D2N2 LEP seeks two new board members

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership has begun recruitment for two new board members who can help continue the growth of our region.

Local Enterprise Partnerships play a central role in deciding local economic priorities to drive economic growth and create local jobs.

We’re looking for new members who can help to shape the economic strategy across Derby Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Our goal is to improve the productivity of our economy through inclusive growth.

Board members represent the LEP’s interests to partners and stakeholders in the private and public sectors and work collaboratively with them to deliver a shared agenda for our economy.

Elizabeth Fagan, Chair of the D2N2, said: “We’re keen to hear from business leaders with energy, creativity, and passion to help us shape and deliver our ambitions for the region.

“This is an important time for our region as we drive forward work on our Local Industrial Strategy to develop a more prosperous and lower carbon economy, which creates better skilled and higher value jobs for our future generations’

“Our board members come from different backgrounds across our region and offer a breadth of sector knowledge and expertise. I am keen to hear from people that can build on this diversity.”

Applications are welcome from across the LEP area and from all sectors of the economy to reflect our diverse business community. The deadline for applications is Monday 20th April 2020.
