The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority is growing a team of exceptional individuals to deliver our vision for an inclusive, globally competitive city region at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse.  This is an exciting time for us, having successfully negotiated and secured a Devolution Agreement with Government and elected the City Region’s first ever Metro Mayor.

Devolution brings real, local policy making and investment powers.  This role will help set the agenda for the future of the City Region, working within the Employment and Skills policy team to translate evidence into policy and implementation.

The teams work includes promoting apprenticeships, supporting T level implementation, engaging with back to work programmes and helping employers to reskill for future jobs and opportunities.  The successful candidate will be able to see the opportunities to add value and maximise the links between different policy topics.  They will be confident working with external stakeholders, including politicians and officers from Local Authorities, businesses, Government agencies, Community and Voluntary sector organisations and other public sector organisations, to develop shared objectives and implement collective projects.
