Senior members of the construction industry are being invited to apply to join the Scotland Nation Council for the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).
Two vacancies are available for experienced individuals with a construction-related background to play a crucial role in improving the future of UK construction.
Ian Hughes, Partnerships Director at CITB Scotland, said: “The Nation Councils are led by industry, for industry – so they are a particularly valuable part of CITB. 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.
“We would be delighted to hear from any senior construction industry professionals who believe they can help CITB with its efficiency and effectiveness plans. We want them to become part of our Nation Council.”
Last year, as part of its new governance structure, CITB created three Nation Councils – one each for 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.
