Consultantm - Economic & Financial Consulting
Consultants are involved in the full range of EFC’s work. They may be developing a specialism in a discipline or industry sector.
Consultants are responsible for the delivery of individual workstreams within projects, working alone or with others, and directing, supervising and reviewing the work of less experienced Research Analysts or Associates. Consultants are centrally involved in analysis and the preparation of formal written reports. They are expected to be able to take responsibility for research and other gathering of information; managing and carrying out quantitative, industry and market analysis; and report their findings in a clear, concise and structured way.
Consultants are encouraged to develop a network of professional relationships.
