Coast to Capital has launched its new brand look and feel with a fresh and bold design which reflects the ambitions of the organisation following the publication of its strategy Gatwick 360 last year.
The refreshed brand includes a new logo, new applications and dramatic visuals which have been applied across social media.
This is an important year for Coast to Capital which will culminate in the agreement of the area’s first Local Industrial Strategy with Government. The new brand has been designed to help us communicate our ambitious vision, for the towns and cities in the Coast to Capital area to be known around the world as fantastic places to live, to grow and succeed and for the area to become the most dynamic non-city region in England, centred around a highly successful Gatwick Airport.
The strength of our relationships with our partners and stakeholders is vital to the success of Coast to Capital and we are focused on making a positive impact in order to succeed together. To help shape our Local Industrial Strategy we are recruiting a new Vice Chair and new Board Director to bring further business sector skills and expertise onto our Board. Coast to Capital is committed to creating an inclusive organisation that promotes and values diversity. Applications are welcome from senior business figures from under-represented groups and female business leaders are encouraged to apply.
We have also published our Business Plan and Delivery Plan in the new branding which sets outs our plans and budget for 2019/20. The new brand will be fully implemented when we move into new offices in Three Bridges on 1 July 2019.
Jonathan Sharrock, Coast to Capital Chief Executive said:
“I am delighted with the new branding which demonstrates that Coast to Capital is a serious partner to Government and the recognised vehicle for driving forward local economic growth and funding. We are excited for all the opportunities 2019 will bring including negotiating a strong Local Industrial Strategy to bring even more investment into the area and I look forward to working with our partners and stakeholders to maximise the impact of future opportunities.”
Tim Wates, Coast to Capital Chairman said:
“LEP Board members come from different backgrounds across the area and offer a breadth of industry knowledge and expertise. I am keen to hear from people that can build on this diversity. I invite you to bring your ideas, your skills and your ambition. If you would like to get involved, I would love to hear from you.”
The Vice Chair and Board Director posts are unremunerated and applicants are expected to live and/or work in the region. To make an application please send, by Wednesday 29 May, a full CV with a covering statement setting out how you believe you could fulfil the requirements of the key role to Hazel Nicholmann, Governance Officer at email@example.com
