Key role representing the banking and finance industry

UK Finance is the collective voice for the banking and finance industry. Representing more than 250 firms across the industry, we act to enhance competitiveness, support customers and facilitate innovation.

We work for and on behalf of our members to promote a safe, transparent and innovative banking and finance industry. We offer research, policy expertise, thought leadership and advocacy in support of our work. We provide a single voice for a diverse and competitive industry. Our operational activity enhances members’ own services in situations where collective industry action adds value.

The core responsibilities of this role are to lead and support the development and delivery of UK Finance policy positions and operational projects with respect to secondary markets regulation - primarily UK MiFID. The role is likely to evolve over time to match industry and government priorities in financial services regulation relating to capital markets and international banking.

This post-holder will be required to coordinate effective stakeholder engagement and client management with our members, UK and/or EU regulators, governments, the media, other trade associations and other relevant stakeholders. They must be able to identify and analyse relevant issues, develop technical policy positions, write effective policy papers, briefings and consultations responses to articulate these positions and work with colleagues to develop and deliver on a strategic advocacy plan that will achieve member’s objectives. The post-holder will also be expected to support delivery of operational projects (typically but not exclusively with a strong policy element) for members.

The post-holder will be expected to be an excellent communicator capable of leading in-depth member discussions on policy and/or technical issues in working groups and committees and will be required to draft and deliver detailed policy papers and presentations. The post-holder will support project management and delivery of the projects within their remit.  It is also expected that the post holder will represent UK Finance at senior meetings and forums and will be responsible for cultivating productive member and regulatory relationships in the UK and EU.
