  • You excel academically and are either a late-stage bachelor’s or master’s student in economics.
  • You are interested in a combination of the following: industrial organisation, microeconomics, and/or econometrics.
  • You love being a part of a team but can also work independently when needed.
  • You seek out and take ownership of tasks and make sure they are followed through.
  • You have a high work ethic, and you are flexible and effective in your prioritisation of your work.
  • You have strong IT and programming skills, such as Excel, R, Python, Word, and PowerPoint.

Working as a research assistant, you will contribute directly to our daily project work. You will be a part of our competition and dispute support services, where we support clients on a wide range of economic issues. You will get to work across different project types and teams.

You will have a direct impact, working for some of the most influential institutions, organisations, and companies across Europe and beyond. You will develop your skills in applied economics by learning from and working closely with our team of experienced economic consultants. Your tasks will be varied, such as finding and analysing data, presenting and illustrating economic conclusions, and supporting our consultants with the final details of our reports and presentations.

A normal working week constitutes around 20 hours but with two-way flexibility, particularly around exam periods.
