Job Level
Job Type
Full Time - Permanent


As part of Ofcom, the Competition Group is focused on identifying and responding to competition issues in all these sectors. We prefer to allow markets and competitive forces to determine outcomes and only intervene with regulation if this is unsuccessful. As part of our team, you will help ensure that our policies have a sound financial basis.


You will work on a variety of projects with other members of the team, as well as economists, lawyers, technical experts and policy specialists to provide relevant and reliable financial analysis to underpin Ofcom’s decisions. You will also write up the results of your analysis in Ofcom’s consultations and will have an opportunity to engage with a wide variety of external stakeholders.


During your two years as a graduate you will work on novel and challenging policy projects across different industry sectors (similar to consultancy work) and develop understanding of commercial and financial issues facing our stakeholders. You will be supported by colleagues with backgrounds in accountancy, economic consultancy, and industry to develop your financial expertise.


The work will be project based and varied; recent projects include building and maintaining a fit for purpose regulatory financial reporting regime for BT, contributing to developing the regulatory framework for BBC, reviewing the impact of competition on the financial sustainability of Royal Mail, advising on corporate finance matters including stakeholders’ cost of capital, delivering financial analysis to support price control modelling and supporting Competition Act and other investigations. 


We will support studies for a professional accountancy qualification (CIMA) while you develop your financial expertise on this pathway.
