What Are We Offering? – Graduate Recruitment | Capital Economics

Our Graduate Training Scheme holds several attractions:

These are likely to include at least one developed economy (the US, UK, euro-zone, Japan or Australia and New Zealand), at least one emerging market region (likely to be Emerging Asia, Emerging Europe, Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa or Latin America), global financial markets, and the economics of either property or commodities. During each rotation, you will contribute to the regular output of the service.
  2. Subject to satisfactory progress in the first year, Capital Economics will fund you in full to undertake part-time study for a Masters degree in economics, economic history or a professional finance qualification. This is likely to be during evening classes, allowing you to work for the company during the day, though you will also get study leave during the university terms and prior to exams. Your studies usually begin after twelve months with the company.
  3. Regular internal economics master classes run by our experienced staff. These will cover practical skills, such as forecasting techniques, as well as economics knowledge, such as an assessment of quantitative easing or the historical experience of sovereign debt restructuring.
  4. A competitive starting salary with the potential for a performance-related annual bonus and for rapid salary progression after completion of our scheme.
  5. After completion of the four six-month rotations, would become a fully-fledged member of one of the teams.
