The Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (BC LEP) provides a business-led approach to economic development for an area with over 35,000 businesses and 446,000 jobs supporting a total population of over 1.17 million people.
Our vision is to create the conditions for enterprise to flourish, by tackling the barriers to private sector growth, resulting in greater economic prosperity across the Black Country.
The BC LEP seeks expressions of interest for private sector non-executive LEP Board Members.
We are looking for individuals who can bring a depth of experience aligned to our strategic aims and able to make an active contribution to the work of the LEP, as well as demonstrate integrity and commitment. Potential Board Members should be able to take a strategic view and engage quickly with issues facing business.
New members will be appointed by a panel which will be drawn from BC LEP stakeholders.
The post is not remunerated.
The Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership encourages diversity to maximise achievements, good practice, innovation and impact and we welcome applications from everyone. Females and members of the BME community are currently under-represented on our Board and we therefore reflect a positive action approach, under the Equality Act 2010. Appointment will be on merit alone.
Closing Date for expressions of interest: 20th October 2017
