CITB’s call to industry: make your mark as a Board Member

The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is urging influential industry representatives to apply to become a Trustee of its Board and play a crucial role in helping to determine the future of UK construction.

With three CITB Board Trustee vacancies available, the Department for Education is seeking applications from experienced and knowledgeable individuals from all over the UK.

A wide range of construction backgrounds are sought to ensure the entire industry is represented, including SMEs, large employers, independent consultants, employer federations and academics.

Mark Noonan, Industry Relations Director at CITB, said: “These are highly influential, senior roles which represent a fantastic opportunity for suitable industry stakeholders to play a direct role in shaping the future CITB. This includes influencing and directing spend where it is needed most, thinking innovatively, and to make both CITB and the industry more accountable.

“CITB is at a pivotal point in its 54 year history as it begins a crucial, industry-driven process of reform under its Vision 2020 proposals. There has never been a better time for suitable industry candidates to pledge their commitment to making the construction industry a better place in which to work.”

CITB Board Trustees are responsible for the governance, strategic direction and monitoring of business performance and are expected to have the ability to offer and communicate a progressive view of the industry’s future skills and training needs.

The CITB Board is accountable to the Secretary of State for Education, the Charity Commission and CITB’s beneficiaries. The CITB Trustees are required to operate with a high level of transparency and accountability.
