Associate Cyber Forensic Investigator, Cyber Forensics, Enforcement and Market Oversight


There are few jobs where you can make a real difference to the 2 million people who work in the UK Financial Services industry, the 40 million consumers of financial products and the stability of our economy as a whole.

Our people are integral to our success as an organisation, working alongside industry, visiting firms and speaking to consumers every day as we strive to ensure the FCA is setting the standard for other regulatory bodies across the world.

From regulating Consumer Credit to driving action on Foreign Exchange manipulation or helping strengthen accountability in the banking sector, the FCA is working with the industry to protect consumers, ensure the integrity of the UK financial system and promote fair and effective competition. Our remit has expanded significantly since our creation in 2013, with the number of firms we regulate growing from 23,000 to over 56,000. We oversee conduct across the full span of the financial sector from global investment banks to high street payday lenders, and are now preparing to implement a new strategy that will sharpen our focus to face the regulatory challenges ahead.

The Enforcement and Market Oversight Division ('EMO') investigates and brings regulatory cases, civil actions and criminal prosecutions aimed at changing behaviour in the industry. We wish to obtain timely, robust and cost-effective outcomes to help the FCA achieve its objectives of making sure that firms put consumers at the heart of their business, and that markets work well.

EMO plays a key role in supporting the FCA's desire to identify potential problems at an early stage, and take steps to avert them. Our work is high profile, and a critical aspect of the FCA's approach.
