We are at a critical moment in our nation. Americans’ financial lives have suffered tremendously as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the associated economic dislocation, and ongoing racial inequity. These challenges are most acute amongst the most economically vulnerable Americans.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was created for moments like this. Born out of the Great Recession, the CFPB was forged in crisis to vigorously protect America’s consumers. Our mission is to help consumer finance markets work by making rules more effective, by consistently and fairly enforcing those rules, and by empowering consumers to take more control over their economic lives.
Achieving this goal requires vigorous oversight of all applicable Federal laws and the fullest utilization of our legal authorities. We are, therefore, proud to launch an effort to recruit attorneys at all experience levels to join our team. Opportunities are available in multiple Bureau functions and, in appropriate circumstances, we may offer the potential to work remotely.
We also seek to be an agency whose workforce reflects the diversity of the American public. Our work will be most effective when we are able to incorporate a broad range of perspectives. We are, therefore, particularly interested in hearing from a diverse set of candidates with a range of personal and professional experiences.

We must hold accountable companies that break the law and harm American consumers and small businesses during this time of incredible financial stress. To do this, we need the fullest talents and passion of the American public. The Bureau has one of the most remarkable workforces I have ever seen, and I invite you to seize the moment and join us.
