    Federal Trade Commission
    Bureau of Consumer Protection,
    Financial Practices

     Associate Director for Financial Practices

    The FTC seeks a qualified candidate for the Associate Director for Financial Practices position.  The Associate Director (AD) for Financial Practices directs, manages, and supervises all programs for which the Division is responsible and oversees issues related to the advertising, sale, and provision of financial products or services, including payday loans; motor vehicle sales, financing, and leasing; debt collection practices; mortgage, credit card, and other debt relief services; mortgage advertising; and payment systems and processing . This involves directing and supervising studies, investigations, and legal proceedings, including litigation to ensure that the general public is not affected by unfair or deceptive practices in the financial services area. The Division staff enforces the statutes and rules within its jurisdiction, engages in outreach and policy development, and educates consumers and businesses about emerging financial practices, services, and products. In addition, the staff analyzes the impact of current and potential legislative initiatives in the areas within its purview.

    The scope of the Division's work includes responsibility for consumer protection matters involving general credit; debt collection; debt relief services; payday lending; motor vehicle sales, financing and leasing; truth-in-lending; mortgage advertising; payment systems; and deceptive marketing of financial products and services. The Division's responsibilities also involve activities designed to increase the amount of accurate, reliable and useful credit information available to consumers and activities designed to discourage, correct, or eliminate practices by credit card companies, lending institutions, leasing companies, and motor vehicle dealers which prevent a full and fair functioning of the financial services marketplace. The Division also leads the Commission's efforts to promote stronger consumer protections in the mobile marketplace, including protections for mobile payments and measures to prevent mobile "cramming."

    The incumbent is responsible for continually recommending program direction to the Bureau Director and Deputies and for implementing program decisions which involve extremely difficult legal questions and factual issues. Cases under the AD’s jurisdiction have a significant impact upon the operations of all credit companies, leasing organizations, lending institutions and/or motor vehicle dealers throughout the country. Every consumer who purchases goods by using credit is affected by the incumbent's decisions and, therefore, interest in the Division's programs is nationwide. The attorneys in the Division are involved in litigation, matching their skills against widely recognized and expert private legal talent. This requires the incumbent to ensure that staff attorneys are using the most effective legal strategy and techniques in their presentation.

    The AD has continual contact with key Bureau officials in recommending program direction and influencing policy decisions and must maintain effective relationships with a variety of industry, public and private groups, all having different interests and points of view regarding consumer protection activities. Gives speeches to the public and to industry groups to disseminate and discuss Commission policy. As an expert in assigned areas, the AD is called upon periodically to testify before Congress and the Commission to discuss the Division's programs trends in the economy, emerging problems of law violations, proposed legislation, etc.

    Job Requirements

    Qualifications:  Qualified candidates must have knowledge and experience in legal areas relevant to the Commission’s work; and experience in management of complex legal issues including, analyzing complex legal issues and questions of litigation strategy, reviewing pleadings memoranda, and supervising and reviewing the work of attorneys and other staff. 

    Salary Range: $119,554 to $174,100
