Competition and Markets Authority
Chief Data & Technology Insights Officer

London, Edinburgh or Manchester
P2210-161L

The Competition and Markets Authority is an independent non-Ministerial government department and is the UK’s lead competition and consumer authority. We work to ensure that consumers get a good deal when buying goods and services, and that businesses operate within the law.

Advances in digital technologies have led to the growth of powerful platform businesses and substantial increases in the collection and use of data, computing power, and the development and use of algorithms. These advances have reshaped our economy and society and delivered substantial benefits to consumers, but are also raising new challenges, including for competition policy and consumer protection.

In this context, the CMA established a new Data, Technology and Analytics (DaTA) unit in early 2019, to increase its digital capabilities and support its work. There are now nearly 50 team members across technology insight, data science, engineering, behavioural science, eDiscovery and digital forensics with the headcount planned to grow to around 65. With the creation of the new Digital Markets Unit in the CMA, demand for the skills of the DaTA unit will increase further.

Reporting to the Chief Economic Advisor, who is part of the Senior Executive Team, the Chief Data & Technology Insights Officer will be responsible for the strategy and delivery of the Data, Technology and Analytics (DaTA) unit. The role has a strong focus on ensuring the CMA understands how technology works in markets.

The CMA has an exciting and challenging agenda – to contribute to faster economic growth, deliver positive competition outcomes and make markets work well for consumers, businesses and the economy. We have a vital role to play in the UK economy through our many and varied roles and responsibilities, and while we are in no doubt as to the size of the task, we’re encouraged by the progress we have made so far, and excited to take up the challenge of delivering tangible results for UK consumers and businesses, especially post EU exit.

This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a team in an area of importance, make a real difference to consumers at a critical time, and shape the CMA’s and other regulators’ data strategies, in partnership with a wide range of senior professionals working in the sector and academic world.

Right now, the Competition and Markets Authority is a particularly exciting and interesting place to work – and is set to become even more so over the next few years.

CMA has retained Russell Reynolds Associates to advise on this appointment. The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Tuesday 3rd January 2023. For further information on the position and additional details on qualifications, requirements, terms and conditions of service and how to apply, please review the position specification below.

Centre for Finance, Innovation & Technology
Chief Executive Officer

The Review, led by Sir Ron Kalifa OBE, recommended the creation of a new private sector-led organisation – the Centre for Finance, Innovation and Technology (CFIT) – to ensure the UK is the global leader for financial innovation. Their mission is to accelerate opportunities and unblock barriers to growth for fintech, by bringing together the best minds from the ecosystem, to drive better outcomes for consumers and SMEs across the UK.

CFIT’s core objectives are to bring together time-limited ‘coalitions’ of experts to address barriers to fintech sector growth; and to support the creation of high-income, tech-based employment nationwide; firms achieving global scale; and improving access by citizens and small businesses to financial services.

Driven by research and data generation, national co-ordination, and supporting the pipeline of talent by providing skills development opportunities, CFIT will need to reflect the interests of a range of interested parties, including from the broader financial services, technology and innovation sectors.

In leading CFIT, the Chief Executive Officer will need to have the experience and business acumen to develop and finalise a robust business plan focused around achieving a clear set of objectives.

The long-term funding and sustainability of CFIT is key to its success. This should be a priority for the CEO from the outset and they will need the necessary experience in managing a business, its finances and relationships with seed and follow-on investors to ensure that the entity can function effectively from a funding perspective.
