Board Members required for Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership (Non-remunerated)

The Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership (GM LEP) is currently looking for senior business professionals to become new Members. We are seeking Members who are passionate about the region and can help shape its future.

The GM LEP sits at the heart of Greater Manchester’s governance arrangements ensuring business leaders, working with the Combined Authority, are at the heart of setting the strategic course of GM, determining local economic priorities and driving growth and job creation within the city region. As the economic climate evolves, the region is facing new and different challenges. Against this backdrop of change, you’ll help us set the LEP’s direction. With your expert business knowledge, you’ll see that we address Greater Manchester’s needs through our twin track approach of Growth and Reform. It’s a chance to take the lead in areas where you have particular expertise. With your influence and knowledge, you can make a significant impact. 

A role such as this calls for considerable Group or Board level experience. You’ll bring formidable business skills and clear insight into the Greater Manchester region. An independent thinker, you combine your knowledge with a gift for analysis. You are quick to understand issues and able to contribute to strategy. Strong communication skills mean you can express your thoughts articulately and collaborate with others.

We wish to hear from potential Members who reflect the full range of Greater Manchester’s business sectors and the diversity of its people. In particular, our Board would benefit from more representation from the health innovation, manufacturing and property sectors, but we are keen to hear from anyone with the experience outlined above.
