The Sheffield City Region LEP is the first City Region Partnership outside London to collaborate with CITB on a Joint Investment Venture.  Simon Carr, Managing Director of Henry Boot Construction Ltd and Board Member of Sheffield City Region LEP, was invited to speak at the CITB Joint Investment Event in London to give an employers’ perspective and to talk about the Sheffield City Region’s approach to joint investment.  The Sheffield City Region supports the Plan to help small business grow and ensuring the construction industry in the Sheffield City Region has the skills and labour force it requires and to ensure infrastructure development to maximise growth.

Other speakers at the event were, Skills Minister Matthew Hancock MP, William Barton, Chief Executive of the CITB and Sarah Fenton, Head of Local Strategy CITB.

“The Joint Investment Plan demonstrates the real value of public and private sector collaboration. It will provide growth in business through development of people with a wider skills base to produce real job outcomes and attract more people into the industry.
It will also help to develop a more robust supply chain through improved procurement practices which will benefit local companies and S.M.E.s”
