Why choose Capital Economics?

Our Graduate Training Scheme provides a unique opportunity to train as an economist in a growing and dynamic macroeconomic consultancy whose clients are mainly in the financial sector. We are free from both the constraints of the public sector and the conflicting interests of many private City institutions. During the scheme you will acquire the skills and experience needed to succeed as a professional economist.

A career with Capital Economics will allow you to influence and contribute to the economic debate. Your economic thinking and knowledge will develop rapidly in an intellectually challenging environment.

As our economists are our most valuable resource, we will take your learning and development seriously. You will undertake four rotations lasting six months each, have the opportunity for sponsored part-time study, and benefit from attending our regular internal seminars.

Most importantly, every day you will work closely with highly experienced and skilled economists on issues that are at the forefront of modern economics. By working within a relatively small but global company, you will have the opportunity to make a real difference, to progress quickly and to control the direction of your own career. Many of our graduate trainees have been promoted into senior roles within the company.

Capital Economics is also a sociable place to work. You will have opportunities to participate in activities ranging from sports to quizzes and wine tasting, and to socialise in more informal settings, both with the growing number of young graduate economists and with other colleagues.
