Do you believe in the North East, its people, places and businesses?
Could your experience operating in the voluntary and community sector support our plans for economic growth in the region?
The North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) works with partners across the region and with Government to deliver the North East Strategic Economic Plan, with the ultimate aim of creating 100,000 more and better jobs between 2014 – 2024.
We are now looking for a representative from the voluntary and community sector in the North East to join the main North East LEP Board.
We’re particularly interested in people who have a clear grasp of the sector across the region and who can act as its ambassador, providing insight and expertise to deliver across the key themes and programmes in the Strategic Economic Plan. This is a newly created LEP Board Member position to further strengthen our governance and inclusivity.
The Board includes representatives from across the public, private and education sectors who advise on key decisions and use their knowledge and expertise to support the North East LEP in achieving its ambitions for the North East.
Board members are not remunerated and serve for an initial three year term. The North East LEP embraces diversity and is keen to hear from female and/or BAME candidates.
If you are interested in being considered for this role, can you provide a covering letter and CV to Helen Golightly, Chief Executive of the North East LEP by Thursday 31st October to [email protected]
