Capital Economics

Capital Economics is one of the world’s leading independent economic research companies. Our goal is to provide our clients with original, timely and insightful analysis supported by solid economic thinking. Samples of the sort of work we produce can be found on our website.

We are looking for macroeconomists to join our teams in our London and Singapore offices. We are particularly interested in hearing from economists with experience covering Europe, emerging markets, Japan, commodities or global financial markets. We look for people who are willing to challenge the consensus, who possess strong analytical skills, and who have the ability to express themselves in English with clarity and concision.

The ideal candidate would have:

  • A strong academic background with, at least, a good undergraduate degree in economics.
  • At least two years’ experience working as a macroeconomist within the public sector, a financial institution or a research organisation.
  • Above all, strong writing skills. Most of our output is written, so the ability to structure a written argument in English and express it clearly and concisely is a must. The hiring process includes a writing assessment.

Please send a CV and covering letter to Faith Elliot (recruitment@capitaleconomics.com). Direct applications only please (no agencies).
