The Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Enterprise Partnership is an organisation set up by the Government to help create more jobs and a stronger, more vibrant economy across the entire county and city. It is made up of business leaders and councils and has just completed a long-term plan to boost business growth in our area.
The main aim is to create 50,000 jobs across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire over the next decade. A new chairman has just taken over the leadership of the LEP. David Frost was the former chairman of the British Chambers of Commerce.
David explains his role, and how the LEP will make a difference in Staffordshire, in the video below.
