Exceptional career opportunities
Create a new future for North of Tyne

Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland local authorities have secured a devolution deal that focuses on bringing investment, employment, educational opportunities and brighter economic prospects to the whole North of Tyne area.

The initial devolution deal means £20m worth of investment a year for the next 30 years which will provide an extra £600m for the area. It also means new powers to shape our own future and meet the needs of local people and business.

Led by an Elected Mayor, the new North of Tyne Combined Authority will manage a range of powers on housing, enterprise and innovation, economic infrastructure, skills, education and employment. Decisions will be made locally to benefit our local economy and the people who live, work, study and visit here.

Over the 30-year-period, this could create up to 10,000 new and better jobs, generate £1.1bn for our local economy and pull in a further £2.1bn in private sector investment.

This is an exciting time for the North of Tyne area and we are looking for exceptional people to join us on this momentous journey, to deliver our vision and help us promote the North of Tyne on the national and international stage.

The North of Tyne Combined Authority is a ground-breaking organisation, allowing the transfer of unprecedented new powers from central Government to the North of Tyne. We will make an ambitious contribution to the lives of local people, with a clear priority to help the communities we serve to fulfil their true potential – in all aspects of life.

The North of Tyne Combined Authority is seeking to recruit experienced Economic Advisers to help develop policy and delivery. You will have the opportunity to shape major projects and be expected to think creatively and strategically to deliver outcomes.

The successful applicant will be responsible for developing projects to support economic growth, leading relationships with businesses and other external stakeholders, providing economic research and analysis, and influencing policy development.

The role is suitable for someone with considerable experience of delivering initiatives to help promote economic growth and an excellent understanding of the shifting economic development landscape. We require significant experience of partnership working and an excellent understanding of the opportunities provided by Combined Authorities.
