We now have an exciting opportunity for a Governance Officer in our Corporate Services Directorate and are looking for a proactive and forward thinking individual to provide a senior administrative support to the Head of Governance.

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.

The Governance team ensures that all Governance, Legal, Assurance, Procurement and Assets Management matters are managed to the highest standard across the organisation.

About the role
As our Governance Officer supporting the Head of Governance and colleagues with administration and systems, this will include chasing actions from committee board papers, supporting the internal audit administration and facilitating responses from Freedom of Information requests received by the WMCA together with other tasks from Legal, Procurement and the Governance Teams.

To succeed in the role …
You will be self-motivated and be able to ensure WMCA compliance with daily activities and conflicting demands. This key role will give you the opportunity to leverage your experience and take your career to the next level.

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