Talented economists with an interest in consulting (mid-level position)

Application deadline: 24/07/2022

We are looking for talented economists with an interest in consulting – who have a master’s degree in economics (or similar) as well as either 2-4 years of relevant work experience and/or a PhD in economics (or similar). You should have a particular interest in microeconomics and/or quantitative analysis. You will be working from one of our offices in Brussels, Copenhagen, Helsinki or Stockholm.

The start date is flexible but should be expected to be around September-October 2022.


Copenhagen Economics is an economic consultancy comprised of a diverse mix of highly skilled economists working together to deliver hard facts and clear stories. We develop economic analysis to support public and private clients in relation to competition cases, policy debates, and impact assessments. Our work is project-based and always tailored to the specific needs of the client.

Copenhagen Economics is one of the leading economics firms in Europe and has for the past 15 years consistently been listed by the Global Competition Review (GCR) as one of the Top 20 economic consultancies in the world.

We are looking for an Economist (a mid-level position) for our Market business unit where we provide support to clients in a variety of different services: Competition, Dispute Support, TMT & Digital, Postal & Delivery and Tender & Auction Support. What unites us is our shared passion for applied microeconomics and industrial organisation.

You will work on a broad range of tasks, including quantitative and qualitative analysis, drafting reports and communicating results to clients, as well as business development tasks (supporting senior colleagues in efforts to sell new projects). Teamwork is a fundamental part of how we operate, and you will have the opportunity to work closely with and learn from experienced colleagues. You will assume important responsibilities from the outset and get the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.

Typical projects could include assessing the extent to which a proposed merger is likely to harm consumers, calculating the over-charge due to a cartel agreement, exploring the consumer benefits and harms associated with a digital platform business model, analysing how a postal operator should set its prices, or designing an auction to allocate a natural resource. Experience with these topics or industries is not necessary but it is an advantage.

Our work environment is international, trustful, and fast-paced. We take great pride in delivering outstanding work but also in having fun in and outside of the office. You can visit our Instagram to get a feel for the work culture.


  • You have a master’s degree in economics (or similar) as well as 2-4 years of relevant experience and/or a PhD in economics (or similar).
    • Relevant work experience could include, but is not limited to, positions at (economic) consultancies, competition authorities, or industry organisations.
    • Please do not apply for this position if you are a recent graduate with a master’s degree, as you will not be considered for this role (but please do keep an eye out for future job postings!).
  • You have a particular interest in microeconomics and/or quantitative analysis.
    • Experience with industrial organisation and/or competition economics is an advantage.
    • Experience with data analysis and modelling in one or several of Excel, R, Python and Stata is an advantage.
  • You are an effective communicator who is passionate not only about producing high-quality analysis but also about conveying it clearly both in writing and verbally (in English).
    • Fluency in other languages, such as a Nordic language or German, is an advantage.
  • You are focused and pragmatic – you understand that the job of a consultant is not always to dig into every detail but to provide valuable analysis and advice in accordance with deadlines and budget.
    • Experience with project management is an advantage.
  • You are curious to learn about a variety of industries and are open to working on different types of projects.
  • You love to solve problems and to help people – both clients and colleagues.
  • You are the kind of person who cannot help but seek out and take ownership of tasks, and you make sure that they are followed through. Sometimes you even remind colleagues to do so.
  • You are available to work from one of our office locations (and can relocate at your own expense, if necessary).
