We support our clients on some of the most interesting, topical and high-profile issues across these areas.

We use our analysis to provide insight into complex situations, giving clients jargon-free opinions and results that can withstand even the closest scrutiny.
We advise across sectors and countries and we are one of the largest economic consultancies in Europe with more than 200 Economists based in our offices in Brussels, Berlin, Cologne, Dublin, London, Paris and Madrid. Owned entirely by our staff, our business attracts the best people and the most interesting work. We go beyond the numbers to find out what’s really going on. Our clients enjoy objective advice, clearly expressed. With our help, they make better decisions and get better results.
What to expect during your internship
We aim to make your time with us as meaningful and interesting as possible. Our typical internships, in all offices, run for 8 to 12 weeks, but we also offer longer internships from 6 to 12 months, typically to those who have already obtained their undergraduate or postgraduate degree.
On the first day of your internship, you will have an induction covering different areas of Frontier and you will receive some basic training on various software packages and programmes that we use. You will also meet your mentor, who has the responsibility for giving you advice, day-to-day guidance and feedback on your performance. You will discuss with your mentor what practices you will work in and what projects you are initially working on.
You will also have a “buddy” – an Analyst who is on hand to answer any general queries you have about Frontier. During your internship you will find yourself working in project teams with Analysts, Consultants and Directors.
You will receive guidance, feedback and support throughout your internship, and we welcome your feedback on us too. After your internship, you can apply to become an Analyst
