If you want to contribute to the investigation of high-profile anti-competitive practices across the UK, with responsibility for building the knowledge and skills of other team members, then this if the perfect career opportunity for you.

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.  As we continue to investigate and bring enforcement action against cartel and anti-competitive behaviour, we are now recruiting a number of Higher Executive Officers (HEOs) to join our Registry and Casework teams.


Registry Support

The CMA’s Casework Support Registry is a resource within the organisation created to provide first-class support to case teams within the Antitrust division, to deliver Antitrust enforcement cases quickly and effectively.  HEOs manage external case files for one or more Competition Act investigations by preparing the case files for inspection by external parties (known as ‘Access to File’). This includes carrying out thorough analysis and assessments of information, ensuring that any potential breaches to guidelines, legislation or confidentiality are accurately assessed and identified upfront


Casework Support

The Casework Support Service work as part of multidisciplinary teams investigating potential anticompetitive activity that is contrary to the Competition Act 1998 or the Enterprise Act 2002.  HEOs within the Casework Support Service provide oversight of file management and case administration on allocated cases, using project management skills to manage the Access To File process and preparation and logistics for inspections, and provide assistance to on-site investigation teams, acting as a site exhibits officer.

In both services HEOs are responsible for the day-to-day supervision and ongoing development of more junior team members including providing training, ensuring fair and consistent allocation of work and overseeing quality assurance of casework administration.
