About Port of London Authority

The Port of London Authority [PLA] is the statutory harbour authority for the tidal Thames, home to the UK’s biggest port and busiest inland waterway. The PLA is a self-financing Public Trust with responsibility for administering the UK's premier port, maintaining the safety of navigation throughout its limits and for the conservancy of 95 miles of the tidal River Thames.

The river is set to play a key role in the UK’s move towards a Net Zero economy and in transforming urban logistics too.

The opportunities for the future are captured in the updated Thames Vision 2050, which has themes of Trading Thames, Destination Thames and Natural Thames.  The priorities for action are safety, Net Zero transition, resilience, technological changes, access and inclusion. 

This is an exciting opportunity to join the PLA at a time of growth and transformation, with the Vision setting a clear path for future development.
