Construction equipment is critical to the success of the UK: all aspects of the economy rely on efficient and modern infrastructure and construction. To build the future of Britain, equipment is continually evolving and facing new and enlarged challenges - for skilled workers, for maximum productivity, and pragmatic and sustainable decarbonisation.
The UK construction plant-hire industry is the best established and most professional in the world, and is worth over £4 billion to the UK economy. The leading membership and representative body in this sector is now looking for a Chief Executive to take the position in early 2023 after the retirement of the current CEO.
The Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) has over 1,800 Members, ranging from owner operators with a single machine, right through to the largest companies in the industry, with hire fleets of thousands of machines. Together, CPA Members supply at least 85% of hired equipment to the construction industry.
To serve this industry, the Association employs a team of permanent, experienced staff based at the CPA headquarters in London but operating throughout the UK. Established for over 80 years, the Association is governed by a Council of Members, who represent plant-hire companies of all types and sizes throughout the country.
The ideal candidate for the role of Chief Executive will be a confident and confidence-inspiring leader, who can work with CPA Council and the small team of experienced staff to further develop services for Members, and help the sector to tackle market and legislative challenges.
The role offers a competitive salary plus wider benefits including life insurance, private healthcare and contributory pension.
The post offers flexible working, with presence at offices in City of London on a weekly basis, travel to meetings throughout UK, and online meetings, all as required to meet the objectives of the role.
For more information, please contact the current Chief Executive, Kevin Minton, at [email protected].
Applications should be sent to Kevin Minton ([email protected]) before 17.00 on Wednesday 28th September 2022.
First interviews will be held in London on Thursday 3rd November 2022.
