Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire councils are seeking to appoint a Chair and Deputy Chair to the new Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The creation of the Hull and East Yorkshire LEP heralds a new era for the local business community, providing a unique opportunity to collaborate and build on the strong and enduring relationship between Hull and East Riding councils, raising the profile of the area and its importance internationally as well as nationally and regionally, as it responds to the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, emerging with a strong and resilient economy that is not defined by the current crisis.
This comes at a challenging time, but provides the opportunity help drive the economic recovery and future growth of the area. It therefore needs strong and visible leadership from someone who understands the area and who wants to make a difference, who can bring people together to collaborate and who is willing to get out to find out from businesses what they need.
The new LEP will be live from 1 April 2021 and will need to move forward at a pace, the LEP will need a Chair and a Deputy Chair to lead a strong and diverse board of local business leaders, public and third sectors to deliver on the LEP’s agenda.
