Non-Executive Chair

In by Marianna Kisandraki

Portobello Business Centre Seeks New Chair for an Award-Winning Enterprise Agency which has Sustained Businesses Through the Grenfell Disaster and Covid-19 Crises.

The search is on for a new Chair for the Portobello Business Centre (PBC) who can help lead this BEIS approved and national award-winning Enterprise Agency and shape the important work that it delivers.

A new Chair could come from a range of backgrounds: relevant business skills and experience, particularly with start-ups, are important criteria and he/she needs to be fully conversant with the fast-moving digital economy and markets. While seeking to widen the amount of pan London work it undertakes through membership of the Business For London (B4L) consortium, the vast bulk of PBC work to date has been in West Central London (Kensington & Chelsea, North Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham). With large scale local developments imminent in areas like Earls Court, Kensal, and Old Oak Common offering supply chain opportunities, it is likely the focus of PBC’s work will remain there.

Accordingly, applicants who have connections with this area, as residents or who are involved in business and links and networks there would be particularly well placed to take on the role of Chair.

Application is via CV and covering letter sent to Clarity, our Executive Search consultants to katie@claritysearch.co.uk.

The closing date for applications is 4th September 2020.
