About Us
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.

This new role will truly have an impact on the whole of our region.


About the Role
As a graduate, you will work as part of the Public Service Reform team working to make the West Midlands the best it can be by working together to get more people active and reducing the inequalities in those who take part.

This role is not about delivering sport programmes, but an opportunity to work with others to address some of the wider determinants that prevent people getting active, trial and test different ways of working and also champion delivering at scale.


The post will provide essential project and evaluation support and the opportunity to grow your knowledge and experience of working in a large organization and a dynamic team; working with multi stakeholders and to grow project management and evaluating skills on a number of significant projects.


By working with internal and external stakeholders, you'll provide the project management support needed to deliver the physical activity work stream across the West Midlands.


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


We are committed to developing an organisation that is representative of the diverse communities that we serve and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

The following groups are currently under-represented: disabled people young people, Black, Asian and ethnic minority groups and women at senior levels.

We will make reasonable adjustments, in line with the Equality Act, for disabled applicants if these are needed.


Wherever possible we will offer flexible working options which assist work-life balance and support service delivery for the customer.
