Key Personnel

Commissioners

Fraserburgh Harbour is a trust port which is an independent statutory body created by its own legislation and is responsible for holding, managing, maintaining and developing the Port of Fraserburgh. All profits are reinvested into the port.

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

  1. The Board consists of 12 unpaid members, one of whom is a salaried employee
  2. Board members are appointed directly by an Appointing Body through an openly advertised recruitment and interview programme. 
  3. 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
  4. 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 

A full copy of The Fraserburgh Harbour Revision (Constitution) Order 2012 is available on the “downloadable PDFs” section of the website.
