Non Executive Directorships

Competition and Markets Authority, Panel Members

Location: London

Date Posted: 10/07/2019

Closing Date: 08/08/2019

Vacancy Description

About the CMA

The CMA works to promote competition for the benefit of consumers, both within and outside the UK. Its aim is to make markets work well for consumers, businesses and the economy, with a strong consumer protection role. In order to meet these responsibilities, it operates with flexibility and transparency.

The CMA’s current primary activities are to operate the antitrust, mergers and market regimes; provide advice and guidance to businesses to help them understand and comply with competition law; enforce consumer protection legislation; assess challenges to sector regulators’ decisions; and resolve disputes relating to licence and price modification proposals. The Government has also chosen the CMA to be the UK’s independent state aid authority once the UK leaves the EU.

Much of the CMA’s work is supported by Panel Members, (currently 30 strong, including Inquiry Chairs).

About Panel Members  

We are seeking to appoint additional Panel Members who may be tasked with: running merger and market inquiries that have been referred for a thorough (phase 2) investigation; making decisions on regulatory appeals on price controls or terms of licences; assisting with internal CMA governance and policy committees, or serving on Case Decision Groups (CDGs) for Competition Act 1998 antitrust and cartel enforcement cases. CDGs are the decision takers (independent of the investigation team) and are responsible for taking decisions on whether to issue an infringement decision (or a ‘no grounds for action’ decision) and what the fine should be.

Panel Members must make evidence-based and fair decisions backed up by well-reasoned reports. Panel Members must also work collaboratively with other Panel Members and staff to:

  • assess relevant evidence, both oral and written, from interested parties;
  • use their skills and experience to analyse complex commercial, economic and financial information;
  • interpret legal precedent taking account of all relevant factors and issues, including matters of EU and UK public law;
  • work collaboratively and use sound judgment to help the group reach fair decisions, where possible by consensus.

In performing their functions, Panel Members must maintain the highest standards of integrity, impartiality and objectivity at all times.

Panel Members will be asked to consider the performance objectives of the CMA and help ensure the CMA makes proper, economical, effective and efficient use of its resources.

If the State Aid (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 are passed, once appointed, some Panel Members may be selected to take decisions on state aid after the UK leaves the EU.

 

Person Specification

Role Criteria:    

Panel Members must be independent and should not represent interest groups.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate the following attributes:

Essential Criteria:

  • the ability to adjudicate on complex and contentious issues of national importance and take decisions which stand up to robust external scrutiny;
  • the ability to absorb and use large quantities of detailed information and to assess and analyse complex economic, regulatory, and legal arguments;
  • well-developed team-working and interpersonal skills to work collaboratively with other group members and staff to explore issues, with the aim of reaching collective agreement on the matter at hand;
  • the ability to think strategically, to offer direction on the analysis of issues, and use questioning skills to probe the detail of the matter at hand; and
  • the ability to work to tight timescales in considering evidence, offering consistency and logical analysis to reach fair judgments based on sound reasoning.

Desirable Criteria:

  • judicial experience or equivalent experience, in any of the nations of the UK (Scotland, Northern Ireland and England and Wales), including experience in interpreting legal precedent, including matters of EU and UK law;
  • experience in government or of formulating or assessing fiscal, economic or public policy and experience of balancing competing considerations would be desirable;
  • awareness of national, devolved, regional public policy structures and processes;
  • experience of law, economics, business or consumer matters in any of the nations of the UK

 

Additional Information

The CMA must be, and be seen to be, impartial. Consequently, Panel Members must comply with the CMA’s conflicts of interest policy.
