Senior Economic Analyst
We are at the forefront of northern growth, and a flagship for successful devolution.
In May of 2017, residents in Tees Valley voted to elect their first Mayor, and the area established one of the first Mayoral Combined Authorities in the country. This gives us access to newly devolved powers and resources from Central Government, to drive forward an ambitious agenda that can increase economic growth and prosperity across the region.
The Tees Valley covers five local authorities – Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar & Cleveland – with a combined population of 660,000.
The Authority incorporates the highly successful Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership, and sustains strong links with the local business community and other partners. Together, we aim to create 25,000 jobs and £2.8bn extra growth by 2026.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the Combined Authority team. We are recruiting a Senior Economic Analyst (Economist) to deputise for the Economic Strategy and Intelligence Manager in the delivery of their functions related to: appraisal and evaluation, economic modelling and the provision of economic intelligence. In addition, the role holder will act as the operational lead for developing, managing and maintaining demographic intelligence and population projections that support Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) and its partners, particularly with regard to the development of the Strategic Economic Plan, the Industrial Strategy for the Tees Valley, local authority schools and housing functions and other key work programmes and strategies.
You will have demonstrable experience of appraisal, evaluation, preparation of economic analysis and demographics from either Central Government, Local Government or the private sector, and a proven track record of establishing successful working relationships across public and private sectors.
