Headhunters have been appointed to look for a successor to CBI director-general John Cridland, who is standing down from the top post.

Cridland joined the business body as a policy adviser in 1982 and has held different roles in the group, including deputy director-general, before being appointed to the top position.

A CBI spokesman said: “With John Cridland reaching the end of his tenure as director-general, the CBI has appointed headhunters Odgers to start the process of identifying a worthy successor.

“This year marks the CBI’s 50th anniversary and, with the election looming, John remains focused on ensuring the new government delivers pro-enterprise policies and championing British business at home and abroad.”
