Small businesses are a vital part of the Humber economy, so we were one of the first LEPs to create a dedicated small business position on our Board.

The purpose of the Small Business Champion is to ensure that the needs and interests of small businesses are taken into account throughout the LEP’s decision-making. The role holder accomplishes this by drawing on his/her experience of small business, and by engaging with small businesses and their representative organisations.

As a member of the LEP Board, the Small Business Champion contributes to the Humber LEP’s strategic role, bringing business experience and ethics to influence and advise on policy.

For full details of the role you can download the Small Business Champion Role Description.
