Job Description



Great Britain’s gambling industry is in a constant state of change, fuelled by shifting consumer behaviour and the rapid growth of technology. It’s high profile politically too, and the legislation controlling gambling is constantly under scrutiny. Within this uniquely challenging and evolving environment, The Gambling Commission’s role is to ensure that gambling is crime free, fair and open - and that children and vulnerable people are protected. Now they need you to play a key role in their future, driving the change needed to ensure that the Gambling Commission can meet the growing complexity of the market and their developing regulatory remit.
 
The Gambling Commission are now looking for an Economic Analyst to help drive forecasting and support market size and shape predictions.
 
If you are a talented economist or a senior economic analytical professional eager for a new challenge, this is an outstanding opportunity to progress your career in an exciting new area with a leading regulatory body.
 
As an Economic Analyst, you will be challenged to assist in economic forecasting activities with particular focus on the changing size and shape of the regulated gambling industry.
 
This is an important role that will see you utilising a wide range of different methods to gain an understanding of regulatory challenges, both present and upcoming and on an international and domestic basis.
 
You’ll look into future regulations, competition within the market, fiscal, consumer and technological elements and any other aspects that will affect the direction or success of the gambling marketplace.
 
Additionally, you will:
 
- Provide support and training to new team members
- Undertake analytical tasks such as cost/benefit analysis
- Provide a policy perspective from a consumer’s point of view
- Deliver specialist advice to drive decision making from an economic insight standpoint
- Develop an in-depth understanding of current and future markets from an economic perspective
 
So, if this the role for you? If so, you will need experience as an economic analyst or senior economic analysis professional. Sound judgement and proven problem-solving skills are also key.
 
As an Economic Analyst, you will have the willingness to support and upskill others. A strong communicator, you will also have well developed interpersonal abilities and skills in imparting complex information effectively.
