We have been engaged by a leading global bank (one of our top clients) that is looking to hire an Inflation Economist/Inflation Quant with a strong quantitative background + inflation expertise to join their successful macro research team in London.

The selected candidate will be responsible for forecasting inflation and developing inflation models for developed European markets and our client is looking for someone quite 'quanty' that can jump straight into the role and make an impact.

The primary responsibilities in this role will be focused on maintaining short-term inflation forecasts, as well as medium-term to long-term inflation forecasts for Europe + UK (eg. How is the labour market affecting wage growth and how does this affect inflation? What does Germany's phase 2 energy plan mean for the energy market and inflation in Germany?). This person will also be looking at data releases and what they mean for inflation, as well as writing notes on inflation-related topics.

One of the most exciting parts of this role is that there will be a close link to working with the inflation traders, which means a strong upside for the role, as there will be a very clear link with the business and monetization of the research, given that the research will have the opportunity to directly impact the decisions that the traders make. Additionally, this person will be able to play a key role in contributing to global thought leadership at the bank on global inflation and will be working closely with the Strategists and other Economists across the business globally.

Strong experience with Python is highly desirable, as well as strong experience with inflation modeling.

Our client is happy to consider any strong candidates that come from the sell-side (including independent research houses/IRPs), government organizations (such as BoE) as well as the buy-side, provided they fit the above criteria and experience level well.

  • 3-10 years' experience
  • Relevant experience modeling inflation & building inflation models
  • Strong with Python (Strongly preferred)
  • Macro background, either as an economist or macro quant
  • Strong quantitative background
