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.
