Frontier Economics
Application Deadline

We offer our clients innovative and creative ways to solve problems using economics as a foundation. This means we need you to be more than just a talented economist – you should also be an excellent consultant and first-rate communicator with the industry expertise and technical skills to back up your economics.

Our Energy practice works with Europe’s leading energy companies, regulators, governments and investors. We provide economic analysis and clear advice to help our clients achieve commercial success and make better policy and regulatory decisions. Our expertise covers best practice regulation, competition advice, dispute support (whether international or commercial), strategy and policy development and investment / transaction support. We are also at the forefront of the ongoing energy transition to support the development of a low carbon economy, delivering a portfolio of innovative client work to help assess potential future energy solutions. We have worked on energy related issues in more than 50 countries and on all continents.

Position: Economic Consultant - Energy

Location: London

Job type: Full Time, Permanent

Salary: Highly Competitive

Benefits: We are offering a highly competitive salary package plus bonus and benefits. The role will be based in our London office.

About the role:

We are currently looking for an exceptional candidate to join our Energy practice. As an energy economist at Frontier you can expect to work in project teams across the full range of our expertise for both private and public sector clients, and often in relation to high profile industry issues. Project work is likely to be predominantly UK based, but you can also expect to be part of project teams working for clients right across Europe, and some travel may be required.

Some recent work of the practice includes advising:

  • Network companies in relation to the next round of GB regulatory price controls.
  • Investors on a range of transactions across Europe for gas and electricity assets, including renewable technologies.
  • One of the merging parties as it seeks CMA clearance for a proposed high profile energy retail merger.
  • The GB regulator in relation to reforms of electricity network charges.
  • The UK government on its strategy for the use of the gas network as the economy decarbonises.
  • An energy supplier on the impact of the proposed retail price cap and its engagement with the GB regulator.
  • A range of clients about the impact of low carbon technologies such as electric vehicles and renewable heat technologies on the electricity system.
  • The Bulgarian government on two State aid cases in the electricity sector.

About you:

Applicants are required to have experience gained within a government / public authority, consultancy or industry. Previous energy experience is highly desirable. However, we will also consider those who have worked in other areas and have a keen interest to specialise in energy. We expect the successful candidate to have the ability to apply a range of microeconomics tools to policy and business issues. Therefore you should have at least a degree with a main focus in economics or another highly analytical / quantitative discipline.

You will also be able to communicate complex economic arguments in non-technical language, and to build effective working relationships with clients and colleagues.

Our approach is collaborative but we try to never lose sight of the fact we are a team of individuals. We aim to provide you with the flexibility to shape your career to suit your particular needs, providing support to allow you to progress, and systems that are fair and transparent.

You will find that working at Frontier is unlike any other business. All our employees own a share of the company, so we all have a say in how the company is run. Whether you have a flair for marketing or enjoy arranging social events, you will be actively encouraged to get involved and to put forward your ideas. This could be in designing our training programmes, supporting our recruitment activity or being part of our events teams, to name just a few.

Our open-plan offices reflect our inclusive and open culture. From Directors to Interns, we all sit together. Our supportive and friendly environment means you can ask for advice or bounce ideas off colleagues whenever you need to.

You may have experience of the following: Economic Advisor, Economist, Commercial Analyst, Business Economics, Economic Consultant, Regulatory Affairs, Regulatory Consultant, etc.
