Commissioners

The Fraserburgh Harbour Revision (Constitution) Order 2012 established the following constitution:

  • The Board consists of 12 unpaid members, one of whom is a salaried employee.
  • Board members are appointed directly by an Appointing Body through an openly advertised recruitment and interview programme.
  • Candidates are assessed using criteria established to achieve and maintain a balance of Board membership in terms of skills, experience, local knowledge, specialties and demographic balance. However, the overriding principle is to maintain a Board that is fit for the purpose of running the port as per Modern Trust Port for Scotland, Guidance for Good Governance.
  • Appointing Body, consisting of the Convenor (unless the Convenor has made an application), a person who is not a Commissioner but is nominated by the Commissioner and an independent person appointed by the Commissioners, will short-listed candidates, interview and make appointments accordingly.
