Ofcom is the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications sectors. We regulate TV and radio, fixed line and mobile telecoms, postal services, and the radio spectrum. On 3 April 2017 we became the BBC’s first external regulator.
The role of Ofcom’s Competition Group is to identify and respond to competition problems in the telecommunications, postal and broadcasting sectors. We intervene with regulation where we think this can make a significant difference to how communications services work for consumers. Enforcement is a critical part of ensuring that this regulation is effective.
Being part of the Enforcement team within the Competition Group will place you in a unique position to expand your career. The Competition Enforcement team has a varied portfolio of cases, covering a number of different policy areas within Competition Group and other Ofcom groups. This means that you will be part of a team working across all the markets Ofcom oversees and will gain real insights into the companies we regulate.
As a Case Leader, your work will be varied, both in terms of subject matter and the type of projects you will run. Depending on your work profile at any one time, your responsibilities may include:
Some examples of the work led by Case Leaders in the last year include:
If you are interested in the role, we invite you to submit your CV together with a 500-word covering letter explaining why you want to join the Competition Group as a Case Leader. Ofcom offers competitive salaries plus pensions and flexible benefits package.
We recognise that not everyone has the same needs and we strive to offer flexible working arrangements to help manage work and personal commitments. We have family friendly policies that actively seek to support our colleagues and enable our teams to work in the most effective way.
