Tees Valley is where five distinct boroughs come together to make one exceptional destination in which to invest, live, work and visit.
The Tees Valley Combined Authority has made huge progress since its creation over two years ago, taking on devolved responsibilities from Government for transport, infrastructure, skills, business investment, and developing local collaborations on culture, tourism and housing.
These powers are backed up by substantial funding, a ten-year plan (approved in 2019) outlines how £588million worth of spending will support the creation of 16,785 jobs and an additional £1.48billion to the area’s economic output.
The investment plan, which supports the delivery of the Combined Authority’s Strategic Economic Plan was first launched in 2017 and includes £20million for a major transformational project in each of the five local authority boroughs, and an indigenous Growth Fund of £50million to improve and revitalise towns and communities.
This role will support the administration and performance management of the Tees Valley Investment Plan. You will develop and implement systems to administer and monitor the investment programme to meet the requirements of the ‘Single Pot’ Assurance Framework agreed with government. The role will require working with a wide range of partners from multi-disciplinary backgrounds to ensure effective communication, management and delivery of projects and programmes. The role will be expected to work independently with the project leads to ensure they are aware and able to meet the financial claims and performance monitoring requirements.
We love our diverse region, the five boroughs and their unique strengths that make Tees Valley greater than the sum of its parts, where the industrial skyline impressively frames rolling green landscapes and beautiful coastlines. A place of cultural and economic growth.
