EMPLOYMENT HISTORY

Company name

Whilst working at the company I have been the principle economist in a wide variety of projects including:

This position has given me the opportunity to develop advanced modelling techniques for both macroeconomic and microeconomic circumstances. I am a senior member of company's macroeconomic forecast team, and produce the company’s international and United Kingdom publications. I write daily press releases on day-to-day economic data releases and each month write an extended press piece that scrutinises macroeconomic events in greater depth.

I have also developed specialist knowledge in the appraisal of transportation and regeneration schemes. Using Treasury Green book guidance, government departmental appraisal methodologies and my own economic knowledge I have built the case for government and private sector funding for schemes across the country.

I have regular client contact in the form of project work, account management and account acquisition. I have built up a number of regular clients who regularly return to me with new and varied projects.
