The Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership is looking for partners to join a new committee responsible for delivering a vital European funding strategy.
The European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) Committee will be responsible for the development and delivery of the £123m Greater Lincolnshire European Structural and Investment Fund Strategy.
One of the challenges for the committee will be to oversee and develop a good pipeline of project proposals that meet these requirements, agree the investments and monitor performance against contracted targets.
Committee members are expected be drawn from a number of bodies, including the LEP, local authorities, business, the voluntary sector, environment, trades unions, education, rural affairs and others.
“This vitally important committee will be responsible for the strategic development and delivery of the Greater Lincolnshire’s ESIF strategy and programme,” said LEP Manager Ruth Carver.
“The committee will ensure that local strategic aims are considered alongside national strategic and operational objectives and that our activity is compliant with EU funding regulations.
“This is a unique opportunity to support Greater Lincolnshire’s future growth. The role of the committee member will be vital to the future success of the LEP, the EU programme and the area as a whole.”
It is anticipated that the first meeting of the Greater Lincolnshire ESIF Committee will be in late November 2014.
If you are interested in being a representative on the committee please send your CV and a covering letter highlighting your relevant experience.
Committee members will be supported by officers, specialist sub-groups and the Managing Authority representatives regarding local sector-specific issues and European regulations.
