The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is a strategic authority working with partners to deliver a stronger West Midlands, with a focus on skills, innovation, transport, economic development and regeneration. Individual Councils and Local Enterprise Partnerships will still deliver services and retain their identity but on the big decisions we will have the resources to work together.

This is an exciting time for the West Midlands - the Commonwealth Games will be here in 2022, the arrival of HS2 will help make us a world class business location and a new £350m housing deal aims to deliver 215,000 new homes by 2031.

Against a backdrop of a uniquely challenging and evolving environment, we are looking for the right people to ensure we can meet the demands of delivering an ambitious agenda that aims to build a healthier, happier, better connected and more prosperous West Midlands. All our roles will truly have an impact on the whole of our region.

The Programme Management Office ensures that all projects within the WMCA Investment Portfolio are managed and assured to the highest possible standard, in addition to supporting projects across the wider WMCA, including Transport for West Midlands (TfWM).

We are looking for a proactive, analytical individual who will be responsible for providing a comprehensive programme support service across WMCA large scale programmes. You will be experienced in the use of standard project/programme planning packages which will enable you to support on all aspects of programme management.

To be effective in this role, you will have strong interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to maintain standards even when working under pressure.

In return for your hard work and commitment, we will reward you with a range of competitive and attractive benefits.
