The Solent Cluster is recruiting independent industry experts to join its board in the voluntary positions of non-executive directors.

Established in 2022 and with more than 130 member organisations, The Solent Cluster sees industry leaders, global organisations, universities and local government working together towards a lower carbon future.

It’s currently welcoming applications from those who’ll ‘bring drive and passion to champion the decarbonisation of the local economy and the area’s long-term economic success’.

Anne-Marie Mountifield, chair of The Solent Cluster, said: “The cluster has brought together a collaboration of innovative and diverse members with a shared ambition which will benefit our region for many years to come.

“We’ve made great progress in a short time, including a successful bid to the national Local Industrial Decarbonisation Plan competition to deliver a project which is now underway – supporting manufacturers to develop plans for a low-carbon future and establish a roadmap for a lower carbon Solent.

“This is an exciting time to join the board, and really a one-off opportunity to influence our area’s future as a globally leading economy for low carbon investment, creating new employment opportunities and making a major contribution in the UK’s move to net zero.”

The Solent Cluster is keen to ensure a voice for SME businesses in the region and is looking for at least one of the vacancies to be filled by an individual from the local SME business community.

A good candidate would bring knowledge, understanding and a demonstrable commitment to leading and delivering lower carbon solutions and opportunities in cleaner energy technologies.

The deadline for applications is 11.59pm on Monday 1 July.

Further information, including role profile and details of how to apply, is available here.
