Deloitte Access Economics - Economist


Part research. Part strategy. You are sure to grow your economic and policy skills at Deloitte by working on the most pressing issues facing the Western Australian economy.

What will your typical day look like?

You are a systematic yet creative economist, who loves using a variety of quantitative and qualitative analytical frameworks, models and techniques to assess economic issues. You will capture your findings in reports and craft compelling presentations to influence key decision makers in the nation's largest commercial organisations and Government.

In terms of the nitty-gritty you will be involved in:

  • economic contribution and impact studies;
  • cost-benefit analysis;
  • business case development;
  • program evaluations;
  • feasibility assessments.

About the team

Join Australia’s largest team of economists in delivering rare insights to help public and private sector organisations plan for the future. We offer economic and policy advisory services to clients across government and the private and not-for-profit sectors, and pride ourselves on providing the highest calibre analysis and advice. Every single day with Deloitte Access Economics (DAE) is different.

In the Perth team (within DAE), we work across a variety of industry sectors and offer services including business case development, cost benefit analysis, economic impact assessment and program evaluation. For example:

  • We are preparing the business case and cost benefit analysis for the proposed new rail line to the fast-growing suburb of Ellenbrook in Perth’s north east
  • We are measuring the economic impact of Perth’s new Optus Stadium to the economy of WA
  • We undertook an assessment of the State’s finances during the resources boom in support of the Langoulant Inquiry into programs and projects
  • We estimated the economic value of Surf Life Saving WA’s services to the WA community.

Enough about us, let’s talk about you.

You will have two to five years’ experience as an economist, researcher or policy advisor, potentially in consulting or specialist economic agencies within the Australian or State Governments (such as Treasury or the RBA).

You will bring a combination of the following skills, attributes and experiences to our team:

  • demonstrated skills and work history in research, economics and policy analysis
  • high level conceptual and critical thinking skills
  • experience working with Excel is essential, while some experience with statistical programs such as EViews or R would be beneficial
  • familiarity with infrastructure projects, including business case development and cost benefit analysis, is desirable but not essential
  • ability to develop and implement research methodologies, including consultations, survey design and data analysis
  • desire to work in a fast-paced and influential project team environment
  • tertiary qualifications in economics, finance, mathematics, public policy or related disciplines, with strong academic results.

We know that at the intersection of diversity and inclusion lies an area rich with fresh, innovative ideas and creativity – which drives a better employee experience and ultimately – better outcomes. Respect and inclusion are our core values and we encourage applications from diverse candidates, including people with disability. We are also happy to discuss alternative arrangements if the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated.
