Students & Graduates

Apply economics to real-world issues

By joining our student or graduate program, you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference from day one, working with and learning from our highly experienced economists.

Your role

From day one, you’ll be an integral part of a project team, collaborating with like-minded individuals, including senior staff, to help clients achieve their objectives.

On a typical project, you might start by familiarizing yourself with client data and background literature to understand their industry and situation, and the relevant economic arguments. Then you could be conducting empirical analysis using software such as Excel and Stata, and drafting reports to summarize your results. Along the way you’ll likely participate in client meetings or calls.

Your development

We will invest in training tailored to your needs, so you benefit from a wide range of learning and development opportunities.

We pride ourselves on being a meritocratic company with a non-hierarchical structure. Our inclusive and inquisitive culture encourages everyone to ask questions, take on new challenges, and develop their career.
