The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is a strategic authority building a healthier, happier, better connected and more prosperous West Midlands.

We are 18 local authorities and four Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) working together to move powers from Whitehall to the West Midlands and its locally elected politicians, who know this region best.

This is an exciting time for the West Midlands. The Commonwealth Games will be held in Birmingham in 2022, the arrival of HS2 will help make us a world class business location and a new £350 million housing deal aims to deliver 215,000 new homes by 2031.

West Midlands Combined Authority is now seeking to appoint a new Director of Finance to provide outstanding commercial and financial leadership across the organisation, during a period of exciting and unprecedented change for the region. 

Occupying a key position within the organisation and reporting directly to the Chief Executive, more than just a qualified accountant, you will bring a commercial edge to drive innovative and entrepreneurial strategic solutions and ensure the successful delivery of our vision.

Whether you are currently in public service, or working within the private sector, you will have significant experience at this level within a complex, multi-disciplinary organisation.

Working with ambiguity will come naturally, as will driving change at pace, in order to deliver our ambitious vision.

We are committed to equality of opportunity in service provision and employment. Our recruitment policies, procedures and practices enable all applicants to be considered on merit and ability to do the job. We will make reasonable adjustments, in line with the Equality Act, for disabled applicants if these are needed. We are committed to developing an organisation that is representative of the diverse communities we serve and encourage applications from women who are under-represented at this level of seniority.
