  • interpreting the client’s needs and designing analysis to meet those needs
  • undertaking quantitative analysis - data handling and visualisation, statistical analysis, econometric estimation, economic modelling and forecasting

  • a keen interest in making evidence-based analysis relevant to the needs of policy makers
  • a proactive, resourceful and creative approach to problem-solving and designing research to meet the client’s needs
  • strong IT skills - an aptitude for using programming languages (to handle large datasets and for computation) is essential
  • familiarity with economic data (such as national accounts) would be an advantage
  • a capacity for both team-working and for working autonomously
  • strong time-management skills
  • excellent research skills and an eye for detail
  • good communication and presentation skills
  • fluency in written and spoken English

Applicants will be required to have the right to work in the EU by the start of their employment.

At every level of the organisation we like to stretch and challenge our staff, so they continue to learn, and develop their skills and experience. In return, we offer a friendly, supportive and inclusive environment, flexible working, and a strong commitment to high-quality training and development from day one.
