About Us
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.

This role provides an exciting opportunity for career enhancement in a forward-looking, growing and ambitious organisation.
