Are you looking for an opportunity where you can use your analysis skills and project management experience to make a positive impact on the UK economy and society?

Join the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and play a key role within the Project Management Office providing analysis and insights to support the CMA's work.


About the CMA

We help people, businesses, and the UK economy by promoting competitive markets and tackling unfair behaviour. Our work is wide ranging, ambitious and often new and challenging.


The role

This is an exciting time to join the CMA, and specifically the Project Management Office. The CMA's role is growing, and the organisation is transforming how it prioritises and manages its expanding and increasingly high-profile portfolio of work to become more strategic and efficient.

You will play an important role in delivering this transformation, helping coordinate the CMA's portfolio of casework to ensure it delivers against strategic goals. You will assist in preparing and delivering reporting to the CMA's senior management team and Board, regarding the CMA's casework portfolio, workforce planning and resourcing alignment.

To do this, you will analyse time recording and other data to build a strong understanding of the organisation's current and future resourcing position, working closely with colleagues across the CMA's corporate functions such as those in Human Resources - particularly workforce planning, Senior Directors and other members of the wider strategy function. You will also help maintain a database of the major projects within the CMA's casework portfolio, including key milestones, keeping this up to date through regular discussions with senior leaders.

As part of the wider Strategy Team, this role also provides a great opportunity to contribute to the development of the CMA's strategic planning, and other strategic priorities.


What you will need

Strong analytical skills and experience of processing and analysing data in an accurate and efficient manner using tools and systems including MS Excel is essential.

In addition to this, you will need project management skills and experience, as well as experience of working with, and influencing, colleagues at all levels and delivering and managing multiple tasks and deliverables within the required timeframe.

Creative data visualisation and the ability to use data to tell a story is equally important.


What we can offer you

The CMA is a hugely diverse, rewarding and stimulating place to work - an opportunity to work for the public good and to stretch and develop yourself in doing so while also having considerable flexibility when it comes to how and when you work. We offer generous benefits, including an excellent pension scheme with an average employer contribution of 27%, 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.

Closing date for applications: 23:55pm 12th February 2024.


Like many other organisations, we operate a hybrid working model with a mix of office and home working. We believe this supports us to deliver our best work while allowing the flexibility to maintain balanced and healthy lives.

The CMA are an accredited Disability Confident Employer, and we are an equal opportunities employer, welcoming suitably qualified applicants from all backgrounds. We recruit by merit on the basis of fair and open competition, as outlined in the Civil Service Commission's recruitment principles.
