Associate - Temp - £17 per hour


At the FCA, we're creating a fair and more resilient financial system. We're establishing more transparent relationships between financial services and their customers, building trust in financial markets and protecting vulnerable consumers.

Market Oversight is responsible for overseeing primary and secondary market activity through its role under the listing, market abuse and short-selling regimes. MarketOversight aims to discharge these responsibilities in a way which is proportionate, risk focused and forward-looking, through education of the market, and using a range of tools and techniques. Our work protects consumers and delivers market integrity by ensuring high standards of market practice and appropriate disclosure so our markets will function well.

The Listing Transactions and Primary Market Oversight Departments sit within the Market Oversight Directorate at the Financial Conduct Authority. Together they discharge the FCA's UK Listing Authority (UKLA) functions. These functions provide regulatory oversight of the UK's primary capital markets, and have a regulated community which includes issuers of publicly traded securities, sponsors and Primary Information Providers. The two departments are responsible for ensuring that this community complies with regulatory obligations contained in the FCA's Listing Rules, and discharges the FCA's responsibilities as the competent authority under the Prospectus Directive, the Transparency Directive and parts of the Market Abuse Regulation.
