Mr Bartley will be standing down as chair of SummitSkills - the sector skills council for the building services industry - at the end of 2008 with his successor taking office from January 2009.
A SummitSkills spokesman said: “The SummitSkills board has established a small appointments sub-group to oversee the recruitment process with a view to selecting a new chair
by June 2008, allowing ample time for the handover period.”
SummitSkills has just launched the Sector Skills Agreement for the building services industry and is co-ordinating a network of regional and national implementation groups.
Applicants are invited to write, enclosing a CV and covering letter to Anthony Smith, Company Secretary, SummitSkills Ltd, Vega House, Opal Drive, Fox Milne, Milton Keynes, MK15 0DF.
