Further information

The Tees Valley – made up of the five boroughs of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough,
Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees – stands ready to make its mark on the world
once again. From Teesside Airport in the west to Teesworks in the east, and everything in
between, we’re developing the skills, infrastructure and communities that will transform our

The Tees Valley Combined Authority has made huge progress since its creation five years
ago, taking on devolved responsibilities from Government. We are now driving forward the
redevelopment of our transport network; revitalising training and education; boosting our
businesses; championing culture, tourism, and supporting our boroughs in improving our
towns and communities.

These powers are backed up by substantial funding, with a ten-year Investment Plan
outlining how £588million of spending will support the creation of 16,785 jobs and an
additional £1.48billion to the area’s economic output and help the delivery of our Strategic
Economic Plan.

The Combined Authority has recently become a Group structure, taking on responsibility for
Teesside International Airport and Teesworks – the UK’s largest Freeport – to cement our
potential for global investment and regeneration.

As well as these assets, we boast experienced rail and engineering industries, a 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,
innovative energy companies.

Recent developments, such as securing Freeport status for sites in every borough, the news
that a number of central Government departments will be relocating to our area including HM Treasury and recent investments in cutting-edge clean energy and offshore projects, shows just how we are punching above our weight right now.

Tees Valley Combined Authority are looking for a Group Director of Business and Skills. The postholder will have a hugely important role to play in delivering our plans and taking us on to the next stage of our journey.

If you share our ambitions, relish opportunities to work in partnership with various stakeholders at national, regional and local level, and have the skills and values to lead and engage a high performing team, we would be delighted to hear from you.
