Vacancy: Non-Executive Director
Orkney is leading the world in the development of marine renewable energy and we have an exciting opportunity that can place you right at the heart of the industry.
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) Ltd is the world’s leading centre for the evaluation, testing and demonstration of wave and tidal renewable energy technologies. It is also a world leading R&D centre working closely with industry and academia in this field. In its next phase of development EMEC will diversify into related areas of technology development and application, including storage and power networks. It will open its demonstration hydrogen production facility this summer bringing together renewable power generation and hydrogen production. Associated with this EMEC is involved in other hydrogen demonstration and research projects.
EMEC is a not for profit organisation which has received considerable government support in its creation and development. It operates as a commercial organisation with a clear focus on self-sustainability while delivering economic benefit both regionally and nationally.
The Board wish to appoint a non-executive director to strengthen the Board into the next phase of development. We are seeking applications from individuals with a proven track record in an appropriate field of engineering or R&D commercialisation. It is preferred that they have a good existing network reaching into both industry and academia and have operated at senior positions in their respective organisations.
EMEC values diversity. In light of the current composition of the Board we would particularly welcome applications from suitably qualified and experienced female candidates.
The appointment will be for a period of 3 years from 1 July 2017 with an anticipated time commitment of not less than 30 days per annum and remuneration of £14,400 per annum.
