At the FCA, we help to protect financial consumers and make markets work well by regulating the conduct of over 59,000 businesses. Our ambition is to become a more innovative, more assertive and more adaptive regulator; one that fully capitalises on data and technology, ensures consumer protection and market integrity, and responds well to the challenges we face. We’re looking for bright, enthusiastic and values driven graduates to join our diverse and highly capable teams across the FCA.
Our Economics team provide rigorous economic thinking, research, analysis and advice to help the FCA deliver on its strategic objective of making financial services markets work well.
Joining this collaborative and friendly department, you’ll have the chance to work on a variety of projects and will be involved in drafting reports, presenting your analysis and providing support to the wider organisation. You’ll be working on market studies, conducting cost benefit assessments and evaluations and carrying out economic research and analysis. While the majority of the work is internally focused, there’s also a lot of external facing work, dealing with the firms that the FCA regulates.
This is a great opportunity to make a real difference to consumers’ lives by guiding future FCA policy decisions, evaluating previous decisions and ensuring we meet our objectives as a regulator.
As a graduate in Economics, you’ll complete the training pathway through our training Academy which will equip you with all the technical skills and business understanding you need for a career with us.
We’re keen for our graduates to develop and grow during their time, so we’ll pay for you to undertake a fully-funded MSc in Economics at Queen Mary University with part-time study over 2 years, if you don’t already have a Masters.
We’re committed to making the FCA a great place to work. We do this by:
