ACTIVE TRAVEL PROGRAMME OFFICER
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 in 2016, 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.

We have an exciting opportunity for an Active Travel Programme Officer to join the Transport & Infrastructure Team. This is a new role and we need someone to shape and deliver an Active Travel Programme across multiple delivery partners in support of the Tees Valley Strategic Transport Plan objectives and Integrated Transport Programme. The Department for Transport has allocated the Combined Authority significant funding and there is therefore real potential to make a tangible impact.

The successful candidate will hold a degree or equivalent in a relevant field and demonstrate evidence of continuous professional development. You should have experience of being responsible for leading the delivery of projects or areas of work and developing effective partnerships with key stakeholders. You should have excellent planning skills and be a strong communicator both verbally and writing. You should be confident taking ownership of issues and being proactive in developing solutions. We are looking for someone who is highly motivated and enthusiastic with a focus on delivery to make their mark in this exciting new role.

To have an informal discussion about this role please contact Alan Weston, Transport & Infrastructure Manager, at alan.weston@teesvalley-ca.gov.uk

Please note, you should hear from us within four weeks of the closing date if you are shortlisted for interview, otherwise you should assume that your application has been unsuccessful.
