The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority is on the hunt for a new Director of Innovation to head up its newly created Innovation Division. The role will have responsibility for driving the FCA's engagement with technological innovation within the financial services industry while developing, new, innovative and data-led ways of regulating.

“This role will have a large impact on the FCA and the achievement of its objectives through helping build approaches in innovation, fintech, regtech, advanced analytics and data,” said the FCA in the job advert, which was posted in mid-November 2019. “This will help prepare the FCA to navigate through rapidly changing technologies and set us up as the regulator of the future.”
