Job Opportunity; Dublin Port Company – Harbour Master

Posted: June 8, 2016

 

 

Applications are invited for the position of Harbour Master

The Company

Dublin Port Company is a self-financing, private limited company, wholly owned by the State and reporting to the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport.  It is the largest port on the island of Ireland and, in 2015, had a record cargo throughput of 32.8m gross tonnes.  In addition, Dublin Port is a major passenger hub with two million passengers passing through each year on both ferries and cruise ships.  By international standards, Dublin is a very busy port with over 15,000 ship movements annually.

Dublin Port Company has responsibility for a harbour area extending over Dublin Bay and additional responsibility for a still wider pilotage district including Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

The Company provides port infrastructure operated by private sector companies operating in competitive markets.  The Port has a ten kilometre  entrance channel, more than seven kilometers of berths (quay walls and jetties), a fleet of port craft (including pilot boats and tugs), eight ramps for Ro-Ro operations and a land area of 260 hectares.

The Port is situated at the heart of Dublin Bay and is immediately adjacent to protected environmental sites of national and international importance.  It is also bounded by residential and commercial areas.

The Company’s business is growing rapidly and the Port is being developed on the basis of the Masterplan 2012 to 2040.  The first major Masterplan project, the Alexandra Basin Redevelopment (ABR) Project, is currently being constructed.  As part of this project, the Port’s ruling depth will be increased to -10.0m CD and more than three kilometres of berths will be constructed or reconstructed to provide capacity for longer and deeper ships.

The Position

The position of Harbour Master is key in the safe and efficient management of the Port.  The Harbour Master is a member of the Executive Management Team, reporting to the Chief Executive.  The Harbour Master’s primary operational responsibilities  are to ensure the Port’s marine activities operate safely and efficiently.

The Harbour Master has direct managerial responsibility for operations in a number of key areas including pilotage, towage, berth allocation and  VTS.  Given the location of Dublin Port, the Harbour Master also has a wider responsibility for leisure and other craft in Dublin Bay and in the River Liffey.

The role requires an in-depth understanding of ship operations in all modes including Ro-Ro passenger and freight ferries; container ships; bulk carriers of all types; oil tankers; and cruise ships.

The Harbour Master is responsible for all aspects of the operations of the Port’s Harbour Function including the management of a skilled staff of 60 and the management of a large financial budget.

 

The Person

To qualify for consideration, candidates must have a valid STCW II/2 Certificate of Competency as Master, (unlimited) valid for service in the Irish Mercantile Marine. Candidates should have at least three years seagoing experience as Master or Chief Officer of a merchant vessel and/or three years experience as a Harbour Master, Deputy Harbour Master or Assistant Harbour Master in a comparable port.

The successful candidate will have to demonstrate the required high level of expertise in the operational dimensions of the role; the ability to motivate and manage a skilled workforce operating around the clock on every day in the year; financial and commercial acumen in respect of both the Company’s business and that of our customers; the ability to develop and maintain relationships with a wide range of stakeholders both nationally and internationally and the ability to communicate clearly and authoritatively both verbally and in writing.

 

To apply please send full personal, career and current remuneration details to:

 

Mr. Pat Ward

Head of Corporate Services,

Dublin Port Company,
