LEP Board Vacancies

Local Enterprise Partnerships are tasked with increasing local economic growth and productivity throughout England. To achieve that they depend on the quality and strategic direction of their executive boards, led by a senior business chair, supported by local leaders from business, local councils, and universities.  All roles are voluntary.

LEP Boards are keen to receive more applications from the BAME community, disabled leaders, and from women leaders. If you’d like to get an idea of what the role might involve, take a look at what a recent recruit, businesswoman Sara Uzzell, says about her experience on the board of the Dorset LEP.  This page features all of our current LEP Board vacancies – so keep an eye on it.

 

The Solent LEP has a balanced board of directors with a mixture of different skills and backgrounds, covering both the geography of the Solent area and key sectors.

The Solent LEP is the first LEP in the country to have established a fully elected Board of Directors and Business Directors are elected by the Solent LEPs Business Members.  Our Business Directors play a key role in developing local solutions to enhance the economic prospects within the area. They help plan, support and direct the economic growth of the Solent, and act as ambassadors for the area on a local, national and international stage.
