We are seeking policy managers to drive the delivery of Ofcom’s consumer policy programme and improve consumer outcomes in communications markets.
The role of the Consumer Policy team, which is part of Ofcom’s Consumer Group, is to identify and respond to consumer problems by developing policy to empower and protect consumers so that:
· there is widespread availability of key services;
· consumers have clear and accessible information to make informed choices about the services they buy;
· there is easy switching between providers so consumers can act on their choice;
· there is additional, targeted support for consumers who struggle to engage, especially those who are vulnerable; and
· consumers are protected when things go wrong, including intervening with regulation where we think this can make a significant difference to consumers.
Policy-making is a vital part of what we do at Ofcom. It involves understanding a problem and designing options and solutions to solve it. We know that great policy-making involves bringing together expertise to get the best result.
Whether it’s ultra-fast broadband, the internet of things or the next generation of mobile, this is one of the most exciting times to be involved with communications in the UK.
As the UK’s communications regulator, Ofcom is at the heart of a sector which not only impacts on everyone’s lives but also plays a leading role in the UK economy. Ofcom exists to make communications markets work for everyone. Markets work well for consumers when providers compete to provide choice and innovative services, at prices that consumers are willing to pay. In order for consumers to gain the benefits of competition they need to be able to exercise informed choice. 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.
The Market Research team are responsible for providing a deep understanding of consumers and citizens in the markets we regulate. Market Research is essential to Ofcom's role as an evidence-based regulator. Our research informs strategic, policy, and operational decisions. Our market research projects cover a wide range of topics and methodologies and we collaborate with independent research agencies to conduct primary research, using quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
As Director of Market Research, you will be accountable for developing and delivering our research programme, leading a team of around 20 colleagues who are committed to working together to conduct high quality research that makes a real difference to consumers and to our stakeholders.
