York, North Yorkshire and East Riding is an ambitious region benefitting from multi-billion investment and a strong growing economy. With a vibrant mix of the stunning Yorkshire Coast, two National Parks and the world renowned city of York, we have a strong, growing economy and are ideally placed to take advantage of many new opportunities.
Following six successful years in which they have attracted over £250m public sector investment, provided the economic support to deliver the largest private sector investment in the Northern Powerhouse, and secured the UKs most iconic enterprise zone in York Central, the York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) are seeking a new Chair for its next phase of development.
Building on existing success and strong relationships with both local and national politicians, the Chair will lead the development of new opportunities as the UK exits EU, positioning the region to secure new investment and delivering private sector led growth and jobs.
For further information around the work and success of the LEP please either contact the Chief Operating Officer, James Farrar on 07791 885965 or visit www.businessinspiredgrowth.com.
This is a pro bono appointment and the time commitment can be tailored to suit the diary of a business leader.
