The Tees Valley covers five local authorities – Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar & Cleveland – with a combined population of 660,000.

The Authority incorporates the highly successful Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership, and sustains strong links with the local business community and other partners. Together, we aim to create 25,000 jobs and £2.8bn extra growth by 2026.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Combined Authority team.

With new responsibilities, we are leading on the investment programme and taking decisions locally. We are working with multiple partners, government agencies, our local council partners and the private sector to secure funding for our highest priority projects. Our devolution settlement allows us to take a long-term view, using new funding powers and strong commercial relationships.

A condition of devolution is that we must adhere to a strict Assurance Framework agreed with Government for all investment decisions. This ensures we make well informed decisions in an open and transparent way. We must also publish a wide range of project and performance information on the TVCA website.

This post is one of three that will provide a pivotal support to partners to guide them through the assurance process and ensure a robust audit trail is available, from early project ideas through to a financial commitment. This will include checking business cases have been fully completed, assisting with project appraisals, setting timescales for project development and decisions and monitoring their progress. The Assurance Officers will ensure clear, complete and accurate information is available to inform decisions. You will work closely with the Claims and Monitoring Officers to ensure a swift transition through to delivery.

The post will support the Project Investment Officers to develop a strong investment programme.
