ENERGY HUB PROJECT MANAGER
Tees Valley Combined Authority
Location: Stockton-on-Tees

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 an experienced individual to join the North East Yorkshire and Humber (NEYH) Energy Hub to support the operation and strategic direction of the Hub to ensure it operates effectively, and develop, deliver and manage a programme of work focusing on accelerating local energy and zero carbon projects across the Hub region.

The post will play a key role in developing, coordinating and managing the delivery of energy projects and investment programmes across the 6 Hub regional areas of Tees Valley, North East LEP, Humber LEP, York & North Yorkshire LEP, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, and Sheffield City Region.

The post will play a key role in supporting the 31 Local Authorities, wider public sector bodies and stakeholders in other sectors, to develop and manage a programme of investable projects focusing primarily on local energy and zero carbon projects. The post will also be responsible for developing the Hub’s future energy programmes, including community energy, energy efficiency, heat and power networks, and power generation, and will support Local Authorities to develop a pipeline of energy projects, as well as schemes to tackle fuel poverty.

The post holder will also develop and support the large scale ‘zero carbon’ funding programmes being administered by the Hub and delivered across the Hub region, and be able to project manage and report on a broad programme.
