FRC launches recruitment videos in drive to fill 80 new openings

09 October 2019
The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has kicked off a new recruitment drive as it expands its roles and responsibilities to improve trust and transparency in business.  
With over 80 new positions being created in the 2019/20 financial year alone, there are significant opportunities for a broad range of candidates to play a key role working in the public interest on high-profile issues.
To showcase the range of opportunities available, the FRC has launched a series of videos to highlight the benefits of working at the FRC, featuring new Chief Executive, Sir Jon Thompson. 
As the FRC begins its transition into a new regulator with strengthened powers and responsibilities - known as the Audit, Reporting and Governance, Authority (ARGA) - there will be even greater opportunities for staff to help grow, and shape, the organisation.   
Benefits of working at the FRC:
  • working in the public interest, on a range of high-profile issues
  • a healthy work/life balance, with flexible and agile working arrangements available
  • opportunities to grow within an expanding organisation
  • working in a collaborative and collegiate way on many game changing issues in the regulatory space.   
Jenny Waterman, Head of HR at the FRC, 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 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. 
Ideal candidates will have expertise and interest in corporate reporting, accounting and audit quality. The FRC also encourages and promotes career changes and welcomes returners who have taken career breaks.
