    We are looking for exceptional people to join our graduate programme as Graduate Analysts in 2019 and based in our Shanghai office. 


    The Graduate programme

    If you would relish working in a high growth and fast paced client focused business, helping healthcare organisations solve a range of business challenges, our graduate programme could be the right fit for you. You will be able to make a real impact here and the EIU through working on a range of projects which will challenge you and build your knowledge and skills at pace. Throughout the year long programme we will give you exposure to a variety of different projects as well as exposing you to our other consulting businesses and the wider EIU. You will meet, work with, and be mentored by our industry leading economists and consultants.

    Programme Synopsis

    The 12 month programme kicks off with a four-week induction to give you an overview of the fundamentals of consulting and the healthcare industry, followed by a number of structured rotations across the different consulting teams, which are led by our experienced Principal consultants.

    Throughout your time on this programme, you will be continuously mentored so that you have the necessary support and guidance to fully develop your knowledge and skills; you will have monthly check-ins with a more senior consultant who will help you consolidate these new capabilities. When you graduate from our programme you will be deployed into one of our teams, either in Singapore or one of our other global offices, depending on your own aspirations and the needs of the business.

    The programme, while intensive, is rewarding and you will be part of a culture which is supportive and nurturing. We are seeking future consulting leaders and therefore we will develop and support you continuously.

    Once you complete the programme you will have the ability to progress quickly in our business. You will first become comfortable with our analysis frameworks and methodologies as well as mastering a range of more technical consulting skills. As you progress from Analyst to Associate you will begin to develop your client presentation and project management skills. As you move from senior associate towards principal we will help you become proficient in managing our client accounts and developing new business for us. We want you to progress quickly so will focus on ensuring you have the right skills at each stage.
