Scandinavian Countries Economist. Nordic Countries Economist.
Posted on Jan 17, 2019 by Daniel Recruitment Ltd
Prestigious macroeconomics Consultancy is currently seeking to recruit a talented Economist with a good track record and a proven understanding of any of the various Scandinavian Countries economies, although, emphasis being on Sweden and Norway.
Run the Nordic Countries Service, produce forecasts for the relevant economies and explain your views to clients and the press.
Monitor developments in the economies and financial markets of, primarily, Sweden and Norway closely, plus any of the other Nordic countries.
Try to identify where consensus expectations for policy and for key economic and financial indicators are wrong and make some interesting calls.
Produce frequent pieces of written analysis. At one end of the spectrum, this would include responses to data releases and policy decisions, which are sent to clients very soon after the event. At the other, you would be writing on themes that are likely to shape these economies and influence their financial markets over several years.
Contribute to the research on the euro-zone when time permits.
You would be encouraged to build your own profile, including through media appearances, and to take an interest in the commercial success of the Nordic Countries Service.
The ideal Candidate would also have:
A strong academic record with a postgraduate degree in economics or a closely related subject.
At least five years' experience working as an Economist at a financial institution, a research organisation, or within the public sector. Some understanding of European economies is essential and previous experience covering the Nordic Countries would be a major advantage.
Strong writing skills. Most of their output is written, so the ability to structure a written argument in English and express it clearly and concisely is a must. The hiring process includes a writing assessment.
Good career and promotion prospects.
Salary is commensurate with experience
