Midlands Connect is a pan-Midlands partnership of 23 Local Authorities, nine Local Enterprise Partnerships, the Chambers of Commerce, Highways England, HS2 Ltd, Network Rail and our Sponsor the Department for Transport. It aims to deliver the enhanced connectivity required to power the Midlands Engine, maximising the Midlands’ position as a hub of the national transport network; driving economic growth, trade and productivity.

The Midlands Connect region spans the country from Herefordshire in the West to the East Coast in Lincolnshire, and from Derbyshire in the north of our region to Warwickshire in the south. Our transport network serves several markets - commuters and freight, visitors and business; local, regional, and national traffic traverses our roads and rails.

The Midlands Connect Strategy was published in March 2017 and will help secure the further infrastructure funding needed to lay the groundwork for improved connectivity across the Midlands, bringing the East and West closer together and opening the region’s businesses to the world.

We now need a dynamic team to carry the strategy forward and ensure that we as a region are in a place to compete and perform on an international stage. Our team needs to be as varied as our region and we are offering a package which will attract the brightest and the best to work with our partners to deliver real change within the region, and beyond.
