Genesis Analytics Competition & Regulatory Economics Analyst Graduate 2021

Location: Hyde Park

Description: Genesis Analytics is seeking a Competition & Regulatory Economics Analyst Graduate. 

As part of a young and dynamic team, you will assist us in providing economic analysis on high-profile matters that shape the future operations of our clients and the industries in which they operate. 

You will work alongside leading competition economists that have provided independent expert economic testimony in many of South African’s landmark competition cases. 

You will also work with the country’s top legal teams and high-level decision makers in both business and public office. The exposure you will get to the inner workings of a wide cross-section of industries means that no two projects are ever the same.
