Frontier Economics

Application Deadline

We are recruiting Managers to join our Competition practice. Our Competition team works closely with clients and legal counsel, providing a mix of strategic advice and technical support. We assist in pre-empting issues, in producing and responding to technical analysis, in preparing client submissions and expert reports and in giving oral evidence. The latest examples of our work can be found here.

We are looking for talented team players, with specialised skills and valuable expertise, who have a desire to advance their career. As an experienced hire, your responsibilities will include:

  • Overseeing the quality of analytical outputs within pre-determined project tasks.
  • Managing projects spanning a range of sectors/issues/clients.
  • Applying best practice project management principles throughout a project.
  • Leading project initiation with clients, communicating team roles clearly and ensuring clients understand and agree our brief and deliverables.
  • Overseeing the quality and sound financial management of projects.
  • Providing clear guidance to team members on all aspects of the project including required outputs.
  • Delivering outputs in an appropriate format: outputs that are well written, persuasive, fit for use, and timely.
  • Maintaining close relationships with existing clients in the course of project work and beyond.
  • Delivering Frontier-wide activities e.g. speaking at seminars and conferences, running roadshows, client events, developing marketing materials, writing bulletins.
  • Providing timely 360 degree feedback on work undertaken across project, remit or practice work, feedback in a clear and transparent way.
  • Providing support and guidance to colleagues.
  • Pro-actively identifying things that would make Frontier better.

Although this role will predominantly focus on Competition related projects, we strongly encourage all of our Economists to work across Frontier’s different practice areas – that is, to be ‘fungible’. Fungibility benefits both individuals and the firm as a whole, and we believe it is core to maintaining our values and our culture.

In addition to stimulating and thought-provoking project work, we offer numerous benefits to support you inside and outside of work. All employees have access to numerous Learning & Development opportunities including ongoing Career Development Reviews with the support of an allocated Mentor.

We understand the importance of work/life balance and offer flexible working arrangements. Our hybrid working model means we expect most people to combine coming into the office with working remotely, either from home or elsewhere. We are encouraging a 60:40 split either way, with a full-time colleague typically being in the office 2-3 days a week. How you split your time will depend on the meetings in your diary, projects you may be working on, the time of the role etc - we want you to be able to embrace the flexibility while thinking about what works best for The Company, Your clients and You. In addition we provide 28 days annual leave with the option to purchase an additional 10.

Frontier is entirely owned by its employees. As Shareholders, we encourage everyone to put forward their views. Not only do we influence how the company is run but we choose to distribute as much of our profits as is prudently possible through bonuses. In addition we offer a highly rewarding salary. If you would like to become part of our team, we are interested in meeting candidates who can demonstrate:

Intellectual leadership: Experienced economists who can deliver rigorous insight and analysis, effectively utilising the resources available within the firm, including themselves, colleagues and external resources.

Consulting skills: Managers who can deliver high quality, insightful and timely advice to clients, taking full account of their requirements; including strong project management skills to adapt as projects progress, plus strong communication and client handling skills.

Client relationships: Open individuals who can develop and maintain strong relationships with clients and collaborators, and potential clients.

Internal leadership: A strong communicator who can ensure sound financial management of projects and development work. As senior members of the firm, Managers own all of the firm's policies and processes and must be able to communicate these clearly to all members of staff.

Contribution to Frontier values: A genuine interest in identifying and developing opportunities to make Frontier a better place to work.

We are currently accepting applications to our Cologne and London offices on a rolling basis. Please be mindful that for applications to Cologne you must be fluent in German. 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. It is desirable for candidates to have prior economic consulting experience.

Should you have any questions or would like any additional information please email We are looking forward to receiving your application.
