West Yorkshire Combined Authority and the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership work with councils and businesses to ensure that everyone in our region benefits from a strong, successful economy and a modern, accessible transport network.

Overall, the Combined Authority covers a population of around 2.5 million people, 1.5 million jobs, over 120,000 businesses and represents the largest, and perhaps the most diverse, economy outside London.

We are seeking an exceptional senior leader to be part of our leadership team. You will drive forward regional economic growth by working collaboratively across all business sectors to deliver skills and employment, develop business competitiveness and attract international inward investments. This is a unique opportunity for someone to make their mark on one of the UK’s greatest economies.

You will have a track record of successfully working across multiple business sectors with a good understanding of both the local and global economy, have a proven ability to grow and nurture rapport with clients, partners and external stakeholders and be a capable problem-solver using a collaborative leadership style to deliver our ambitions for economic growth in the region.

We offer an excellent benefits package including access to the local government pension scheme (with generous employer contributions). We also offer an encouraging environment that will allow you to achieve your best work/life balance and career goals.

The Combined Authority’s aim is to attract people from diverse backgrounds to build on our inclusive culture and represent the communities that we serve. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, race, gender, religion or beliefs, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation.

Applicants with a disability are guaranteed an interview, subject to the minimum criteria being met.

We are committed to inclusivity and will consider requests for flexible working including part-time and job share arrangements.

Please note that whilst it is our usual policy to recruit at SP1 for all appointments, each role includes career salary progression, with incremental increases applicable in most cases, on an annual basis.
