JCT seeks new chair

The Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT), the UK’s premier contract writing body for the construction industry, is looking for a new chair of the JCT Board and Council from March 2021, for a three-year term.

JCT is seeking an individual with experience of chairing board meetings comprising various interest groups, with the ability to overcome challenges and to facilitate and achieve collaboration and consensus.

The chair’s role is an opportunity to be at the head of an organisation with a unique span of influence across the industry, with a membership that includes private and public employers, professional bodies, contractors, and sub-contractors.

Applications are welcomed from candidates who have been at a senior level within their profession for a number of years and have been recognised for their contribution in terms of leadership, innovation, or achievement in a particular field.

In this period of major change, knowledge and experience of the structure and operation of the construction industry is desirable.

In the role as an ambassador for JCT to government and the wider industry, the JCT chair will contribute to representing and raising the profile of JCT nationally and internationally.

Interested candidates can view a full description of the role and its requirements, as well as find out how to apply, at corporate.jctltd.co.uk/jct-chair.

Applications are open until 1st September 2020, with interviews being held throughout October.
