Salary: £87,877 - £105,000

Hours: Full time

Contract: Permanent

In March 2018 the Government announced its intention that as part of the arrangements for the UK to leave the EU, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) will take over the European Commission's State aid approval and enforcement function with respect to aid given by the UK government or UK public authorities. In order to prepare to take on this new area of responsibility, the CMA is building a new State aid group and is keen to talk to lawyers, economists and professional consultants.

The CMA’s State aid function will be a key instrument in the CMA’s wider competition toolkit, helping us make markets work well for consumers. Through our State aid work we will ensure that State aid does not distort competition, ensuring a fair playing field for businesses.

About the role

As the Director of the new State aid group, you will bring leadership and vision to teams of multi-disciplinary staff and assist the Senior Director to achieve the group’s vision and strategy, developing strong relationships with key stakeholders and ensuring that the CMA’s State aid cases are analytically and evidentially rigorous, legally robust and delivered efficiently.

This role presents the opportunity to not only be involved in high quality and high profile work but to also be at the centre of developing the direction of the UK and it’s approach to State aid and competition as we leave the EU.

About you

The successful candidate will offer substantial experience of leading successful projects in areas requiring legal, economic, commercial or policy expertise combined with a demonstrable potential and willingness to acquire at speed a detailed knowledge of State aid regulation.

You will also possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills with proven experience influencing and building relationships with senior internal and external decision-makers.

About the benefits

The CMA is a hugely rewarding and stimulating place to work – an opportunity to work for the public good and to stretch and develop yourself in doing so.

In return we offer generous benefits, including an excellent pension scheme, at least 25 days leave (increasing to 30 over five years), and generous maternity/paternity leave provision. You can also take advantage of interest-free season ticket loans, a cycle to work scheme, our employee well-being programme and favourable consideration of flexible working.

Closing date: 25 February 2019.

The CMA is an accredited Disability Confident Employer and are Stonewall Diversity Champions. As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome suitably qualified applicants from all backgrounds and recruit by merit on the basis of fair and open competition, as outlined in the Civil Service Commission's recruitment principles.
