Creating international opportunities for economic growth

London

£34,053 inclusive of London weighting

Two-year fixed term, with possibility of one-year extension

Joining the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) as an economist means making a real difference to the world. We ensure the UK’s foreign policy, prosperity agenda and relations with established and emerging powers are grounded in a good understanding of economics. We also raise awareness of economics and build economic capability throughout the FCO.

We currently have two new high-profile roles for Economists, one to work on a set of trade-focused aid projects supported by the Prosperity Fund, and one to lead Africa analysis in our Economics Unit. This is an opportunity to hone your expertise at the heart of policy development and programme activity.

We’ll expect you to deliver specialist, high-quality economic analysis and contribute to briefings for Ministers and senior officials. That means building strong relationships with partners across different government departments, fellow economists across the FCO including our overseas offices and other external stakeholders. You will also work alongside delivery partners to ensure they produce the highest quality results with the greatest possible impact.

In addition to a good knowledge of micro and macroeconomics, it’s important you have a good understanding of development or international economics and can hit the ground running in a fast-paced environment. You will however, have a degree in Economics and, quite possibly, a Masters degree too. A good knowledge of cost benefit analysis and assessing value for money is critical. The ability to explain economic concepts in a non-technical way to senior stakeholders is important, so strong communication skills are essential.

Security clearance is required for these roles.
