Lincolnshire recruits needed for European funding committee

The Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is looking for partners to deliver a £123 million European funding strategy.

The new European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) Committee will be responsible for the development of the Greater Lincolnshire European Structural and Investment Fund Strategy.

The challenges for the committee will include overseeing and developing project proposals, agreeing the investments and monitoring 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 and rural affairs.

LEP Manager, Ruth Carver, said: “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.”

The first meeting of the Greater Lincolnshire ESIF Committee will be in late November 2014.

Anyone interested in being a representative on the committee should send their CV and a covering letter highlighting relevant experience to Greater Lincolnshire LEP, City Hall, Beaumont Fee, Lincoln LN1 1DD or by email to emma.mumby@lincolnshire.gov.uk.

The deadline for applications is October 27.
