Professional Economists are unusual people. That means it’s hard for employers to find them, yet equally difficult for the individual to find the right post. That’s why since 2002 we’ve made this very specialist sector our complete focus. We’re here to bring together the best people with the best opportunities. It’s a focus that’s worked for candidates, employers – and for us – for more than ten years. More about us

What our clients say

google We measure the success of our recruitment advertising by the quality of responses and in this case, through advertising on, we received a fantastic response from quality candidates.

bbcWe recently used EconomistJobs in order to advertise 3 vacancies. We originally booked a 30 day advert for each vacancy, but after just two weeks, we were in a position to remove the adverts, as we had received a tremendous response – many of which were from highly suitable candidates… We have since invited the most suitable applicants for interviews and found excellent people for each of the 3 roles.
