We are looking for a Lead Regulator - New Entrants to join us - the role can be based in either Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham or Bristol.

As the Lead Regulator of New Entrants you will lead engagement with a portfolio of RPs to gain assurance that they are well governed, financially viable, and managing risk effectively. Providers within this portfolio are those that are designated as ‘for profit’ or that have unusual funding or structural arrangements and they sit outside mainstream regulation activity.

The successful candidate will be CCAB qualified or have extensive experience in a financial environment and have a sound understanding of a range of governance, constitutional, funding and financing arrangements in businesses. You will be able to digest and analyse a wide range of complex material and develop creative solutions for regulation within the overall framework.

You should be used to delivering results in a regulatory, financial or assurance-based environment. Articulate and credible, you’ll combine this expertise with the ability to interact with senior sector stakeholders and make impartial regulatory judgements based on the achievement of regulatory standards.
