The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is inviting senior members of the GB construction industry and independent experts to be part of its Levy Strategy Committee, formerly the Levy Working Party.

A total of nine members; six employer representatives and three independent members are being sought as new representatives to help inform and deliver on the industry Levy of the future. 

The Committee will represent the views of industry across England, Scotland and Wales on the development of the 2022 Levy proposals.  Members will help inform a funding strategy that achieves a fair and sustainable outcome that works for industry.

It will assist in assessing and informing industry’s view of any proposed changes to Levy legislation in advance of making final submissions to the CITB Board and Department for Education (DfE) concerning such changes. It will also support CITB in assessing the implications of different Levy rate models against strategic business objectives.

CITB Strategy and Policy Director Steve Radley, said: “Construction is emerging from its most serious recession in a century.

“In September we will publish our 2021-2025 business plan to work with employers, government and other groups, to invest in the skills to help rebuild the industry. It’s vital that we agree the most efficient, fairest way to fund this. We need employers to get involved to help us get this right.” 

Interested candidates should have a good understanding of CITB’s objectives and priorities, and the skills and experience to assess the appropriateness of the Levy options under consideration.

Closing date for applications 15 September 2020.
