Procurement Officer – Construction Focus

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.

We’re proud of our historical impact across the globe – from celebrated explorers and introducing the first passenger railway to providing the steel that built the modern world.

That legacy lives on today in the area’s rail and engineering industries, our deep-sea port and advanced manufacturing heart. Tees Valley is also a dynamic business location for digital and creative technologies, and a leading destination for process industry and new energy companies.

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.

The Tees Valley Combined Authority are looking for a procurement professional to support South Tees Development Corporation’s regeneration programme, which is the largest single regeneration opportunity in the UK and a complex major capital works undertaking across a 25-year timeframe.  The post holder will support the procurement of a wide array of services, works and goods, under public sector procurement rules, which will be essential to the programme’s success.

For the successful candidate, this role presents an opportunity to be involved in the development of only the third Mayoral Development Corporation in the UK as well as contributing to the overall development and prosperity of the Tees Valley region.
