The heavyweight competition teams have been invited to pitch for the high-profile role, after Barclays' former competition adviser, ex-Simmons' partner Peter Freeman, left to join the Competition Commission in August 2004.
The OFT review comes four years after the Competition Commission found that Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds TSB and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) charged excessive prices to small businesses. It recommended measures to increase competition between the big four banks.
