Eunomia Research & Consulting is an independent environmental consultancy working primarily in the fields of waste management, resource efficiency, low carbon energy, marine planning, natural capital and climate change mitigation. We employ over 80 members of staff and have offices in Bristol, London, Manchester, Fife, Brussels, Athens, Copenhagen, New York and Auckland. From these offices, we work throughout the UK, across EU Member States, in the USA and Canada, and in a range of other countries.

We are at the leading edge of a number of areas of environmental policy which are important in the eyes of governments, and we aim to be influential in the public policy sphere, working with both public and private sector clients.

The Economist role will be involved in project delivery across a truly wide range of projects and thematic areas. Tasks may include supporting companies, governments and local authorities in developing their policies, or informing their investment decisions, in respect of, for example, the most sensible delivery model for waste operations, on carbon mitigation plans, or in respect of business cases for investment in new equipment. Tasks may arise in the context of ex ante assessment of proposed EU or UK policy proposals, the development of regulatory impact assessments, or business case analysis as part of due diligence work. Relevant knowledge and experience would include analysis of private financing mechanisms, public private partnerships and international funding mechanisms (EIB, EU funding and World Bank funding impacts).

We would not expect the successful candidate to have relevant expertise in all thematic areas in which we work, but would expect demonstrable and relevant expertise in a number of areas of economic analysis, with the ability to learn quickly about our work, and apply existing knowledge in new ways. Our main focus is that you are able to draw upon a range of tools from within the economic discipline than can be applied in the examples above, along with the flexibility and ability to apply these tools to new situations and contexts. We are looking for someone who thinks creatively, and appreciates the need to spend wisely in delivering environmental improvement.
