Life of an Analyst

Hugh joined Frontier in 2016 and talks us through his application process, the types of projects he's worked on and life at Frontier. 

The Frontier community

We’ve successfully established ourselves in the major economic, political and business centres of Europe, with offices in Berlin, Brussels, Cologne, Dublin, London, Madrid and Paris.

We are a tight-knit community. We work collaboratively, support each other, and regularly get together to share ideas, for training sessions and social events, or for just a general catch up.

We encourage people to take placements in other offices, increasing their range of experience and knowledge.

What it’s like to work here

From day one, you’ll be a key member of the team – sharing your ideas and learning fast.

You’ll be contributing ideas, presenting your work and meeting clients and colleagues from all over Europe.

Our work is intellectually challenging and ranges across many issues, disciplines and borders. That’s why we all work together to deliver effective results for our clients.

Learning and developing as an economist

Our people are our business. We know that every individual’s happiness, stimulation and fulfilment is vital to our success as a company.

We offer a rotation scheme for analysts to work across each of our practice areas when starting out. Learning from others outside of our immediate areas of expertise is important for us all. It helps us to think through problems in different ways, and to be versatile.

There is mentoring and support from more senior economists for the whole of your career at Frontier - everything you need to drive your career in the direction you want it to go.

The Frontier culture

It’s the unique way we are owned and run by the people who work here that makes us different.

Everyone is encouraged to contribute their ideas. All employees have the opportunity to say how things should be run and how we can put those ideas into practice. If you think you’d be good at planning an event, do it. Maybe you think you’d be a good trainer – go for it.

Working at Frontier is as much about being open as it is about being smart. Curiosity and open-mindedness is as valuable as in-depth knowledge.
