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 implemented a Devolution Agreement with Government, including electing the City Region’s first ever Metro Mayor. Devolution brings real, local policymaking and investment powers. This role will help to deliver the agenda of the future for people and employers within the City Region. The Liverpool City Region has a historic opportunity right now: it is growing, with a strong base of innovative and resilient SMEs; it is upgrading its economic infrastructure, linked to Northern Powerhouse Rail, and improved local connectivity; and an unrivalled quality of life proposition based on cultural intensity and affordable living costs.
This role sits within the Skills and Apprenticeship Hub, which has been designed to streamline and centralise skills advice and support across the Liverpool City Region in line with the Combined Authority’s One Front Door approach. The team’s work includes promoting our Skill Bootcamps for the Workplace programme, supporting individuals to understand and engage with skills and helping employers to reskill for jobs and opportunities. The programme currently supports Skills Bootcamps in the following Sectors;
Digital, Technical, Green Skills, HGV, Construction and Rail.
The successful candidate will be able to see the opportunities to add value and maximise the links between different policy topics as well as being customer focused. They will be confident working with employers, learners, education providers and compliance teams as we put in place support to narrow skills gaps in the above sectors.
Team members should be self-starting, collaborative and ambitious, offer fresh ideas, and who demonstrate a commitment to evidence-based policymaking and investment, and a determination to deliver for the people of the Liverpool City Region.
This post is permanent and funded by Department for Education Skills Bootcamp funds.
The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority is committed to having a workforce that is representative of the communities we serve. To this end, we particularly welcome applicants from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds, who have a disability or are members of the Armed Forces, Reservists or Veterans.
