CITB appoints Chairs to Nation Councils and invites applications for member vacancies

CITB has announced the appointment of the Chairs of its Nation Councils for England, Scotland and Wales, and is calling for applicants to become Council members.

Leigh Hughes, from Bouygues UK, has been reappointed Chair of the Wales Nation Council. Sharon Llewellyn, from JPR Roofing and Flooring, has been appointed Chair for the England Nation Council. Angela Forbes, from BuildForce, a social enterprise which brings ex-Forces personnel into the construction sector, has been appointed Chair for the Scotland Nation council. All three Chairs are appointed for three years.

Leigh, Angela and Sharon will work with Council members in each nation to support the CITB Board, by providing insight into industry challenges across nations, regions and sectors and acting as a sounding board for Trustees. 


CITB Chairman Peter Lauener said: “Our Nation Councils provide a vital role in making sure that CITB priorities match what industry needs so I am delighted to welcome Sharon Llewellyn and Angela Forbes, and to reappoint Leigh Hughes. They each bring a wealth of experience to the role and a passion and commitment for making sure that we have the skills we need for the construction industry.

“I would also like to thank Seamus Keogh and Maureen Douglas, the outgoing Chairs of the England and Scotland Councils. They have played a vital role in establishing the Councils and holding the CITB’s feet to the fire so that we have the right plans in place to meet the skills needs of construction employers throughout each nation.”

In addition to the new appointments, there are Nation Council member vacancies in England, Scotland and Wales. CITB is looking for senior, experienced and knowledgeable industry representative from SMEs, large employers and independent consultants who are committed to forging strong partnerships.
