We are looking for a self-motivated and proactive individual to undertake the independent appraisal and assessment of the business cases for major investment projects within the WMCA.

Who we are
The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is a strategic authority working with partners to deliver a stronger West Midlands, with a focus on skills, innovation, transport, economic development and regeneration.

Individual Councils and Local Enterprise Partnerships will still deliver services and retain their identity but on the big decisions we will have the resources to work together.

This is an exciting time for the West Midlands - the Commonwealth Games will be here in 2022, the arrival of HS2 will help make us a world class business location and a new £350m housing deal aims to deliver 215,000 new homes by 2031.

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 need
This is an exciting new opportunity to undertake the independent appraisal and assessment of the business cases for major investment projects.

The successful candidate will have experience producing high level business case summaries and reviews, which comment on the extent to which they demonstrate a good fit with the WMCA's strategy and priorities.

You will have the ability to produce a sound cost plan and project management arrangements which provide confidence that the project can be delivered on time.

Ensuring this is within budget and to quality, with risks and issues well managed and all legal and regulatory requirements met.

The post holder will provide challenge to project business cases where applicable and provide WMCA's Investment Panel and Investment Board with clear recommendations as part of their decision on whether to invest in the project.

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