Financial Conduct Authority, Chief Economist's Department
Senior Associate - Wholesale Markets (Reference: PR00089)


Salary: British Pound 43,000 - 65,000
Location: London

The Financial Conduct Authority is the UK's statutory authority responsible for regulating the conduct of financial services firms in both retail and wholesale markets.

ABOUT THE CED: The Chief Economist's Department (CED) is in the Policy, Risk and Research Division of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). CED is the FCA's central team of economists, working on all aspects of financial services regulation. It has five main work streams:
- Producing or advising on cost-benefit analyses (CBAs) of regulatory policy by using our new Integrated Analysis approach - which takes account of competition, behaviour and classical market failures
- Undertaking original economic research to answer questions of strategic importance to the FCA
- Providing economic advice to the FCA's Competition Department and others on complex issues arising from the competition obligations in the Financial Services and Markets Act (FSMA)
- Representing the FCA on inter-regulator groups that generate economic research
- Enhancing the FCA's accountability in areas such as regulatory costs

JOB DESCRIPTION: Within CED's five main work streams, this role will focus on wholesale financial services markets (e.g. primary and secondary markets, market infrastructure, asset management etc.). Appointees will have opportunities to work on regulatory policy development, research or competition issues in a range of markets, and will be expected to:
- Lead on delivering or contribute to a strategy to embed our new Integrated Analysis* approach in the FCA's policy work
- Advise on economic problems in markets and methodologies to analyse them, as well as produce or advise on cost-benefit analyses (CBAs) of regulatory policy. Again, the framework for this task is our new Integrated Analysis approach
- Contribute to the Competition Department's Market Studies
- Contribute to CED's programme of high-quality, policy-relevant research
- Represent the organisation to external stakeholders

Our Integrated Analysis approach to regulatory analysis of markets aims to take account how traditional and behavioural market failures, as well as context of the individual markets, interact to shape market outcomes, and how regulatory interventions affect these processes.

MINIMAL, ESSENTIAL & DESIRABLE SKILLS: The set of skills required follows from the description of key tasks above. These are very challenging and varied roles but not simply an academic opportunity to practise economics: the FCA needs CED to make a major and effective contribution to managing new legal responsibilities in respect of CBAs as well as the competition objective and duty. Crucial to the roles is the ability to juggle the demands arising from lots of small and large concurrent projects: we are few in number relative to our customers. Also, because economists in CED provide both advice and challenge to colleagues in policy and other teams, we need people able to develop effective and professional working relationships with non-economist colleagues.

MINIMUM: A postgraduate qualification in economics or a related discipline OR an undergraduate degree in economics with significant relevant professional experience.

ESSENTIAL: Significant experience in delivering analytical projects, demonstrated through past employment that is applicable to the practice of financial regulation. Specifically this includes:
- organisational skills, i.e. prioritisation and resource management, and
- high levels of analytical skills and significant expertise in economic analysis including a thorough knowledge of methodologies. Significant expertise in economic analysis needs to be demonstrated in at least one of the following areas: econometrics, industrial organisation, economic regulation, competition policy, information economics, behavioural economics or financial markets. The candidate also needs to be able to develop some understanding of all of the aforementioned areas.
- Ability to work independently and deliver significant pieces of work including managing the time of associate staff and contributing to their development.
- Good judgement and the confidence, discipline and intellectual ability to deliver in a demanding environment.
- The ability to manage and balance a portfolio of activity.
- Ability to communicate and challenge effectively and to manage a range of working relationships (especially with non-economists). This includes the ability to listen carefully, to provide information, to give advice that is specifically relevant to the FCA issues at hand and if necessary, to challenge firmly but politely.
- Ability to represent the organisation as a credible expert on the economics of financial services markets with internal and external stakeholders.
- Some knowledge of wholesale financial markets.

DESIRABLE: First-hand experience of financial services markets and/or an understanding of financial services regulation in wholesale markets.

WHAT WILL I GET FROM THE ROLE? These roles provides a unique opportunity to help shape how our new Integrated Analysis approach is used at a rapidly developing public body which can have a profound impact on markets and many people's lives. You should expect to see your work having a positive influence, primarily on evidence-based policy-making. The role offers an attractive package of salary and benefits, and extensive development opportunities in applied economics, financial services and broader professional skills.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: To apply, please visit http://www.fcacareers.org.uk

Closing date: October 24th 2014
