What your career path could look like

Deni’s journey from a Legal Intern to a Legal Advisor is a testament to his hard work, dedication and the opportunities that come from joining the CMA’s Legal Internship programme.

Deni gained exposure to the practical applications of legal theories and concepts while working on cases under the guidance and support of both delivery and legal experts. This solid foundation of knowledge and skills not only helped shape his career but helped him realise his passion for competition law enforcement. 

The internship opportunity allowed Deni to gain invaluable experience, which he built on to secure a permanent position within the CMA. Today, he continues to grow and develop in his role, shaping his future in the legal field as he advises on some of the most cutting-edge investigations into digital giants.

Merit-based progression, brilliant colleagues, and development opportunities make the CMA a great place to work.
