Enforcement

Our Enforcement teams investigate and penalise UK businesses for breaching financial regulations. Together they look into companies’ misconduct and, ultimately, bring about criminal and civil prosecutions.

What you'll do

As a graduate in the Enforcement team, you will get to work on many different aspects of an investigation case. Whether you’re studying relevant financial regulation and possible breaches or interviewing people to get a clearer picture of what’s gone on, you will play a big part in analysing the evidence and proposing appropriate sanctions. 

You’ll be investigating and tackling the most serious regulatory breaches and incidents in financial services. No two days will be the same and the work you do will be varied, challenging and interesting. You’ll gain a great understanding of our legal framework as you work on high-profile cases and make it clear to perpetrators and beyond that there are real consequences for those who don’t meet our standards.
