Communications and Marketing Director, Belfast Harbour

Ref 19030

Belfast is very much a city on the rise – brimming with energy, talent and opportunity. At Belfast Harbour, we pride ourselves on the critical role we have played, and will continue to play, in shaping Belfast’s compelling proposition as a world-leading destination in which to live, work, learn, visit and invest. We relish our heritage, as it provides an anchor from which we can seize opportunities to realise the ambitious goals within our Strategic Plan for 2019 - 2023.

Belfast Harbour is Belfast’s port authority and operates as a principal maritime gateway on the island of Ireland, consistently handling approximately 70% of Northern Ireland’s and approximately 20% of the island of Ireland’s sea borne trade and at 2,000 acres the Harbour Estate is home to more than 700 businesses. Everything we do, we do to the highest standards, and our new Communications and Marketing Director will reflect that; promoting Belfast Harbour as a strong leader and investor in the life of the city and the region.

In this newly created role, the Communications and Marketing Director will engage at the highest levels with local and national Government, political parties, the media, communities, stakeholders, customers and organisations interested in what we do. The successful candidate will advise the Board, CEO and Leadership Team on strategic issues and opportunities regarding the Harbour’s reputation, communications and corporate positioning.
