About Our Client

Major Economic Regulator

Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an Economist (Regulatory & Competition). As part of the economics team within the Competition Group, you will help ensure our policies have a sound economic foundation and deliver a real, long term impact in what is an increasingly important and dynamic sector for consumers and companies. You will work collaboratively with other economists, as well as lawyers, technical experts, accountants and policy specialists.

The Successful Applicant

You must be able to show a good understanding of microeconomics and have experience in applying it. With training in one or more of industrial organisation, public economics or financial economics desirable. Typically this will be through a degree in economics or, preferably, a post-graduate qualification (such as an MSc or a PhD with relevant specialisms).

You will need to be able to apply your knowledge of microeconomics to new situations. You need to be able to identify the key economic issues and the best framework for considering them. Working with the rest of your project team, you will define workable solutions, which will often require new and creative approaches.

Quantitative analysis supports most of our decisions, so you need to be experienced in interpreting information, and have good attention to detail. Experience of using or developing spreadsheet models is desirable but not essential for Economic Advisor candidates; essential for Economic Modelling Advisor candidates.

You will need to demonstrate that you have past experience of applying economics, preferably in regulation or competition policy. This will typically have been gained through working at a consultancy, at another regulator or competition authority, or even at a regulated company.

£35,000 - £48,000 PA DOE plus excellent benefits.
