Harbour.

Falmouth Harbour Commissioners have a small and dynamic Board which has strategic oversight of a wide range of activities, which are vital to the safe management and economic prosperity of the Port of Falmouth. The Board membership is constantly rotating, which ensures that we continue to benefit from new ideas and attitudes.

We have two vacancies for Board Members commencing 1st January 2019. Appointments are for a three-year term, which may be followed by a second term, subject to Board approval.

Being a Falmouth Harbour Commissioner is a demanding role, which requires dedication and commitment. The Board operates transparently and accountably and is regularly subjected to scrutiny by its stakeholders and the media.  The role of the Organisation is wide and includes exercising statutory powers and meeting statutory duties.  In addition, FHC operates two service arms providing marine leisure facilities and pilotage services.

The Board is selected to provide a broad mix of strategic skills appropriate to the roles that we undertake and it is likely that the successful candidates will have experience as a director or senior manager. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who have relevant experience in either the management of Quality Health Safety and Environment (QHSE) preferably in a marine field or of Financial Management related to the operation of a multi-faceted business.

The post requires approximately two days’ work per month and is remunerated.
