Are you interested in identifying potential sources of harm to both consumers and markets? Are you interested in limiting the potential for harm? The Financial Resilience Department (FRD) are seeking individuals who whilst developing their financial analysis skills, will help the department’s assessment of financial resilience through to comparing the financial resources and controls in firms to the risks inherent in their business models. FRD’s mission is to provide high quality financial analysis of the firms we regulate, and support the FCA more broadly, to meet its objectives.
There are five teams in the department who work closely together to provide high quality assessments of the firms and markets regulated by the FCA. Two teams focus on assessing portfolios of firms and addressing financial resilience issues as they arise. Two teams focus on the financial resilience of a cohort of significant firms. The fifth team is responsible for our data, analysis and structured finance work.
We have roles available in the four teams focussed on the financial resilience of firms. All roles will involve financial analysis, assessing business models and controls and influencing firms to lessen the potential for harm.
We are open to considering flexible working arrangements.

We’re a signatory to the Government's Disability Confident scheme.

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.
The FCA is the prudential regulator of 49,000 financial services firms. We want resilient firms who have financial resources that are commensurate to their activities and that minimise the potential for harm – both in life and in failure. Firms will fail, but firm failure should not be unexpected and should be orderly.
The Financial Resilience Department (FRD) is one of the specialist departments in the FCA. FRD’s mission is to provide high quality prudential expertise across all sectors, and support the FCA more broadly, in seeking to assess and mitigate the prudential causes of harm. Through this we deliver public value.
We deliver on our mission by focussing on firms with the greatest potential for harm, high risk portfolios and firms close to failure. We do this through using data and analysis to identify risks across the 49,000 firms and by assessing the adequacy of firm's financial resources – both through individual firm assessments and cross firm work.

Our ambition is to create a diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects the society we serve, helping us to be a better regulator.
