Economics Consultant

About AlixPartners

AlixPartners is a leading global business advisory firm of results-oriented professionals who specialise in creating value and restoring performance at every stage of the business life cycle.  We thrive on our ability to make a difference in high-impact situations and deliver sustainable, bottom-line results.

The Investigations, Disputes & Risk practice provides independent and objective critical thinking to help companies and their stakeholders address high-stakes disputes, litigation, and investigations. Our clients include an array of organisations and their legal counsel, who turn to us for assistance with expert testimony, valuation models, and financial and economic analyses. You will work in highly skilled, purpose-built teams with experienced accounting, economics, and financial professionals, enabling you to enrich your knowledge and develop your long-term career objectives.

Our Economics Consulting Practice

We provide economics-based insights, empirical analysis and expert evidence and testimony. We have worked on high-stakes competition and regulatory cases in dozens of countries and have helped world leading firms with complex commercial issues.

Examples of our work include:

  • representing Visa in High Court litigation on interchange fees and in the European Commission investigation into inter-regional interchange fees;
  • representing PING in its appeal to the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal of a decision by the Competition and Markets Authority. The case involved vertical restraints, specifically an online sales ban relating to custom-fitted golf clubs;
  • supporting Peugeot in the automotive bearings cartel damages litigation at the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal;
  • providing economics support to a range of North-West European energy majors in contract disputes; and
  • advising eir, the Irish telecoms operator, on its strategy regarding a government tender for rural superfast broadband rollout.

We offer our clients a wide range of economics-based advice, drawing on the skills of colleagues outside the Economics team, who are industry authorities, forensic accountants and data analytics experts. This means you will get to work on diverse projects in collaboration with members of other teams.
We also regularly work with high-profile academic advisors to ensure that our analysis reflects the latest insights in the academic literature and employs state-of-the-art empirical techniques.

Job Summary

We are seeking highly-motivated entry-level economists interested in a full-time position in our London office.  All candidates are required to have excellent knowledge of Microeconomics, in particular Industrial Organisation, Advanced Microeconomics or Econometrics.

We will provide you with opportunities to take your economics and econometrics skills from the lecture theatre to the boardroom and courts. You will work alongside our highly-experienced economists as a valued member of the team.

As a new joiner, you will bring fresh insights on complex and meaningful cases, while learning about what really matters to our clients. From the beginning, you will be working face-to-face with clients: all members of our team are client facing - not just spreadsheet facing!  

With the support of senior colleagues, you will be able to improve your skills and deepen your understanding of economics, so that you can deliver influential work and progress on your own merit.

Background and qualifications

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • A post-graduate degree, either Master’s or PhD, in Economics or Econometrics; preferably with a focus on industrial organization, microeconomics, or applied econometrics.
  • A mix of analytical rigour, the ability to apply economic theory to a wide range of practical problems, and strong communication skills.
  • An intellectually curious, pragmatic, and results-focused approach, with the ability to operate on a range of local and international engagements.

Additional Information

  • We are a European practice, so this role may involve working for short periods at other AlixPartners’ UK and European offices and providing assistance at client sites, both in the UK and abroad. Flexibility will therefore be required.

We are an equal opportunities employer. All applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, age, protected veteran status or status as an individual with disability.
