Opportunities for Outstanding Economists

Positions for Economic Consultants, Senior Economic Consultants, and Divisional Directors

Indecon (Ireland) provides high quality specialist economic and strategic advice to public and private sector organisations in Ireland and internationally. Our clients include government departments, international agencies and commercial organisations. The practice also publishes the Indecon Public Policy Series, and is committed to providing rigorous evidence-based analysis. Independent market research has rated Indecon as the best economic and strategic consultancy practice in Ireland. Indecon economists have worked with Nobel Prize laureates and other leading economists and advise senior officials in the public sector and chief executives in private sector organisations. The Chairman of our Irish practice is Professor D. S. King (PhD DLitt FBA MRIA FRHistS MAE), Professorial Fellow, Nuffield College, University of Oxford.

The practice is part of the Indecon International Consultancy Group which includes London Economics. Internationally the practice has advised clients in over 80 countries and there are potential opportunities for individuals to advise Governments and leading corporates in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and in other countries.

We are now seeking to recruit a number of outstanding research economists and senior policy advisers to join our team at our Dublin office. Candidates should have an exemplary academic record and be educated to a masters degree or PhD level in Economics or a related discipline. Ideal candidates will be focused on applying their exceptional economic skills to policy issues. Candidates should ideally hold first class honours degrees from leading universities in Ireland or internationally. Candidates for senior positions should have significant leadership experience and be able to advise at the highest levels of the public sector and be in a position to advise Boards of Directors in the private sector.

We currently have opportunities at three levels in the firm, namely:

  • Divisional Directors / Assistant Divisional Directors (suitable for very senior candidates with 10+ years' experience)

  • Senior Economic Consultants (suitable for candidates with 4+ years' experience)

  • Economic Consultants (suitable for candidates with 1+ years' experience)

A commitment to applied analytical thinking and evidence-based research to world class standards is essential. Fluency in a number of European languages would be an advantage for some positions but is not an essential requirement.

In return, we will provide a competitive reward package, an exceptionally positive working environment and the opportunity to be part of a team that is contributing to commercial and policy decisions at the highest level. Individuals are valued within the practice and we are committed to ensuring flexibility for our exceptional staff. There are options for remote working or blended working.
