Join our team

Vivid Economics is a fast-growing, values-driven, entrepreneurial, employee-owned business.

We are looking for highly-motivated people with a passion for effecting positive change and a capacity to continuously grow and develop. Vivid is an environment where you can thrive professionally and see the impact of your work, all while putting economics to good use.

We recruit on a rolling basis for most roles, with Graduate recruitment starting in September each year.

We invest in our staff and support their professional development

  • Your development starts with a clear career pathway at Vivid across our six professional levels, with progress laid out step by step across the breadth of analytic, problem-solving, communications and engagement skills
  • That development pathway is achieved day in and day out through stimulating project opportunities, and a management and feedback process that gives you the autonomy to grow as quickly as you can, while supporting you to master the required capabilities
  • This is accompanied by regular meetings with your professional development manager – who advises and coaches you in your learning goals and helps you navigate your progress at the firm – as well as an array of inhouse and external training opportunities
  • We also provide a mentoring system to ensure you have a place to go with questions big or small, and to provide you with extra support during the most challenging points in your career

We care about our staff and support their personal journey

  • We foster a close and vibrant community through regular get-togethers to share ideas and aspirations, as well as social events to share some fun and celebrate
  • We support you in finding your own balance, both through personal check-ins on how you’re doing, and an array of benefits including 43 days of annual holiday, flexible working, and paid family leave
  • We are committed to fostering an open environment for you to bring your full self to work, and we support you in difficult times through paid sick leave and carers leave
  • We encourage all staff to participate in the continual development of the firm – you will have the opportunity to contribute your ideas, and to help put those ideas into place
  • We encourage people to rotate across multiple sectors and capabilities, and to take placements in different locations to expand their range of experience and expertise

Graduates and intern recruitment

  • For graduates, we advertise from the 1st September, with applications being made in two waves between September and December. Wave one applicants are interviewed in October and November, with wave two being interviewed in December and January. The process involves three interviews, during which you will meet members of the team and get to know us.  Successful candidates can then start their role at any point in the next 12 months.
  • For interns, recruitment begins in February each year. A two-stage interview process takes place between March and April, with internships available between April and September for between 6-12 weeks. The recruitment process is closed for 2021, but will reopen in February 2022.


If you are interested in either our graduate roles or a summer internship, please apply via the appropriate vacancy with a covering letter and CV.
