CITB is inviting senior members of the UK construction industry to join its three Nation Councils to help tackle industry challenges and set the direction of the skills system.
With four vacancies available – two in Scotland, one in England and one in Wales – the successful applicants will play a crucial role in improving the future of UK construction.
Mark Noonan, CITB Industry Relations Director, said: “The Nation Councils are led by industry, for industry – they are a vital connection between CITB’s Board and construction employers. Our council members offer a wealth of insight based on expert knowledge and a vested interest in construction. The Nation Councils really help to unite CITB with the industry it serves.
“I’d like to urge any senior construction industry professionals who believe they can help CITB with its efficiency and effectiveness plans to apply for one of these roles - this is a great opportunity to make a big difference.”
Last year, as part of its new governance structure, CITB created Nation Councils in Scotland, England and Wales. Council members have an important role in supporting the strategic leadership of the CITB Board by providing insight into industry challenges and acting as a sounding board for the Trustees. Up to nine council members sit within each Nation Council.
The key functions of council members are:
• To capture and articulate to the Board issues affecting or likely to affect industry over a forecast period of three years;
• Together with the other Nation Councils, assist the Board to accurately prioritise support for issues affecting industry across the UK;
• Review and advise the Board on CITB’s strategic business plan to ensure that it appropriately addresses industry opportunities, pressures and priorities as identified through CITB’s evidence base, which the Nations Councils will help to enhance;
• To make timely recommendations to the Board about matters arising that may impact on the ability of the Board to deliver the Plan.
