The new North of Tyne Combined Authority – spanning Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland – has set out an ambitious vision for economic growth. Growth that benefits everyone in our urban and rural communities, and creates a dynamic and more inclusive economy. Following the recent election of our first Mayor, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to harness the potential of people and place to build a cohesive strategic approach to economic development and build on our Devolution Deal. We intend to take it.

Our Director of Economic Growth will lead on delivery – ensuring programmes have pace and impact. You’ll develop bids to unlock further funding opportunities, working closely with an extensive range of community and business stakeholders. It’s a role that demands an assured grasp of economic development and the education and employment skills agenda.
