Appointment of the Chair of the Board of David MacBrayne Limited
Two/Three year appointment from 1 January 2020

Scottish Ministers are looking to appoint a new Chair to the
Board of David MacBrayne Limited (DML).
With over 160 years’ experience, DML is one of Scotland’s
longest continually running businesses, and one of Scotland’s
largest logistics companies. It employs around 1500 people with
an annual turnover of approximately £200 million. The current
largest subsidiary company is CalMac Ferries Limited (CFL)
which is the UK’s largest ferry operator in terms of ships and
destinations served and one of the largest transport operators
in‰Scotland.
While some knowledge and experience of the sector would be
benefi cial, the candidate does not need to come from a maritime
background. It is as likely that they will have worked in an
outsourced or major services/contracting background and will
have experience of operating across the private and
public‰sector.
An application pack and full details on this and
other public appointments can be found at
www.appointed-for-scotland.org/
The closing date for receipt of applications is 25 October 2019.
Scottish Ministers particularly welcome applicants who come
from groups currently under-represented on Scotland’s public
bodies, such as women, disabled people, ethnic minorities and
people aged under 50. Please do complete our monitoring form
when you apply as this helps us to ensure that the
appointments process is accessible to everyone.
Appointed on merit; committed to diversity and equality

and that adequate medical cover remains in place to
ensure ongoing high quality general practice at the
Argyll Street practice.
The doctors would also like to reassure everyone that
no-one will be asked to travel to The Bute Practice to
access a general practitioner or nurse, and the partners
have committed to providing a full range of services in
Dunoon.

Practice Manager, along with the existing dedicated
team of administrative and nursing staff.
