Applications for our Delivery Graduate Scheme are open for September 2024! If you’ve recently graduated or will be graduating soon and are looking to start up your career, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.
As a graduate at the CMA, you will form an integral part of our multi-disciplinary teams as a delivery case officer. You will gain hands-on experience in CMA casework which can involve mergers, markets, antitrust investigations, subsidy advice and much more.
This is an exciting springboard opportunity to gain valuable experience working alongside legal, economic, financial and other experts across our delivery teams.
As a Case Officer on the Graduate Scheme, you will do three 12-month placements in various delivery teams and contribute to the delivery of high-quality outputs, assisting major investigations and studies. This could involve writing draft proposals for investigations, planning and executing dawn raids, analysing documents, developing strategy, and assisting with project management.
Our training programme
During your time at the CMA, you’ll also get to advance your skills and knowledge through a structured training programme. The programme will be spread over the 3 years of the scheme and is designed to:
- expand your knowledge of the CMA – both who does what and how they do it – through the CMA’s Induction, Understanding, and Deepening courses;
- sharpen your drafting, presenting, interpersonal and IT skills; and
- develop your project management know-how through the CMA’s internal courses and by funding your place on an APM Project Management Qualification course
You will also be sponsored to study part-time for an external academic qualification related to your work at the CMA.
If you’re interested in the Scheme, we’d love to hear from you!
