Further information

We are at the forefront of northern growth, and a flagship for successful devolution.

The Tees Valley Combined Authority is responsible for overseeing around £½ billion in investment funds, with more to come through new devolution deals. In May 2017, the residents of the Tees Valley elected Ben Houchen as Mayor for the Tees Valley, and Chair of the Combined Authority.

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 and unique opportunity to work with the Tees Valley Mayor, and Combined Authority staff, to take forward the Mayor’s priorities. The post will provide a comprehensive range of executive support to the Tees Valley Mayor, to support the delivery of his priorities. The postholder will play an important role in managing effective working relationships with key stakeholders, both within and outside of the Combined Authority.

You will have demonstrable experience of conducting research, analysis and policy development in a political environment and a proven track record of establishing successful working relationships and engaging with a wide range of partners.
