Economists

by Juma Mzuri  |  at  12:45 AM

When you join the Civil Service as an Economist, you can expect the unexpected. That’s because we’re at the forefront of devising, shaping and reviewing policies that will benefit the nation, promoting economic prosperity and driving opportunities for everyone who lives and works in Britain. It’s a fast-paced environment, in which our people are encouraged to think creatively and to work collaboratively to produce great results. With the support of colleagues across the division, we underpin key government issues with the evidence needed to ensure the best decisions are being made. And at a time in which multiple policies will be affected by the UK’s impending exit from the European Union, that work has never been more crucial.
We are delighted to be recruiting a number of high priority roles within the Department for Trade (DIT) and The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS). Within the DIT, your input will therefore have an impact on how Britain trades with the rest of the world, while a role in the DCMS will see you being involved in issues affecting tourism, sport and leisure, plus the cultural, creative, digital, media and communications industries.
In the Department for International Trade, we are seeking:
  • Trade Disputes, Market Access & Trade Remedies Economist – providing analytical input into the design and delivery of the UK’s trade remedy policy framework and the economic significance of market access barriers faced by UK exporters, your findings will affect how the UK resolves trade disputes and the ultimate success of British businesses.
  • Office for the Chief Economist – coordinating our approach to how the UK economy will fare in a changing world and preparing for any future economic challenges, you will ensure any resulting analysis has an impact on departmental policies and decisions.
  • Head of Regional Analysis G7 – using your knowledge of capability building, economic modelling and business forecasting, you will support Geohub and Trade Commissioners and oversee all country and framework analysis.
  • Regulatory Economist – establishing the department’s regulatory unit, you will affect Regulatory Impact Assessments across the DIT by advising on the parliamentary regulation framework surrounding UK trade policy. You will also provide scrutiny over economic modelling and forecasting.
  • Sector Analyst – within the Central Analysis Overseas Network Analysis team, you will lead the creation of a program of analysis to support our Trade Commissioners and overseas posts. Developing the skills of the team, you will also incorporate academic research into outputs wherever possible.
In the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), we are seeking:
  • Cyber Security Economist – supporting the work of the Cyber Security team, you will build evidence, identify gaps and commission research to further team objectives, guide policy development, support organisations in improving their cyber security and steer communications campaigns.
  • Trade Economist – analysing trade policy and future deals, you will take responsibility for developing the evidence base related to specific countries in key DCMS sectors. The data, evidence and economic theory that you produce will form priorities for trade policy and the negotiation of any trade deals.
Remaining abreast of developments in economic theory and practice, you will have a good grasp of the economics relevant to the post you are applying for. Coming from a background in which you applied economic analysis or research to complex projects, your knowledge will be supported by a minimum of a 2:1 degree (with at least half the modules in economics) or a Masters in economics. Able to translate your findings and guidance into formats that can be easily understood by a number of audiences – including senior personnel such as Ministers and non-economists – you will have the ability to champion the work of the department. Project and people management skills are also essential, as you will develop the skills of others and identify areas that are open to development, and you will come up with workable solutions to complex challenges.
In return for your commitment to these fast-paced departments, we will reward you with an exceptional work/life balance. With access to the types of projects that generate a great deal of media and public interest, our employees enjoy a progressive environment in which ideas and resources are shared, and creativity is encouraged. Supported by ongoing training and development opportunities, you’ll have all the support you could possibly need to achieve your aspirations in a role that is undeniably career-defining. You will also benefit from a generous benefits package plus flexible working options – and the scope to make a genuine difference to the wellbeing of the UK.
If you want to be instrumental in securing the future success of key British industries, and you have the ability to work in a fast-paced environment, then we’d love to discuss how you could fit into these forward-thinking teams. Visit the CS Jobs website or get in touch with us on priority.recruitment@csresourcing.gsi.gov.uk to find out more.
Closing date: 17 December 2017.
