D2N2 is the economic heart of the East Midlands region and includes large manufacturing clusters, service and technology companies as well as a thriving rural and visitor economy.  D2N2 was one of the first Local Enterprise Partnerships to be created and was designed to be of scale and national significance. It covers the geographical area of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and the vibrant, diverse and cultural cities of Derby and Nottingham. The region has excellent transport links, by rail, road and air.  

We like to do things differently in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and stretch our ambition and creativity to achieve great things for the area, and we are committed to making a difference for people that live, work, visit and invest here.

We are currently seeking a dynamic leader for the D2N2 partnership who can inspire our partners to achieve our shared growth objectives, working alongside the newly appointed Chair of the Board, Elizabeth Fagan.

  • Bring a wealth of knowledge and intelligence to drive economic growth;
