The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) is looking for a Non-Executive Director (NED) to contribute to new ideas and help them achieve their vision to be the world’s best maritime safety organisation.
Could you help to make MCA the best maritime safety organisation in the world? MCA are looking for someone with a proven ability in people and change management to join their board. MCA highly prize the breadth of experience and support that their Non-Executive Directors bring. This is an excellent opportunity to use your skills in corporate and personal guidance to bring a fresh perspective to the challenges that the MCA face.
Michael Parker, MCA Non-Executive Chairman
Talking about this exciting opportunity, Michael Parker, MCA Non-Executive Chairman said:
“The MCA are at an interesting point in time, especially with its links to the Government’s Maritime Growth Study, the growth of the UK Flag and other development opportunities.
“We would like our new Non-Executive Director to bring a wealth of change management experience to help make the most of these challenges. This is also a great opportunity, in the current political climate, to help us and the government make Brexit a success within our business. These are exciting times”
Alex Jablonowski, former Non-Executive Director
Talking about his experience as a NED at MCA, Alex Jablonowski said:
“The MCA is a fascinating place to be an NED. It is an organisation in mid flight through a major transformation - safeguarding the coast and ports, running major search and rescue operations and responsible for regulating and inspecting ships of all kinds.
“Every board brings new and different challenges and it is particularly rewarding to us that this is a world class, professional operation with a relentless focus on safer, cleaner seas and saving lives.
“NEDs are required to give real input and exercise wise judgement on a wide range of issues including change management, IT, maritime policy, health and safety, HR, and major contract management. And there are interesting MCA locations to inspect, from Falmouth to Stornoway”.
This is your opportunity to make a real impact on a vital and hugely respected organisation. If you share MCA’s vision and you have the knowledge and passion to deliver in this role, please apply today.
