Job info

We are recruiting for three Political Analysts to join our Regulatory Action team during an exciting and busy election year. This small team has a number of differing but equally important roles supporting and enhancing the work of other teams in the Regulation directorate.

The team is responsible for:

  • monitoring campaigning and other activity by political parties and campaigners where it relates to the political finance regime, particularly around major electoral events when the team is also expanded.
  • contributing to driving our digital transformation. 
  • ensuring that our internal processes are effective so that our regulatory work is of high quality and conducted consistently.
  • our liaison work with the police, in dealing with areas where our work and theirs overlaps.

The Political Analyst roles are focused on the first two of those responsibilities. The workload is varied and becomes intense during major electoral events. It can involve dealing with politically sensitive matters.

We are looking for committed individuals interested in elections and the link between UK politics and technology. You will have a strong detailed-oriented approach and excellent communication skills to contribute to the collection of regulatory intelligence and the monitoring of regulated entities’ campaign activities and their compliance with PPERA in the run-up to UK elections. 
You do not need experience in the political finance regime, but you will have the ability to learn quickly and excellent organisational skills, with a proven track record of delivering results against challenging timeframes and competing demands.
