Business Focus

In September 2009, the Employment & Skills Board made a firm commitment to becoming an employer led partnership. This resulted in:

  • A concerted effort to bring more of Nottinghamshire's employers to the table, with a target of 50% membership at the Board;
  • Developing robust labour market intelligence to inform decision making; and
  • Encouraging our employer board members to lead key areas of work.

Under the leadership of our Chair, , we have developed this thinking and ESB members now take on representative roles and champion particular areas of work such as Construction, Health & Work and partnership communications.

This has strengthened the ESB and ensures that business leadership is genuine, keeping the partnership focused on key priorities.

In 2011 we will develop the business leadership further by increasing the number of business that we engage, including through our sector work.
