This is an exciting opportunity to join us at a time of modernizing our ways of working and delivering significant advancements in our digital services.

Your expertise will help develop and shape our future vision and implement cutting edge technologies.

Your ability to be a “Critical Thinker” on behalf of the customer, alongside your excellent analytical and problem-solving skills, and ability to review information to determine the best QA/testing approach should be realised in your detailed analysis reports and recommendations.

Who we are?

The West Midlands has been one of the most promising regions in England with the fastest growing economy outside London; it has been seen as one of the best places to invest; with improved living standards, regional infrastructure was benefiting from huge investment; a rapid expansion in house building; increasing numbers of apprenticeship starts; construction on HS2 ; and the Battery Industrialisation Centre launched in Coventry.

The West Midlands has one of the greatest potentials to grow in 2021 and we are seeking investment in new markets, upskilling our workforce, protecting our environment, strengthening our communities and repositioning the region as a leader in the national economy.

Now more than ever, we need to be innovative and we don't just return to the old ways of working and living.

We already have many of the building blocks in place - we are resetting our thinking, rebuilding our region and reinventing our image as a national leader.

In order to do that, we will listen to our communities and deliver change for the better as a result of what we've experienced.

There is a lot to look forward to - next year the region will host the City of Culture in Coventry; and following that it will be the site of the Commonwealth Games.

These are opportunities to showcase our region to the world.

The West Midlands is a region which is resilient and innovative, and WMCA is building the future, with a shared vision of a healthier, happier, better connected and more prosperous West Midlands - a fast-growing global force with huge potential and ambition.

Everyone who works here plays their part in this success story and we're all determined to use our unique role to deliver lasting change across our region.

Come and join the West Midlands Combined Authority; be part of Building the Future.

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