Working with partners in the public and private sector, the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership provides support and funding to help businesses generate clean growth, create jobs, attract new opportunities and investment to the region, and develop the skills, energy and digital infrastructure we need to ensure a prosperous economy that works for everyone.

Our City Region economy is diverse – including urban and rural areas, big and small businesses across all sectors and people with rich and varied heritage. We are looking for business people who share a passion for the future of our economy and want to share their skills and experience to make a difference to the region’s prosperity by becoming a member of the LEP Board.

We want our boards to reflect the vast diversity of our City Region so we welcome applications from everyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability. We are particularly keen to hear from women and black and minority ethnic (BAME) individuals, as well as from entrepreneurs and people working in fast-growing sectors such as digital, creative and health.

“We have set ourselves an ambitious goal of delivering extraordinary sustained growth that benefits everyone who lives and works in Leeds City Region. Our achievements so far give us a firm foundation upon which to build a bright and prosperous future for our residents and businesses, but this is not job done - it is job well begun.”
