Secondments are welcomed.


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
Working in partnership with the Careers and Enterprise Company this is an exciting opportunity to lead a region wide, multi-stakeholder project supporting young people at risk of becoming Not Engaged in Education, Employment or Training (NEET).

Working in partnership with our Further Education Colleagues and making the links to existing school provision, the role will focus on young people's continued engagement or re-engagement by ensuring that Careers or programme interventions fully support their successful transition to education, employment or training.


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: young people, Black, Asian and ethnic minority groups and women at senior levels.
