SummitSkills, the Sector Skills Council for the building services engineering sector, is seeking an independent director to join its team of board members from 1 January 2010.
SummitSkills chair Ian Livsey said the organisation was moving into the next phase of its activities.
He said: “SummitSkills consults extensively with the industry working with employers, stakeholders and other key partners across the UK to ensure that all those who work in the sector are equipped with the right skills at the right levels to enable them to be efficient and effective.
“Skills and apprenticeships have never been higher up the political agenda. The low carbon agenda and the identification of the skills needed as the sector emerges from recession are vital. The role of the Board in setting SummitSkills’ strategic direction is absolutely key.”
The commitment is approximately twelve days each year. This includes quarterly board meetings, one of which will be held in one of the devolved administration.
Interested applicants can apply online at www.summitskills.org.uk by completing the skills profile questionnaire, or by contacting company secretary, Anthony Smith.
