Looking for Private Sector Members to join the Lancashire Skills and Employment Board

Creating sustainable skills and employment to drive prosperity is key to Lancashire’s future.  The Lancashire Skills and Employment Board, which is part of the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is focused on identifying skills and employment priorities across Lancashire.  We work with businesses, providers and partners to address the skills demands of Lancashire’s growing businesses and to improve the economic health and well-being of our people.

We are seeking three private sector employers to join the Lancashire Skills and Employment Board to contribute to the development of strategy and planning.  Ideally we are seeking individuals from the following three sectors:

  • Construction
  • Digital
  • Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering

The board meets six times a year, typically 8-10am on Wednesday mornings.  Ideally members will have the ability to represent their sector and have an insight into the skills and employment issues that employers in their sector are experiencing.

To put forward your interest, please email a CV and a statement of interest outlining the added value that you can bring to the board, to Sankara, Sankara.Saravanan@lancashirelep.co.uk by 5pm on Friday 26th October.
