This is a great opportunity for you to take the foundations of a performance framework and lead the organisation in improving the visibility of performance and the 'golden thread' to demonstrate the link between individuals performance goals, how these contribute to meeting our strategic aims and the impact in the region.

What you will be doing?

* Ensure the production of regular performance reporting for several audiences across the WMCA and stakeholders which assess progress against the delivery of WMCA's strategic objectives highlighting risks and issues and required remedial action
* Continuously improve and maintain a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework to support Directorates to develop and maintain robust M&E plans to assess project delivery against objectives
* Work collaboratively with the internal stakeholders including the ODA, to agree a consistent 'lessons learnt' approach and the provision of advice and guidance on how M&E plans can monitor project performance, measure and capturing deliverables and evaluate impact of projects once completed
* Provide leadership and direction to the Performance team; planning and allocating resources and coordinating work. Ensure objectives are set and monitored and that staff are given the tools, the development, training and autonomy to do their job
