This unique, two-year rotational fellowship sits at the intersection of the federal government and the financial services industry. Designed to engage recent college graduates in meaningful public service work, Director Financial Analyst’s (DFAs) are given the opportunity to hone analytical and problem-solving skills while helping to ensure all households have access to markets for consumer financial products and services that are fair, transparent, and competitive.
As a DFA, you will complete two year-long developmental rotations in different divisions across the CFPB. These rotations are designed to provide exposure to the analysis, strategy, research, policy development, supervision, enforcement, and rulemaking activities taking place across the agency. In a short period of time, DFAs will play an integral role in everything the CFPB does, from rigorous data-driven policy creation and market monitoring to supervision of market participants.
