Europe economics currently has a vacancies at Consultant level

Europe Economics is currently looking for an economist to join our team at Consultant grade.  To qualify for the position you must have expertise in at least one of the following:

·      applying financial analysis to commercial and regulatory issues;

·      applying competition economics; and

·      conducting economic evaluations of public policy, including technical impact assessments.

As consultant you would get involved in projects for clients in various sectors (we do not have fixed, sector-specific teams) and would be expected to apply a number of analytical techniques.  The opportunity to develop new skills is always present and the development of certain areas of expertise over time is actively encouraged.

You will be expected to manage some projects and also contribute to work generation by lead bidding teams, producing the key substantive methodological concepts or marketing approach that wins work for the company.

Your skills and qualifications

You must have a 3-6 years of relevant experience and should have a very good honours degree and a Masters degree in economics from a top Economics school.  You should also have very strong analytical skills, and be able to intuitively explain economics to non-technical people.  With the work being team based, it is important that you can work well in teams and have strong communication skills.

Relevant experience in consulting, industry, regulatory authorities, government or academia, proven project-management ability, a network of contacts and the potential for winning new business are all highly valued.

The company

Europe Economics is a leading economics consultancy, specializing in economic regulation, competition policy and the application of economics to public policy and business issues.  The firm advises a wide range of clients including government departments, regulators, international bodies (like the European Commission and the European Parliament), law firms, industry associations and private sector companies.  Europe Economics' approach combines the client-focused professionalism of leading law firms and management consultancies with the theoretical rigour of academic research.  Staff develop their technical skills and specialise by 'methods' rather than sectors.  We particularly thrive in projects involving methodological innovation, in advocacy settings (both legal and policy advocacy), in novel sectors and areas of thought, and in projects involving subtle technical challenges.
