The CITB says the recruitment of an additional director is part of a restructuring to make it ‘a more streamlined organisation’.
The new industry relations director will lead CITB’s engagement with employers and federations across Great Britain. He or she will join an executive team of chief executive Adrian Belton, corporate performance director Sarah Beale, policy director Steve Radley and delivery & customer engagement director Carl Rhymer.
Policy director Steve Radley said: “At a time of major change, we need to work effectively with the whole industry, from the smallest firms to the biggest. This means putting even more effort into hearing employers’ views, helping them navigate the changing environment, and making clear how a modernised CITB will help them get the skills they need.
“Together with our ongoing reforms to improve our targeted funding, and get CITB support to thousands more employers, this new role will help us meet the changing needs of our industry.”
