“I’m delighted to join the board of the ECITB at this crucial time. With the requirement to re-plumb, re-wire and re-purpose the UK’s energy system over the coming decades, the work of the ECITB is absolutely critical to successfully prepare the workforce for our new, net zero future.

I’m very much looking forward to working with the ECITB team, board colleagues and our partners to set this up for success.“
