We have a number of Boards and Advisory Groups which you may be able to join. This Expression of Interest form is designed for you to let us know what valuable skills and knowledge you can bring to GBSLEP. We are particularly interested in expressions of interest from those who live or work in the nine Local Authority areas we serve; Birmingham, Solihull, Cannock Chase, Bromsgrove, Redditch, Lichfield, East Staffordshire, Wyre Forest and Tamworth.

The GBSLEP Board is proud to serve one of the most diverse city regions in Europe. Diversity is integral to the strength of our economy and GBSLEP is here to serve all communities. The LEP Board is committed to inclusivity and diversity through its membership and that of its Pillar Boards and Advisory Groups. We therefore actively encourage interest from all backgrounds, communities and industries and are committed to boards and groups that are made up of diverse skills, experience and abilities.

Equality & Diversity

Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership wants to meet the aims and commitments set out in its Diversity policy. This includes not discriminating under the Equality Act 2010, and building an accurate picture of the make-up of those who wish to work with it, in encouraging equality and diversity.

The GBSLEP needs your help and co-operation to enable it to do this, but providing this detail is voluntary.
