At the CMA, we investigate whether competition is working fairly, and we intervene if it isn’t. We work in many diverse market sectors across the UK economy, from major hotel booking sites and online gambling, to secondary ticketing and social media influencers.
As we prepare to take on an even bigger role following our exit from the EU, the diversity, number, and complexity of the cases we work on is increasing. This means our workforce is growing across the UK, presenting a career-defining opportunity for a Recruitment Adviser to join the CMA Recruitment team and lead on a number of specialist recruitment services.

Beyond the day-to-day responsibilities of the role, you will also play a pivotal role in managing the secretariat function of monthly Workforce Planning Committee meetings, as well as contributing to the delivery of the broader HR Priorities plan and a series of improvements to ensure the processes and practices of the recruitment team and hiring managers are in line with best practice.
