Deputy Chief Executive – Cheshire & Warrington LEP / Chief Executive – Marketing Cheshire

Cheshire and Warrington has the best performing economy in the North of England and one of the most successful and fastest growing economies in the country. It wants to go further and has ambitious plans to have a £50bn economy for Cheshire and Warrington by 2040, delivering 127,000 new homes and 120,000 new jobs. The Cheshire & Warrington LEP will be central to realising this ambition.

Our previous Deputy Chief Executive, Mark Livesey, has recently been appointed as Chief Executive of the LEP Network and therefore Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (C&WLEP) is seeking to appoint a new Deputy Chief Executive Officer to work alongside Philip Cox, the present Chief Executive.

This is a key strategic role. Working closely with Whitehall, other LEPs and local authority stakeholders, the DCEO is responsible for setting the tone and direction of all aspects of the LEP’s external engagement from ensuring that businesses get the help they need to start up, scale up and get the skills they need, through to promoting the profile of Cheshire and Warrington as a great place to work, live and do business and attract investment and people to fulfil the aims of the Strategic Economic Plan and the developing Local Industrial Strategy.
