An Introduction to working at Oxera

Dr Helen Jenkins
Economics is alive

It is a vital and dynamic discipline that is constantly evolving, redefining and reimagining how business, regulators and governments can operate. Choosing a career in our sector begins with an interest in how the world works and a desire to have an impact on it.

Our most successful candidates combine great intellect and a desire to solve the toughest challenges. They seek reward beyond compensation alone, and enjoy being part of something bigger, something more compelling.

Why economics?

We’re entering a golden age of economics, with business, governments and regulatory bodies turning to our brightest economists to analyse, advise and innovate on their behalf.

The economics consultancy sector offers truly rewarding careers with
superb growth and development opportunities—for generalists
and specialists. The impact you have on the world around you is
both immediate and substantial. And it connects to so many other
disciplines, such as finance, policy, business and law. Pretty much
every aspect of contemporary life is affected by economics.

Skilled economists, great communicators

Compelling economics requires first-class people—we welcome the best minds who can present insightful ideas with confidence. You will need exceptional technical capabilities, a strong teamwork ethic and the intellectual curiosity to get to the crux of the issue.
