Panel member – Growing Business Fund
Voluntary – 3/4 hours per month
The Growing Business Fund is New Anglia LEP’s flagship business support programme with a proven track record of creating jobs and economic growth.
Offering grants of up to £500,000, it’s already awarded £21m to 540 businesses across Norfolk and Suffolk – creating more than 2400 new jobs and generating £114m in private investment. We’ve also won plaudits from central government on how we’ve delivered the programme – from application, through due diligence to monitoring.
To help us make the Growing Business Fund an even greater success, we’re looking to add to our team of highly experienced independent volunteers from the business community and local authorities.
As a member of our grants panel, you will attend monthly meetings to discuss written applications, sent out a week in advance. Candidates will ideally have experience in one or more of the following areas: Accountancy, Law or HR.
