UK’s FRC launches recruitment drive as it transitions into ARGA

The UK’s Financial Reporting Council (FRC) launches recruitment drive as it begins to transition into the new regulator, the Audit, Reporting and Governance, Authority (ARGA).

There are currently over 80 positions being created in the 2019/20 financial year which will see candidates working on high profile issues. To showcase the range of positions, the FRC has launched a series of videos to highlighting some of the opportunities.

The 80 new roles are across a variety of departments and levels. The increase in staff is designed to meet the FRC’s increased supervisory responsibilities, including boosting the FRC’s Enforcement and audit inspection teams.

FRC head of HR Jenny Waterman said: “As the FRC expands in both our remit and size, we are looking for candidates from a range of backgrounds to play a key role in shaping the future of the FRC and in promoting the UK as a great place to do business.

 “The FRC is committed to championing equality and diversity across all areas of our work and promotes flexible working to recruit and retain high quality people.”

The FRC has been undergoing a change of leadership, yesterday the Simon Dingemans and Jon Thompson took up their respective roles as chair and chief executive.
