Competition is important in the fast-moving communications industries, and Ofcom shapes the rules of competition to make communications work for everyone.
We are involved in projects across the telecoms, post and broadcasting sectors.
Competition policymakers bring together different perspectives from external stakeholders and specialists such as lawyers, engineers, and economists, to unpack complex problems and build policy solutions.
There is a variety of roles within competition policy. We gather and analyse information, manage external and internal stakeholder relationships, and deliver large and often complex projects. Some of us come from technical backgrounds and provide technical input on competition projects.
Competition policymakers have the opportunity to work across policy roles and industry sectors, or to specialise in particular roles or sectors. There is a wide range of different career paths for policymakers within Ofcom. We need a team of people from different backgrounds to help deliver better outcomes for consumers and businesses in the UK.
