The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is comprised of 18 local authorities and four Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) working together to move powers from Whitehall to the West Midlands and our locally elected politicians, who know this region best.

The successful candidate will lead the development of rail projects as set out within the West Midlands Strategic Rail Programme and manage Transport for West Midlands (TfWM’s) relationships with Network Rail, Midlands Connect, West Midlands Rail and wider stakeholders in the West Midlands.
