Bloomberg runs on data, and in the Global Data team we're responsible for acquiring it and providing it to our clients. We collect, analyse, process and publish the data which is the backbone of our iconic Bloomberg Terminal- the facts and figures which ultimately move the financial markets.

Reference data for regulatory reporting plays an ever-increasing role in our clients' workflows, and Global Data fulfils an important function in supporting Bloomberg users with regulatory change. We analyse regulation, determine the reference data needs, and make this data available on the Terminal in order to support the regulatory reporting needs of our clients. We are the cornerstone of many of Bloomberg's regulatory solutions.

Your role will be to develop subject matter expertise in new and existing regulatory regimes, assess the associated reference data needs, and work across teams and departments to make this data available on the Terminal. Once built, you will be responsible for maintaining these data sets in accordance with policy changes and changing guidance from regulators, and ensuring their timeliness and quality.

As a subject-matter expert in regulatory change, you will also provide exceptional support to clients consuming our regulatory data and collaborate with stakeholders across the firm to help enhance Bloomberg's regulatory solutions.

  • Provide customer support for users of regulatory reference data
  • Partner with a wide variety of stakeholders, from Engineering to Sales

  • A keen interest in the financial markets and regulation
  • 2-3 years of experience working in regulatory change, or working with, managing or using financial data for regulatory reporting requirements. Prior knowledge of current EU or UK frameworks would be an advantage

  • Self-motivation and an aptitude for research
  • Willingness to study regulatory documentation and learn the ins and outs of different regulatory regimes
  • Very strong attention to detail and problem solving skills
  • Ability to work under pressure and in a frequently changing environment
