Ed Smith

Associate Consultant

LCP

While many of my friends at university knew exactly what they wanted to be, I simply wanted a job that would challenge me both personally and academically. For this reason, I sought out a highly technical consultancy role.

The Business Analytics and Financial Modelling team stood out to me due to its focus on mathematical modelling and its wide range of clients. New graduates are hands on with all our work from day one, which provides plenty of opportunity to seek out and follow your interests within the team.

After three years in the role, I lead the model development for the Government’s main electricity market forecasting tool. Our modelling is used widely across the industry from evaluating subsidies for renewable power, to assessing whether we are on track to meet our emissions targets. This puts me in regular contact with policy makers and challenges me to adapt our modelling to keep up with an extremely fast-paced industry.

My advice to future graduates... Apply for roles that feel like they’re beyond your comfort zone or where you don’t feel like you’re obviously the perfect fit. Many members of our team applied for a coding-heavy role without knowing how to code! So long as you show an eagerness and ability to learn, that’s all we’re after!
