Vacancy for Chair of Bristol Airport's Consultative Committee

Bristol Airport is looking to recruit a Chair for its Airport Consultative Committee (ACC) who will also act as Chair of the airport’s Environmental Improvement Fund Committee.

The ACC is an independent committee representing stakeholders’ interests and involves being a constructive and critical friend to Bristol Airport.

It enables communities in the vicinity of the airport, local authorities, local business representatives and other interested parties to exchange information and ideas. It is independently chaired and membership compromises stakeholders from local communities, business groups and airport users. Bristol Airport’s CEO and members of the senior management team also attend the meeting.

The ACC provides an opportunity for interested parties to better understand the Airport operations and a forum for the concerns of interested parties to be raised and considered by the Airport, with a genuine desire on all sides to resolve any issues that may emerge.

An airport spokesman said it was a a unique opportunity for a strong communicator and a diplomatic person who could confidently lead a committee and objectively balance a broad range of stakeholder interests. The candidate must be able to skilfully encourage open and constructive debate. They will also be keen to develop a knowledge of current aviation issues and be able to analyse complicated, often highly technical information. It is highly likely the candidate will have held a senior professional role in the past and had previous experience of chairing other committees.
