Enterprise North Canterbury (ENC) is seeking two new voluntary trustees to join its board.  

Enterprise North Canterbury is a Trust established by Waimakariri and Hurunui District Councils with the vision to inspire, attract and retain individuals, businesses and social enterprises to invest in our region. North Canterbury is one of the fastest growing regions in the country, supported by a robust and growing economy.

The Trust, which comprises up to nine voluntary trustees and nine staff and contractors, takes an innovative and proactive approach to ensure it is a leader and facilitator of economic and tourism development within the region. The Board has been very successful in developing a range of strategic responses to support existing businesses to grow and prosper, attract and inspire businesses, Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu and Government to invest in our region and foster visitor and event opportunities and promote development in the region.

Two vacancies have arisen so the Councils are seeking expressions of interest from people who:

  • Have a significant interest as an owner or manager in a business located in the region,
  • Represent a major business sector of the region, namely agriculture, manufacturing, retail, tourism, and professional services, and
  • Have the capability to espouse a vision or strategic direction for that part of the region's economy that they are engaged in.

It is desirable that candidates have previous experience as a director or have held similar governance roles and can commit to a minimum term of three years.
