Our offer to you…
Be part of the world’s leading professional services network and enjoy the benefits that come with that. You’ll work directly with big name clients where you’ll get to grips with the value they’re looking for by getting into the detail. We’ll provide an environment where you’ll be able to explore new opportunities, to help you grow and find your niche. And we’ll give you access to be best learning and development around.
You’ll advise high-profile, senior-level clients in the public and private sectors, using the best insights and evidence we can gather. Your work will address the most complex business and policy issues facing our clients: navigating competition and state aid investigations and commercial disputes; designing and implementing market reform; and developing strategies for growth.
Our Economics Consulting practice:

What you’ll do
You’ll get involved in a wide range of projects and each one is different. Our clients will typically set an ‘exam’ question for you to consider and you’ll spend time, as a team, framing the question in greater depth. You’ll help to give them a clearer picture of what success looks like, how to value it, and advise them on how to achieve it.
Examples of projects you could work on include: advising a large financial bank of a developing country on reforming its financial sector; Assisting a client with understanding the impact of implementing an EU-wide e-Privacy Directive into UK law; advising a major port on its strategy for setting charges, given the commercial dynamics of the sector; preparing cost of capital estimates for a leading financial services company’s activities across a number different countries; undertaking independent expert assessment of competition in telecoms and its contribution to GDP in an developing country.
