Solent LEP Panel Membership

We are currently seeking prominent business leaders to provide strategic advice to the LEP Board through our Marine and Maritime Steering Group or Innovation and Business Support Panel.

Click here for further information on current positions available. Please note that the current opportunity to apply will close on Thursday 28th September 2017.

The Solent LEP has identified six strategic priorities and panels have been established to take forward these strategic priorities. This includes Panels for:

  • Business Support
  • Employment and Skills
  • Innovation
  • Land, Property and Infrastructure
  • Strategic Sectors - including the Marine and Maritime Sector

Solent LEP Panels perform an important role, with oversight of the delivery of each of our priority areas of work. Whilst the specific actions of each Panel are different and bespoke for their areas, this includes a range of activities; from leading the delivery of LEP funded programmes and supporting the work of partner organisations, to providing expert advice to the LEP Board on key strategy and policy development decisions. They also provide a key monitoring function for the LEP in relation to the delivery of targets published in the Solent Strategic Economic Plan.

Each Panel has its own terms of reference, operational budget and is chaired by an independent private sector expert. Further information on each of the Solent LEP Panels is available here.

If you are interested in joining an LEP Panel, register your interest via email at richard.jones@solentlep.org.uk and we will notify you as soon as the next application process opens. Please include reference to the specific panel you are interested in when registering your interest.
