Who we need


We are looking for a highly motivated collaborator and excellent communicator, who has experience in supporting and coordinating projects or programmes to drive systemic change by enabling and facilitating delivery.

We want someone who is a self-starter and works to their own initiative, able to work under pressure, trouble shoot and manage deadlines.

We are looking for someone who will be excited to work in partnership with internal and external stakeholders to achieve results and come across with credibility and confidence.


About the team


By joining our Housing and Regeneration Directorate, you will be supporting some of the biggest housing and regeneration projects in the country and play an integral role in a delivery-orientated organisation.

We are focused on delivering high quality housing, commercial and mixed-use development at pace and scale, and are committed to working collaboratively to achieve inclusive growth for the region.


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.


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 - this 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.
