Graduate recruitment is now open for the 2021 graduate training scheme.

Our two-year graduate recruitment scheme offers a unique opportunity to train as an applied macroeconomist.

Capital Economics is looking for capable and highly motivated young economists to join the company as trainees. Suitable candidates must have the enthusiasm 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 will also consider candidates who already have a Masters degree in economics or limited work experience. Applicants should have or expect to achieve a first class degree.

Successful applications will benefit from a competitive salary, excellent on-the-job experience and training, and sponsorship to study for a Masters degree or other qualification.
