Cambridge Econometrics is a leading provider of real-world, evidence-based economic analysis for policy assessment.
We look for people who can provide rigorous, quantitative analysis and deliver it to technical and non-technical audiences with confidence and clarity.
For graduate-entry positions an aptitude for using programming languages in order to handle large data sets and structural models is essential. Our reputation is built upon delivering penetrating insight and therefore to work effectively with clients the ability to digest, interpret and summarise key messages is crucial.
We offer a friendly, supportive and inclusive environment, with a strong commitment to high-quality training and development from day one. At every level of the organisation we like to stretch and challenge our staff so they keep learning and give us the full benefit of their skills and experience.
We welcome applications from candidates from underrepresented groups.
The role involves:
- supporting the project director in interpreting the client’s needs and ensuring that the project deliverables meet those needs;
- liaising with the client to maintain good communication about project progress;
- managing the team, within CE and among external partners, to keep the project to timetable and budget;
- giving feedback within the team to improve the relevance of draft deliverables;
- drafting/reviewing project reports and other deliverables to communicate clearly and immediately the key messages from the quantitative analysis;
- outreach and policy engagement with (potential) clients and partners;
- identifying and developing opportunities for business and drafting tenders.
We are looking for people with knowledge and expertise to manage projects in one of our core business areas, namely: energy, climate and the circular economy.
We are looking for people who have:
- excellent communication skills in English, including the ability to identify and express clearly key messages in language appropriate to policy clients;
- proven project and people management skills;
- a desire to make a difference in the policy areas that form CE’s core business, for this position, energy, climate and the circular economy;
- a keen interest in making evidence-based analysis relevant to the needs of policy makers;
- the academic background and applied experience to communicate effectively and credibly with policy clients and technical project team members (probably a first degree in economics or a related subject at 2.1 or above, and experience working in a relevant environment such as government or consultancy work);
- familiarity with the main features of the economies of Europe;
- the right to work in the EU by the start of their employment.
