The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is seeking a highly commercially astute financial analyst to join the Remedies, Business and Financial Analysis (RBFA) Group. 

RBFA provides business and financial analysis and designs remedies for the problems identified, applying professional expertise to contribute to the CMA’s mission to make markets work well for consumers, businesses and the UK economy.

As the lead adviser, you will be responsible for providing high quality and timely commercial and financial analysis to support key decisions. This will include working closely with economists and legal advisers in multi-disciplinary project teams to investigate, analyse and advise upon financial and business issues in merger, market, consumer, regulatory and antitrust inquiries. You will be responsible for delivering analysis that informs the CMA’s understanding of how businesses and markets are functioning and that makes an important contribution to deciding whether or not there is a competition or consumer problem. You will play a central role in finding effective solutions to the problems we find.

To be successful in your application you will need to have a postgraduate business, finance or accounting qualification (e.g. ACA, CIMA, CFA or MBA) or equivalent postgraduate experience, ideally alongside familiarity with economics and financial theory. You will offer significant relevant commercial and financial analytical and interpretive experience including understanding business models in different industries; generating insights from complex information and evidencing accounting knowledge and numeracy. Alongside this you will also need the ability to build and sustain constructive working relationships, combined with strong oral and written communication skills.

The CMA is currently undergoing rapid expansion. Joining us now, as we work on our next phase of transformation, will offer uniquely exciting professional opportunities.

The CMA offers an excellent benefit package to new employees, CMA staff enjoy generous benefits, including:
