The Mayor of Greater Manchester is asking the city-region's business people to put themselves forward and apply to join his Business Advisory Panel

Andy Burnham has appealed to people from businesses big and small from across Greater Manchester to apply to become part of a new panel which will look to help spark new thinking to tackle the issues faced by business in Greater Manchester.

The Mayor will invite an initial group of 10-15 people to give their views and advice on any issue affecting business in Greater Manchester. Applicants must work in a commercial or not-for-profit organisation within the boundaries of Greater Manchester. Membership will be on an individual and personal basis, that is, not in a representative capacity for any company or other organisation
