Job Description:

C. £100,000 per annum

The South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) brings together the local authorities of Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield to serve the communities and businesses of South Yorkshire. From transport to housing, economic growth to skills, the MCA has a great story to tell. These two roles will be instrumental in building on our achievements to date, and achieving our remarkable potential. It’s a real chance to shift the dial.
 
Working closely with our elected Mayor and Chief Executive, this role will hold accountability for a discrete but connected theme of our ambitious programme. With our new Level 4 Devolution Deal in place, we believe that South Yorkshire can and will be the place that sets the pace, and we’re looking for an experienced and visionary public servant who is hungry to shape a better future for everyone who calls South Yorkshire their home, their workplace, or their destination.
 
As the Director of Law & Governance you will be the lead advisor to the MCA for all legal, procurement and governance issues to ensure appropriate governance, constitutional and legislative compliance is in place to protect the organisation. You will also hold the statutory duties of Monitoring Officer, with a duty to ensure high standards of conduct and lawfulness in the MCA’s decision making and Data Protection Officer, as well as support the Chief Financial Officer in the design and management of commercial activity and the governance arrangements of the MCA’s Group structure.
 
You’ll need experience in a strategic civic role, but will also understand the granular detail of how local services are experienced by those who use them. Our unique place in the regional ecosystem means that we can work beyond
precedent, and you’ll relish the opportunity to think differently about big, important and exciting challenges.
