Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is a public body and a registered charity and sponsored by the Department for Education. CITB has a non-executive board of trustees which is responsible to the DfE for the stewardship of the organisation. As a ‘Levy In, Skills Out’ organisation, CITB raises circa £300 Million per year, mainly from industry, in order to invest in the skills of the Great Britain construction sector.
The Board has recently approved a new three-year business plan which is focused on delivering their Mission and Vision. CITB currently employ 1350 people and this number will reduce significantly over the next three years as a result of transformation where they move to a new business model. This programme of change has strong support from both industry and government. Their plans include improving their industry-wide evidence base to influence and deliver on current and future skills needs and pinpointing funding to enhance construction training and keep pace with modernisation. CITB are also collaborating with industry to improve standards and qualifications with the aim of producing work-ready employees.
As a member of the Executive team and lead, inspire, support and develop staff so that they in turn can provide excellent customer service. You will motivate colleagues to move CITB into a different way of working and to deliver on the Business Plan by bringing to life best practice, new thinking, and preserving the best of what they do.
The successful candidate will have a unique opportunity to develop a new performance framework which supports the Future CITB Business Plan and prepares the organisation as it transitions into its new, more strategic role in the British construction sector. You will lead a multi-disciplinary team of service professionals in a range of business areas including Finance; Business Planning; Performance Management; Human Resources (HR); Change; Information Technology (IT) and Business Improvement; Procurement and Contract Management; Internal Audit and Risk; and Corporate and Social Responsibility, taking overall Executive level accountability for their delivery.
As an individual you will be a confident, inspirational leader with the breadth of skills required to ensure CITB has the customer focused service required to deliver its Business Plan. The role is truly open to candidates from all sector but experience of managing a large team with corporate services is advantageous.
