Whether you are still at, or about to be leaving, university or you have been applying economics professionally for some years, we are always interested in hearing from first-class economists seeking a career in consulting.
We look for the best and brightest to join our team. If you want to work in a dynamic, collaborative environment at the forefront of contemporary economic problems, where opportunities are offered, skills are expanded and excellence is rewarded, you might be exactly what we are looking for.

HoustonKemp is not about organisational charts and hierarchies — rather, we operate with a flat structure with abundant cross-learning opportunities, with engaged seniors offering guidance and mentorship.
We recognise good work and reward our economists with excellent growth opportunities as well as highly competitive remuneration packages. The energy, skills and dedication of our staff are our most important asset.
Critical to our success is recognition of the importance of life beyond the office and we encourage our staff to strike a work/life balance that works for them.
