Applications open for new Suffolk Business Board

Applications open for new Suffolk Business Board

Following the Chamber led round table discussions with Suffolk County Council and partners at the end of last year, the county council is now inviting applications for membership of the new Suffolk Business Board.

Suffolk County Council states it is seeking:

'Inspirational and influential local businesspeople to form the board, which will represent the local business community and will help steer the local economic strategy to create a stronger and higher-skilled economy for Suffolk. The board will meet 4-6 times a year to help shape economic strategy and priorities for Suffolk, to oversee delivery of funded programmes such as business support and skills training for Suffolk, and to work closely with partners such as district councils, neighbouring counties and national economic and trade bodies. The county council is seeking candidates who represent the diversity of Suffolk’s people and economy, whether that be sector, geography or business type.'

Board membership is a voluntary position and terms are for up to three years from the date of appointment. The Business Board will be supported by a dedicated team of council officers.

Attached is a Suffolk County Council brochure about business board membership. Information is also available on the council website here

If you would like to apply to be a board member, your expression of interest should be emailed to  by Friday 22 March, with a short biography or CV and a brief cover letter outlining your interest in the opportunity and what area(s) of expertise you feel you could bring.
