Further information

We are at the forefront of northern growth, and a flagship for successful devolution.
In May of 2017, residents in Tees Valley voted to elect their first Mayor, and the area established one of the first Mayoral Combined Authorities in the country. This gives us access to newly devolved powers and resources from Central Government, to drive forward an ambitious agenda that can increase economic growth and prosperity across the region.
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. The purpose of this role is to assist the Economic Strategy and Intelligence Manager in the development and delivery of digital roll-out across the Tees Valley, in particular, the implementation of Phase 2 of the Broadband Delivery UK programme and the subsequent development of Tees Valley’s SMART Region proposition (including full fibre network and open data solutions).
The post holder will work closely with the five Local Authorities (Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton on Tees), other public bodies (NHS, Universities, Colleges and emergency services) and the private sector (in particular mobile telephony and broadband providers) to implement the delivery of full fibre and 5G solutions.
Although there is an initial focus on delivering the broadband and 5G coverage across the Tees Valley, the post holder will primarily be responsible for assisting in the subsequent development of Tees Valley’s SMART Region proposition, which is presently focused on the identification and utilisation of open data sources in the development and delivery of new policy design and initiatives


(using hackathons and Mayoral Challenge Initiatives ), but will ultimately lead on to the development of sensors and to real time dynamic response capabilities.
You will have demonstrable experience of digital project management and development from either Central Government, Local Government or the private sector, and a proven track record of establishing successful working relationships across public and private sectors.
