The Programme

The Deloitte Graduate Programme is a first step on a professional career with a highly respected firm. It’s a world-class training scheme, as well as a permanent job that’ll earn you a market-leading salary and benefits.

From the moment you join, you’ll be treated as a Business Advisor, valued for the unique contribution you make and the fresh ideas you bring. You’ll work directly with clients on projects that have a very real and meaningful impact on their success. As well as gaining a recognised professional qualification, you’ll develop the kind of rounded business skills that will serve you well regardless of where your future takes you. And you’ll get all the support you need to become the leader you know you can be.

As an economic consultant, you’ll apply microeconomic and macroeconomic theory alongside econometric and financial expertise to provide solutions for business, consumer and regulatory issues facing our clients. Companies, regulators and governments look to us to help them understand economic issues impacting their business and policies, and your economic analysis, modelling and research will ensure you are seen as a trusted advisor in helping them make crucial decisions.

The Opportunity

Economic Consulting work is intellectually challenging and varied, appealing to the brightest and most capable economists. Our team sits within our Financial Advisory business and brings together commercially-minded economists, econometricians and financial analysts to apply their combined skills to clients' business issues.

We deliver real value through areas such as regulatory or competition economics, cost analysis, price optimisation and value profitability analysis. Our technical skills are combined with Deloitte's deep financial, strategic and industry understanding to create a unique package that can be applied across industries.

The Economic Consulting team works for many of the world’s largest companies, including members of the S&P500 and FTSE100. You will get the chance to actively contribute to projects from day one, with early senior exposure and active participation in methodology development and client presentations.
