Research Assistant (London) - Capital Economics

Recruitment for our Research Assistant position in our London offices is now closed. We next plan to advertise for new positions in the Autumn of 2021 for employment beginning in Summer 2022.

Our one-year industrial placement scheme offers a unique opportunity to be work alongside our macroeconomists across a wide range of geographies and markets.

The role mostly involves data retrieval and analysis and the construction of charts and tables. Once proficiency in these skills has been demonstrated, there will be a chance to play a junior role in the production of research. An aptitude and interest in economics, current affairs and financial markets is essential. Successful candidates will have good attention to detail and the ability to work well under pressure.

Research Assistants benefit from three rotations in the company, covering a wide variety of geographies and markets, and are more than welcome to attend the internal training that forms part of our Graduate Training Scheme (GTS). While there is no guarantee that Research Assistants will be offered a permanent position with Capital Economics, those who enjoy a successful time with us will be assured of an interview if they apply for the GTS. In the past, a number of Research Assistants have returned to the company as permanent employees.

The current incumbents are Jack France, Oliver Byrne and Bradley Saunders, who would be happy to answer any queries. Please feel free to get in touch.
