Chief Executive

Federation for Industry Sector Skills & Standards
Six Figure

The Federation for Industry Sector Skills and Standards has a brand new mission. We want to make it easier for our members to contribute to a productive and resilient UK workforce, and to consolidate a UK skills system that is recognised by government, employers and workers as best in class. Our members are groups of employers who have chosen to collaborate on skills in their sectors.

The Role

This role requires an outstanding record of achievement in corporate or external affairs, ideally gained in a board-level role within another influential membership body. While a background in Skills is not a pre-requisite for this post, you will bring relevant networks across Government, public policy and the broader influencing community and be able to use your insight to make connections quickly. You will see how a strong and vibrant UK economy depends on the availability of skills across industry and will be driven to develop and lead the Federation to play a much bigger role in shaping the future. With a sharp and intuitive understanding of how a trade body can leverage support and drive change, this is an unrivalled opportunity to make your mark.
