What you’ll be working on

Working in our Investment Development Team offers so many opportunities to spearhead innovative approaches to public sector activity, including the two new Mayoral Development Corporations in Hartlepool and Middlesbrough and the emerging Tees Valley Investment Zone.

Mayoral Development Corporations

Our Mayoral Development Corporations have been formed with the overarching goal to transform Hartlepool and Middlesbrough, through driving investment and cutting red tape for planning. Our focus is town centre regeneration, encouraging businesses back into the centre, reducing shop vacancy rates, building new, high-quality housing, creating thousands of jobs and making our towns places where people will aspire to live, work and play. 

Investment Zones

The game-changing £160million Investment Zone is set to supercharge the region’s digital and creative technology strengths even further with investment in infrastructure, skills and workforce development, business support, planning and research and innovation. It’s set to create more than 2,000 jobs and, potentially, unlock £175million of investment in the next decade.   

Who you’ll be working with 

We are a friendly, productive team working in a fast-paced environment on a diverse work programme. It’s our role to provide Economic Intelligence, Policy Development and Programme & Project Development. It is a busy time as we work to strengthen the evidence base, work with government to influence and translate national policy to meet local need and work with the public and private sector to develop and secure investment for projects that will deliver our ambitions.
