Recruitment of independent non-executive members of the Board of Directors

July 13, 2021

Non-Executive Directors

Non-Executive Directors sought for independent boards of the Considerate Constructors Scheme and Construction Product Information.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme Ltd (CCS) is a well-respected, not-for-profit organisation with a 24-year pedigree in independent monitoring and assessment practices. It is objective and trusted, helping to achieve lasting behavioural and cultural change in the construction industry for over two decades. CCS is set-up as an independent organisation, it is not a trade association or other member-type organisation and does not represent specific interests or sub-sectors.

The CCS Board of Directors is seeking new Non-Executive Directors to replace those who have served their two terms.

In addition, CCS’s new independent, not-for-profit, sister organisation, the Construction Product Information Ltd (CPI Ltd), is seeking to appoint the organisation’s first skills-based independent Non-Executive Board of Directors.

CPI Ltd will guard and administer the new Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI) which will promote an urgent and positive culture and behaviour change in the construction product manufacturing industry. It is a direct response to Dame Judith Hackitt’s Building a Safer Future Review conducted in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

The Roles

The role of a Non-Executive Director (NED) is to work with the Chairman and Chief Executive to deliver each organisation’s vision and ensure the effective operation, development and stewardship of their strategies.

Each NED should have experience of serving on high performing boards and of providing strategic thinking and insight. As well as being an excellent and persuasive communicator you will be used to engaging a broad range of stakeholders at the very highest level of industry and government. Your personal gravitas and collaborative approach will mean that you are a credible and effective influencer, and you will leverage these exceptional skills to build strong and impactful relationships.

Experience and Skills

We are particularly keen to attract exceptional candidates from both within, as well as outside of the construction sector, (for example, aviation, chemical, rail industries) and with in-depth knowledge of one or more of the following:

  • A similar voluntary code/scheme to the CCS and CCPI, including from other sectors or industries.
  • Knowledge and/or experience of trading standards or other regulatory standards
  • Commercial background with experience of procurement, especially procurement of digital process and digital implementation.
  • Marketing and communications.
  • Assessment, audit and validation.
  • Finance.
  • Legal.
  • Culture and leadership within a related industry.
  • Digitalisation, digital innovation and data management.
