Board members recruitment
The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is diversifying its board to shape the economic future of the Marches area. It is looking to recruit two new Board Members who will play a key role in helping us to drive economic growth in the area and contribute actively to the Board’s effective governance.
The LEP is seeking expressions of interest from business leaders and board level directors who will be inspirational and have the credibility to champion the Marches at a regional and national level.
Due to under–representation on the current board, we would particularly welcome expressions of interest from women business leaders/board level directors.
Interested business leaders should have knowledge or expertise in the region’s industry, ideally this will include key areas such as:
• Advanced manufacturing & engineering, including food and drink manufacturing & processing
• Renewable energy/environmental technology
• Cyber security & resilience
• Health and social care
• Retail /logistics
The LEP Board meets six times a year and the membership will be for a minimum of 2 years. All business roles are voluntary.
The Marches LEP encourages diversity to maximise achievements, good practice, innovation and impact and we welcome applications from everyone. We therefore reflect a positive action approach, under the Equality Act 2010. Appointment will be on merit alone.
Expressions of interest should be emailed along with a short biography or CV to the LEP Director, Gill Hamer at firstname.lastname@example.org by 12.00pm on Thursday 28 March 2019.
