Assistant Legal Know How Adviser

Salary: £31,363 - £36,126
Location: London
Hours: Full time
Contract: Permanent

The Competiton and Markets Authority (CMA) are seeking a legal professional with expertise in either competition, consumer, and/or economic regulatory law to join the Know-how team. With markets changing fast, and the prospect of legal change related to the EU exit, this is an exciting time to join us.

The CMA is the UK’s world-leading government body established to make sure competition works in consumers’ favour and businesses treat their customers fairly. What we do really matters and makes a difference to people’s lives, but is only possible by having an effective know-how offering that ensures we are able to make the robust decissions that need to be made.

Working with other members of the Know-how team and with project teams across the entire CMA, you will ensure up to date know-how support is provided to CMA staff and panel members to assist them in delivering their objectives. In practice, this means (i) ensuring that lessons learnt from past cases and best practice tools are gathered in and made accessible to all members of staff, with a view to ensuring efficient, robust and consistent decision making across the CMA; and (ii) procuring and making available information resources to staff members, to ensure that they have all the information they reasonably need to perform their duties properly.

The role will involve engagement throughout the CMA and externally both within the competition and consumer law communities and across government, particularly in respect of knowledge sharing.

We welcome applications from those with a proven track record of sharing knowledge effectively and proven capacity to conduct effective, thorough and user-friendly research. This will include the ability to make effective use of electronic and other sources of information. Experience of delivering projects within defined resources and defined timescales is also required.

All CMA staff enjoy generous benefits, including an excellent pension scheme, at least 25 days leave (increasing to 30 over five years), and generous maternity/paternity leave provision. You can also take advantage of interest-free season ticket loans, a cycle to work scheme, our employee wellbeing programme and favourable consideration of flexible working.

Closing date for applications: 22 October 2018.

The CMA are an equal opportunities employer and we recruit by merit on the basis of fair and open competition, as outlined in the Civil Service Commission's recruitment principles.
