The joint board Authority is funded by Hull City Council, North Lincolnshire Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council and has one of the largest geographical areas set in beautiful East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.

The expanding and thriving Humber port facilities form the largest ports complex in the UK. Port health has seldom had a higher profile and the work is both challenging and rewarding.

Excellent communication and IT skills are crucial as the role will involve interacting with a wide range of stakeholders and the use of import specific IT systems.

A full driving licence and access to a car is essential as travel around the Authority’s area of jurisdiction on both the North and South banks of the Humber will be required.
