Business Growth Consultant
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 a Business Growth Consultant to join the Business Growth team (Tees Valley Business).

The Tees Valley Combined Authority are looking for a dynamic, professional and focussed Business Growth Consultant who will work with the aspirations of businesses to grow (in a manner that will normally lead to increased employment), and then through a detailed diagnosis will work with the business to understand the barriers that are currently preventing the growth aspirations from being achieved and identify growth opportunities.

Once the barriers and opportunities have been identified, the Growth Consultant will support the business to access the support and resources they need to remove those barriers and take advantage of opportunities. This will involve signposting and introductions to sources of support including finance and funding, including the Tees Valley Business Fund.

The role will see the Growth Consultant working with colleagues and external stakeholders to significantly increase engagement with SME’s and promote the take-up of local and national business support programmes, leading to the creation and safeguarding of jobs in Tees Valley.
