Digital Development Officer
Tees Valley Combined Authority
Location: Stockton / Home

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 enthusiastic and self-motivated Digital Development Officer to support the Combined Authority’s strategic ambition towards becoming a highly digital and technologically innovative region. They will operate, supporting the Chief Digital Officer, in the development and delivery of Tees Valley’s Digital Strategy. The role will engage with key organisations, businesses, central government agencies and regional networks.

The role will be a key co-ordination point in development of Tees Valley’s Digital Infrastructure delivery model. This will include, but not be limited to, Superfast Broadband, 5G, SMART City / IoT and Data Management initiatives.

The post holder will be expected to support teams across the Combined Authority, supporting relevant managers in developing TVCA submissions, briefings, and deputising in meetings where required. The post holder will also help develop and support business plan submissions in the key areas of Digital Development, Inward Investment; Innovation; and Clean Growth. The post will require close collaboration with the Strategy Policy and Intelligence Team to ensure a cross-organisational approach.
