Initially, our focus is on the HS2 growth zone around Toton station, the area around East Midlands Airport and the redevelopment of the power station site at Ratcliffe on Soar.

Local partners in the region have responded positively to this opportunity and have formed an Oversight Board to govern the project, drawn down resources from Government and appointed a team of internationally renowned consultants. Recruiting to the Programme Director is a key next step in moving the programme forward.

The role will be hosted by Nottinghamshire County Council on behalf of the Midlands Engine and the post holder will be expected to work collaboratively with Local Enterprise Partnerships, Local Councils, Universities and businesses as well as other key partners and stakeholders across the region and in Government.

This is a hugely important role for the Midlands Engine and for local partners. The Programme Director will be responsible for ensuring the region moves forward in partnership with a robust, well evidenced business case for a locally led body.
