Cardiff Capital Region Business Council invites applications from visionary business leaders to direct and shape the future.

The Cardiff Capital Region is looking for visionary business leaders to become members of the CCR Business Council – bringing the acumen, energy and passion to direct, inform and shape the future of business in South East Wales.

Established three years ago, the Business Council plays a key role in working with the CCR Cabinet, the CCR Economic Growth Partnership, the Skills Partnership and other high-profile organisations to ensure that the voice of business is clearly heard, playing an integral role in contributing to the growth and prosperity of the Cardiff Capital Region.

Now more than ever, with Wales and the world facing unparalleled pressures in deeply uncertain times, it’s imperative that the Cardiff Capital Region fully engage all businesses to meet the challenges and grasp the opportunities found across the region – and the Business Council, under the new leadership of Nigel Griffifths, is embarking on the next stage of the journey to achieve exactly that.

These roles provide the opportunity to influence decisions and make a tangible difference at a key moment in the history of the region. It’s a call to action for leaders who think and do – bringing the gravitas and drive to take forward, enhance and promote regional business engagement, contributing informed ideas and facilitating meaningful contributions from businesses across the region.

If you’re a successful business leader – CEO, Director or Entrepreneur – with knowledge of or an active interest in the region’s Priority Sectors (Medtech/ Life Sciences, Fintech, Cyber, Energy, Environment, Compound Semiconductors, Creative Industries), this is the platform and the place to roll up your sleeves and get things done.

Our aim is to ensure The CCR Business Council membership reflects the diversity of the Capital Region, and as such would particularly welcome new and diverse voices with a passion for the region.

The Board must also reflect the different business communities and geographic areas across the Capital Region – and we will seek to appoint business representatives from a blend of business types and sizes.
