This is a jointly funded post, hosted by the North East LEP, with support from the North of Tyne Combined Authority and North East Combined Authority.

The North East LEP leads on the development and delivery of the North East Strategic Economic Plan (SEP), working closely with partners from all sectors.

The Strategy, Policy and Analysis team provides the focus for this work in the LEP Executive Team, in support of the LEP Board. Central to this work is joint working and convening of our partners to ensure that the region can be influential in priority areas of public policy. There is a strong current focus on Brexit, which will be a key current focus for the post holder, with other priorities being Industrial Strategy and future regional funding.

You will develop and co-ordinate key public policy activities focused on agreed policy themes for the region working closely with regional partners, supporting the North East LEP Board and Senior Management Team. A key priority will be to co-ordinate the response to Brexit working with the cross-sector North East Brexit Group, ensuring that the work programme agreed by the Group is delivered effectively.
