The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau keeps a close watch on the housing market to make sure everyone is properly following regulations, especially since this year brought on a whole new load of rules to abide by. 

Recently, the bureau ordered New Jersey-based Stonebridge Title Services to pay $30,000 for paying illegal kickbacks for referrals.

And at the end of May, Alabama-based RealtySouth had to pay half a million dollars to the CFPB for inadequate disclosures.

But the position for the person behind these investigation is yours for the taking. 

The CFPB announced a new job opening for an investigator, which would pay from $98,000-$149,036. 

The job description reads: 

This position is located in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau,Division of Supervision, Fair Lending andEnforcement. The function of the office is to work in closecoordination with Enforcement Attorneys to developinformation required to support civil and administrativeenforcement actions brought by the Bureau.

But the perks don’t stop at the salary. Additionally, the job includes ten paid holidays, up to 26 days of vacation and 13 days of sick leave each year, accruing to a total of 49 days. 

Meanwhile, as the CFPB searches for an investigator, they continued to be investigated themselves. 

Last week, the House Financial Services Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee subpoenaed two more whistleblowers who alleged they were witnesses to or victims of discrimination and retaliation at the CFPB.
