CRA’s European Competition Practice specialises in providing economic advice on matters of competition policy and regulation.

We assist firms and their legal advisors in all types of competition proceedings: firms considering merger and acquisition opportunities or involved in merger control proceedings; and firms undergoing investigations relating to cartels, restrictive commercial agreements, abuse of dominance or state aid. We also provide advice to firms involved in regulatory proceedings and sector inquiries. We offer assistance on the estimation of effects and damages in cartel cases, international arbitration and intellectual property disputes.

We have a reputation for rigorous and innovative economic analysis, careful attention to detail, and the ability to work effectively as part of a wider team of advisors. From Airtours to GE/Honeywell, Tetra/Sidel, Oracle/PeopleSoft, Ryanair/Aer Lingus, TomTom/Tele Atlas, Microsoft and Intel, we have played a key role in many of the cases that have shaped European competition policy in recent years. We have also been involved in major cases before the competition authorities of the Member States, and in South Africa.

Recruitment for the Analyst positions takes place between October and January, for candidates looking to begin in September 2016. We have a limited number of positions for applicants with a strong undergraduate degree in economics, but no further qualifications.

We recruit a few graduates to the position of Economic Analyst. Analysts assist with cases, particularly with data work and industry research, as well as with general research and information management tasks. These positions are ideally suited to a candidate considering post-graduate study, but who would appreciate a year’s employment experience and an insight into the world of economic consulting before returning to university.

Candidates should have (or expect to obtain) a good first degree in economics, and a strong background in microeconomics, preferably with a particular interest in industrial economics. Numeracy and the ability to manipulate data and write clearly are also important. Candidates should be able to demonstrate the personal qualities that make a successful consultant.

Applicants should apply by means of a full curriculum vitae and covering letter, which should be submitted as attachments in an email to our European Competition Practice recruitment coordinator Victoria Goddard. Please detail in your cover letter why you are interested in the Analyst role at the European Competition Practice.
