Our vision is to be a top global city region by 2030. We have the ambition. We have the opportunity. Now we need the right people to transform our aspirations into reality.
Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) is a partnership of business, public sector and further and higher education leaders with a mission to create jobs, grow the local economy and raise the quality of life for all those who live and work in our area.
Greater Birmingham is the main driver of the UK economy outside of London and a key part of the Midlands Engine. We have the highest rate of growth of any UK city region, the leading LEP area for inward investment, and our economic renaissance is being catalysed by the arrival of HS2. We have established ourselves as one of the largest professional and financial centres in the country, with major strengths in the advanced manufacturing, digital & creative, life sciences and low carbon energy industries. But we also face significant challenges: levels of unemployment and economic inactivity are above the national average, and too many people have low skill levels or no qualifications and too few people have the high skill levels that key growth sectors will demand.
