Glasgow Employer Board announces new chair
Craig Martin, Head of Human Resources at Glasgow Airport, has been appointed as the new Chair of the Glasgow Employer Board (GEB), following Patricia Rainey’s retirement.
Over the last two years the GEB has been responsible for delivering Scotland’s first Developing the Young Workforce group. DYW Glasgow aims to strengthen employer engagement in education and support more of the city’s young people in to work.
The main objectives of the Glasgow Employer Board are to:
Create and develop task forces to consider relevant areas of work relating to employment and skills
Produce employer-led responses to local and national consultations on employment and skills
Inspire business and public sector leaders to help actions in and for the benefit of the city
Craig has been a member of the GEB since 2012 and has offered support to numerous projects and initiatives.
One of the first businesses to partner with a secondary school, the partnership between Glasgow Airport and Glasgow’s only all-girls school Notre Dame, has delivered some fantastic results. Craig has also been vocal about the need to grow and develop skills and attitudes which will sustain Glasgow’s visitor and tourism sector, something close to his heart as chair of Glasgow Welcomes.
Craig said: “This is an important agenda, and one that I am delighted to be a part of.”
DYW Glasgow are entering an interesting phase of work to support GEB objectives and I am eager to take on this challenge, alongside the other members, with whom I have worked for a number of years.”
