We are seeking applications from new private sector board members who will bring further commercial experience and insight to the board and help generate new ideas and who will best reflect the communities we serve across Buckinghamshire.
Applicants should be excellent communicators, demonstrate real leadership and understanding of what drives economic prosperity for an area.

Business people are being invited to join the board of the Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership (Bucks LEP) and help to help steer the future economic direction of the area, which is at the heart of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc. Bucks LEP is a business led Local Enterprise Partnership which promotes economic growth and prosperity across Buckinghamshire.
Buckinghamshire is a significant wealth generator for the UK economy, and the commitment of over £73m in Local Growth Funds is unleashing ambition and creativity across the county. This funding is enabling the delivery of new road and rail infrastructure, better skills and business opportunities and enhancing digital connectivity to support sustainable economic growth in Bucks.
We have recently published a trailblazing Local Industrial Strategy for the area outlining the strategic direction for Economic Growth in Buckinghamshire. Our Local Growth Fund investment has helped support new educational facilities at the world leading National Film and Television School, new facilities for the creative industries and construction and motor trades have been created at the Buckinghamshire College Group sites and a new centre for Entrepreneurship at the University of Buckingham. This performance resulted in the Government recognising our delivery as being ‘excellent’ for projects and programmes which contribute to the execution of our overall vision for Buckinghamshire and the Good Growth for Cities 2018 index placed Bucks LEP as the second highest performing LEP area in England.
The closing date for applications is September 13th with interviews being held in the week commencing September 16th 2019.
