Nation Council Chair vacancy: Help shape the future of construction skills in Scotland

Help shape the future of construction skills in Scotland

The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) has a Nation Council Chair vacancy for Scotland.

CITB is looking for a senior, experienced and knowledgeable industry representative who can demonstrate a consultative and collaborative approach to partnership working within the Nation Council and with the CITB Board.

The Nation Councils have an important role in supporting the CITB Board in its strategic leadership, by providing insight into industry challenges, across nations, regions and sectors and acting as a sounding board for Trustees. Applications are invited from across the sector, including SMEs, large employers, and independent consultants.  

The Nation Council Chair will help shape the future of construction as the sector begins to emerge from the shadow of the pandemic and adapt to new challenges, including Brexit and achieving Net Zero targets. They will:

  • Capture and articulate to the Board key issues affecting or likely to affect industry;
  • Assist the Board to accurately prioritise support for key issues affecting industry across Great Britain and particularly Scotland;
  • Help review and advise the Board on CITB’s Business Plan to ensure that it addresses industry opportunities, pressures and priorities;
  • Shape the Scotland Nation Plan and review performance against it; and
  • Make recommendations to the Board about extraordinary matters arising that may impact on the ability of the Board to deliver the Plan.

Interested candidates should have a wealth of senior level experience in the sector and represent the voice of industry. It is essential that the Chair has a sound knowledge and understanding of both Scottish and the wider construction landscape.

CITB Policy Director Stephen Radley said:

“The role of Nation Council Chair is challenging and incredibly rewarding and represents the perfect opportunity for someone with industry insight and an understanding of the challenges facing the sector to make their mark. To fill the shoes of our current Chair will be no easy task but we know the construction industry is full of incredibly talented people who I know will rise to the task.”

CITB is also recruiting independent members of its Audit and Risk, and Industry Funding committees.
