Hampshire Chamber of Commerce is seeking to strengthen its top team with a call for ‘inspirational business leaders’ to join its board.

The independent membership organisation is inviting applications for non-executive director roles to help drive its ambition and direction as the ‘voice of business’.

A key aspiration is to widen diversity of representation under the Chamber’s three-year strategic vision to ‘unlock Hampshire’s potential’.

Ross McNally, Hampshire Chamber’s chief executive and executive chairman, said: “We encourage applications from the broadest range of experiences, backgrounds, sectors and roles.

“This is all about expanding our insights and strengths as a leadership team.

“We need to ensure the voices around our table better reflect and understand the communities we serve.

“We are a network supporting a broad range of business environments but currently we are not fully representative on the board.

“While actively encouraging all applications, to improve the balance of the board we particularly seek interest from the manufacturing sectors, varied cultural and ethnic backgrounds, women in business and the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs.”

The deadline for applications for non-executive director roles is Monday July 4.

For an informal discussion about the role, contact Ross McNally at ross.mcnally@hampshirechamber.co.uk. To submit an expression of interest and a CV, email lisa.hall@hampshirechamber.co.uk.
