We are seeking three super sharp private sector Board Members

28th July 2022

We are seeking to appoint approximately three additional Board members to join us on our journey to drive good, green growth across our region. As we move to constituting our Board and delivering on our investment strategies, now is a great time to join us.

The Thames Estuary is the UK’s biggest government-backed growth opportunity, with the potential to create £190 billion Gross Value Added and 1.3 million new jobs, and at least 1 million new homes to support this growth.

The Thames Estuary Growth Board was established to provide the dynamic leadership needed to deliver on this ambition. With a new emerging corporate structure, we focus on initiatives where a whole Estuary view is necessary. We don’t duplicate what others are doing but we get stuff done. Find out more about our work on this website.

We particularly welcome applications from people who are underrepresented at Board level.
