Job Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for Senior Economist (regulatory & Competition) based with a regulator. You will:

  • Identify the key economic issues.
  • Help develop the analytical framework for addressing those issues.
  • Consider what information is needed to inform the economic analysis, and how that information will be gathered.
  • Provide high quality analysis, including anticipating and considering counter-arguments or different points of view, from others within the organisation and from external stakeholders.
  • Provide clear, well-reasoned drafting, including for documents that will be published.
  • Attend team meetings, governance meetings and meetings with stakeholders.
  • Work with the Principal Economist and/or Economic Director on the project to ensure they are in agreement with the proposed framework and approach, are kept informed of progress and can provide timely comments and guidance on the analysis.

The Successful Applicant

You will have:

  • You will therefore need to have a good grounding in microeconomics, with training in one or more of industrial organisation, public economics or financial economics. 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..
  • Written documents are the norm and to be successful in the Competition Group the ability to communicate written arguments effectively is vital.
  • 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.
  • Experience: 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.

What's on Offer

£50,000 - £70,000 PA DOE plus excellent benefits.
