Confederation of British Industry
Director General


London
1909-085L

​The CBI ensures the competitive presence of the UK economy on the world stage. As the country's most effective and influential business organisation, it speaks for 190,000 member companies which, employing nearly 7 million people, make up about one third of the private sector-employed workforce. During this time of political and economic uncertainty, business looks to the CBI to guide and inform national debate and policy concerning the big issues of our time: Brexit, education and apprenticeships, the living wage and worker rights, innovation and digital, the rising importance of ESG and more.

Dame Carolyn Fairbairn joined the CBI as Director General in 2015 and will conclude her term during 2020. Her tenure has seen unprecedented political change and, as a non-political organisation, the CBI has played a crucial role in ensuring that businesses are represented at the highest levels nationally and internationally. Members have relied on the CBI to produce independent, peerless research and policy guidance, as well as training material and fora. Her successor will inherit a thriving organisation and a team of respected and dedicated experts.

The Director General is the public face of the CBI and a prominent national spokesperson for businesses of all scales and sectors. The successful candidate will be a gifted communicator who is able to network with FTSE 100 leaders and politicians as peers, and who can confidently deliver complex business messages to the general public. S/he will be a key contributor who shapes policy debate to support the UK economy and workforce. S/he will lead a talented team and develop and deliver a strategy that ensures that the CBI continues to provide key products and services to their diverse membership.  

The CBI is looking forward to an exciting future as it expands its membership into even more areas of the UK business community and helps to address a range of issues faced by these businesses.

CBI has retained Russell Reynolds Associates to support this appointment. For further information about the position and additional details on qualifications, requirements, terms and conditions of service and how to apply, please review the position specification via the link below.
