Skills Council Looks for New Chief Executive


People 1st, the Sector Skills Council for hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism, is looking for a new CEO.

The new recruit will replace interim CEO, Simon Turl whose one year secondment from Compass Group will end in November.

The new CEO will need to take forward the organisation's work representing industry to government and learning providers, helping address current and future skills issues and increasing business productivity and individuals' employability.

John Brackenbury, Chairman of People 1st, said: "We are looking for a forward-thinking, business-focused leader, who has an in-depth knowledge of the industry and the skills challenges it faces, to take People 1st forward."

People 1st's mission for the next five years is to have an impact on increased completion rates for qualifications and learning programmes, investment in training, employee skill levels, productivity levels, and reduced staff turnover through lifelong career development.
