Director’s Financial Analyst

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is recruiting this fall for the Director’s Financial Analyst position, and hiring for positions that begin in July 2021, and Class of 2021, 2020, and 2019 graduates are eligible to apply.

This unique, two-year rotational fellowship sits at the intersection of the federal government and the financial services industry. Director’s Financial Analysts are given the opportunity to hone analytical and problem-solving skills while helping to make markets for consumer financial products work for Americans. Members of the Director’s Financial Analyst Program will experience diverse roles, responsibilities, and areas of expertise. As a result, in a short period of time, analysts will play an integral role in everything the Bureau does, from rigorous data-driven policy creation and market monitoring to on-site supervision of market participants.

All analysts will complete developmental rotations in offices throughout the CFPB. These rotations are designed to provide exposure to the analysis, strategy, research, education, policy development, supervision, enforcement, and rulemaking activities throughout the Bureau. We are recruiting for positions that begin after the 2020-2021 academic year.

Director’s Financial Analysts have used the program to develop their professional skills and grow their public service networks within a collaborative cohort environment. Alumni of the DFA program have moved on to graduate programs (e.g. Stanford Law, Princeton MPP, Dartmouth MBA), public sector opportunities (e.g. DC city government, Federal Reserve Banks), private industry, and other divisions within the CFPB.
