Expiration Date

27 Jan 2022

The CCPC is seeking to recruit a number of Heads of Unit – Competition Investigations within two of its enforcement divisions, Competition Enforcement & Mergers Division (CEM) and Criminal Enforcement Division (CRIM), these Divisions are responsible for conducting investigations under the Competition (Amendment) Bill 2021.

  • The Competition Enforcement and Mergers Division (CEM) is primarily responsible for exercising the CCPC’s functions as they relate to civil competition enforcement and merger review.
  • The Criminal Enforcement Division (CRIM) is primarily responsible for exercising the CCPC’s functions as they relate to investigation of alleged cartel activity and gun-jumping matter and some breaches of consumer protection legislation.

Both Divisions work closely together to ensure that the Competition Act, 2002 as amended, is properly enforced. 

These new roles arise from the commencement of the Competition (Amendment) Bill 2021 (the “Bill”), which will transpose Directive (EU) 2019/1 (known as “the ECN+ Directive”) into Irish law. The enforcement of competition law in Ireland is set for wide-ranging changes as a result of the commencement of Competition (Amendment) Bill 2021 in transposing the ECN+ Directive. The planned Bill 2021 will empower the CCPC to issue infringement decisions, impose administrative financial sanctions and be a more effective enforcer of competition law. The ECN+ Directive aims to empower the competition authorities of the Member States to be more effective enforcers and to ensure the proper functioning of the internal market. 

Closing date: 02/02/2022 12:00
