Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership
The Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership (GM LEP) is currently looking for senior business professionals to become new Members. We are seeking Members who are passionate about the region and can help shape its future.
The GM LEP sits at the heart of Greater Manchester’s governance arrangements ensuring business leaders, working with the Combined Authority, are at the heart of setting the strategic course of GM, determining local economic priorities and driving growth and job creation within the city region. As the economic climate evolves, the region is facing new and different challenges. Against this backdrop of change, you’ll help us set the LEP’s direction. With your expert business knowledge, you’ll see that we address Greater Manchester’s needs through our twin track approach of Growth and Reform. It’s a chance to take the lead in areas where you have particular expertise. With your influence and knowledge, you can make a significant impact.
‘If there’s not enough housing, prices go up to a point where some people literally cannot afford the rent or mortgage.’
‘Traditionally, “an Englishman’s home is his castle”, right? Although people are starting to question whether it’s a home if no one is living in it.’
Yet market towns across the country have also seen a sharp rise in homelessness. But why has the safety net been removed in these places and what is being done to help?
For the last 20 years, homeless people in Leeds have been transforming derelict properties with Canopy Housing – and the best part is they get to live in them after.
People returning to the UK from prison overseas are at great risk of street homelessness and destitution.

We will be looking for someone who can demonstrate the ability to lead a wide range of teams; design, drive and deliver a diverse range of agendas and projects; and operate effectively at the most senior level of the Council including within political and partnership circles.
We’re Kirklees…Are you? We want Kirklees to be a place which combines a strong and sustainable economy with a great quality of life; a place with thriving communities, growing businesses, high prosperity, low inequality and where people enjoy better health throughout their lives.
We’ve been on a journey over the last 3 years to develop a very different organisation with new and innovative ways of doing things, better collaboration and a workforce with high standards and exceptional behaviours but there is still much more to do.
Trafford is a prosperous and sought-after place to live with excellent parks and green spaces and thriving town centres, each with their own unique identity and including the popular and lively modern market hall in Altrincham, and major cultural and leisure destinations including a dedicated arts centre, theatre and the Intu Trafford Centre – one of the UK’s largest shopping destinations. We are a key asset to the region with a place at the top table of the Northern Powerhouse – essential to Greater Manchester’s growth plans – contributing over £9.6bn to the Greater Manchester economy.
