Senior Economic Analyst (Economist)
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 Metro Mayor, and the area established one of the first Mayoral Combined Authorities (Tees Valley Combined Authority or the Combined Authority) 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 Combined 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.
The purpose of this role is to work with the Economic Strategy and Intelligence Manager in the delivery of his functions related to: appraisal and evaluation, economic modelling and the provision of economic and demographic intelligence in support of the delivery of the refreshed Strategic Economic Plan (SEP), the Industrial Strategy for the Tees Valley. The role holder will be called upon to provide economic advice and intelligence across the six themes of the SEP, including: Business Growth, Culture, Education, Employment and Skills, Place, Research, Development, Innovation and Education and Transport and Infrastructure. In addition, the role holder will also lead on the provision of demographic information to inform local authority school and housing functions.
The post holder will work closely with the Heads of Service of all six themes of the refreshed SEP for the Combined Authority and the five Tees Valley Local Authorities to ensure consistency of approach in data management and sharing. It may also be necessary to represent the Combined Authority at regional and national level.
