Dear Candidate

Thank you for your interest in the position of Chief Executive at Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority.

The work of the Combined Authority is done through a constant flow of democratic decision-making and practical, focused delivery. The elected Mayor, the Combined Authority Business Board, and the Committees (both comprised of elected members of the Constituent Councils) direct our work to follow the priorities, values and goals for our region; the teams of specialist officers then drive the projects forward on the ground. The role of the CEO is hugely important and leads the Combined Authority in the delivery of our strategy.

The pandemic has brought further challenges, but we remain hugely ambitious for our economic recovery and laser-focused on building a globally competitive, environmentally responsible and socially inclusive economy across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

We want an inspirational leader, with the highest ambitions and expectations for us as a Combined Authority and the diverse and brilliant community we are proud to work for. In doing all of this, you’ll build and inspire our great team.

As Chief Executive you’ll test boundaries and will be joining at a time to help us support our citizens coping with COVID-19 and its effect on their lives, and ensure our successful economic, financial, social and environmental recovery.

You will continue the great work already on areas like transport and infrastructure, housing, education and skills and inward investment across the region.

To meet this huge and exciting challenge, we’re looking for a world class leader who will channel all the talent, energy, ideas and resourcefulness of our amazing region, as we work to build back better.

If you’re as excited as we are by this fantastic opportunity, We’d like to hear from you.
