GBSLEP is recruiting a non-executive director for young people

The Friday 2nd Dec 2016 deadline is approaching…

The Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) has just announced that it is seeking to appoint a Non-Executive Director aged 18-30 to lead on the representation of Young People.

The GBSLEP says:

The ideal person for this role must have a genuine interest in and passion for the opportunities and challenges the Greater Birmingham and Solihull area faces.

They must be committed to engaging with and driving forward the LEP’s ambitious Strategy Economic Plan.

This person will need to be responsible for representing the views of young people in the GBSLEP area, and feeding these views back to the GBSLEP board.

Young people’s views are vital to the development and delivery of our strategy since their lives will be impacted by the economic decisions made by the Board.

The closing date for applications is the 2nd December 2016.

Anita Bhalla, GBSLEP Board Director, says, “This is an incredible opportunity for an excellent natural leader to represent the young people of Greater Birmingham. We’re looking for someone who cares deeply about the future of this region and is able to contribute by putting forward their thinking, and that of the young people they will represent. The young people of Greater Birmingham are vital to the development of the region and it’s hugely important that their voice is heard. We hope this will encourage other LEPs and Business Boards to follow suit.”
