Thank you for your interest in joining the Tees Valley Combined Authority.

As Chair of the Combined Authority, my goal is to drive economic growth and realise the enormous potential for the Tees Valley region.

Our Strategic Economic Plan, which is our local industrial strategy, aims to deliver 25,000 new jobs and around 23,000 new homes between 2016-2026. It is at the heart of our plans to transform Tees Valley into a thriving and prosperous place to invest, work, live and visit.

Tees Valley continues to play a significant role in the development of the Northern Powerhouse economy. The election of a Mayor in May 2017 means that we are now one of only eight parts of the country to have a Metro Mayor. This puts us at the top table with big city regions and, with devolved powers on key issues such as employment and skills, transport, culture, planning and investment, we now get to decide how we deal with the matters that are important to us.

I am committed to delivering Government’s Industrial Strategy, as I plan to create an economy that boosts productivity and earning power in Tees Valley, demonstrates clear growth and improves consumer and business confidence. There are fantastic opportunities and a growing optimism and buzz around the region. Not only do we have the biggest development opportunity in the UK with the Mayoral Development Corporation at South Tees, these are also exciting times for our culture and tourism, transport and education sectors.

Our Chief Executive 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.

 Yours sincerely

Ben Houchen
Tees Valley Mayor
