Project Managers – competition/ regulatory investigations
Due to an exciting phase of growth, the Competition and Markets Authority are recruiting Project Managers, Principal Case Officers and Sector Regulation Managers.
Successful candidates will have the opportunity to play leading roles in the delivery of diverse and often high-profile range of projects with the aim of making markets work well for consumers, business and the economy. These projects include Antitrust/Competition investigations; Merger assessments and Market investigations; Market Studies, investigations using the CMA’s Consumer Enforcement powers and other policy projects.

If you want to find out what life is like on a day-to-day basis in these roles take a look at our applicant pack, which provides more detail about the different areas in which we are recruiting.
Within these roles, you will have the opportunity to play an active role in project strategy, planning and scoping as well as the evaluation and analysis of evidence and the preparation of key case outputs (such as Statements of Objections and Merger Decisions). Where relevant you may also have the opportunity to participate in key investigatory steps – including dawn-raids and witness interviews.
You will liaise with a range of internal and external stakeholders including large companies and their advisers, sector regulators and international regulators as well as other government departments, and will interpret and communicate complex information to a variety of audiences. You will also have the opportunity to move between the different areas within the CMA.
As a result of additional Government funding, the CMA currently has a particular interest in recruiting candidates who are able to lead and further enhance its competition enforcement work. However, the CMA is also interested in candidates with an interest outside competition enforcement and successful candidates may work across the range of the CMA’s work areas. Candidates should indicate if they have a particular area of interest in their cover letter
