Capital Economics looks for capable and highly motivated economists to join the company as trainees. We have a three-year graduate recruitment scheme which offers a unique opportunity to train as an applied macroeconomist. Trainees will benefit from rotations in four different teams in the company and from an internal training programme. They will also be eligible for sponsored study for a Masters degree.

Suitable candidates must have the passion and determination to succeed as applied macroeconomists. They must be able to learn quickly, write clearly and work to tight deadlines.

Successful applicants are likely to be undergraduates in their last year at university, studying economics or a closely related subject. We may also consider candidates who already have a Masters degree in economics or limited work experience. Job offers will be conditional on applicants achieving at least an upper second class degree. Applicants must have the right to work legally in the UK.

Successful applicants will benefit from a competitive salary, as well as excellent on-the-job experience and training.

Graduate recruitment is currently closed for the 2019 graduate training scheme.
The new recruitment process for the 2020 scheme will start in September 2019. Successful candidates will be contacted to arrange an interview.
