Business people are being invited to join the board of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, to help steer the future of an area with an economic output worth over £45billion.
D2N2 is the private sector-led Local Enterprise Partnership of business, local authorities, skills and training providers, and community and voluntary organisations; which promotes economic growth across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
It manages over £500million in resources (via funding from the UK Government and European Union) to invest in its business growth, capital projects, infrastructure, employment promotion, social and community projects, and other services.
D2N2’s board includes experienced people from a range of sectors – and new board members from the private sector are now being sought.
Board Members’ role is to:
– use their business knowledge to give strategic advice on boosting the D2N2 LEP area’s economy;
promote LEP interests when dealing with Government and business contacts;
– help drive forward the LEP’s activities, including those around increasing jobs and business growth;
contribute to development and delivery of the area’s Local Industrial Strategy;
– champion the work of the D2N2 LEP Board to relevant partners, networks and other business organisations.
