I joined LCP in 2013 and I certainly haven’t looked back since. Having studied Mathematics and Statistics at university, I was looking for a job where I could apply my technical skills in a consulting role and that’s exactly what I’ve found here. Straight after joining, I started the structured graduate training programme which has really developed both my technical and interpersonal skills and has also been a really great way to get to know the other graduates in the firm.
In the Business Analytics department we combine economic arguments with mathematical and statistical modelling techniques to help solve complex business problems. Recently our client work has focused around the GB Electricity Market and in particular, government policies in the industry. We work very closely with the government to help them design their policies and then with large energy companies to help them adapt to the policies when they come in. Internally, we build cutting edge models for the other departments in LCP to use in their fields and these models are really important to LCP’s business. This combination means that our work can vary from working on an online model used to value pension liabilities, to analysing the economic impacts of future energy policies. We are a small but rapidly growing department within LCP which means there are great opportunities to take on responsibility early on and from day one you’ll get to work closely with all members of the department, from graduate to partner.
There is also much more to LCP than the work. As a department, we have regular socials which vary from after work events like bowling, to team weekends away. We also have a social committee who organise regular socials for the whole firm which is a great way to socialise with people outside of the department. Just after joining we had the LCP ball which was held in a hotel in Marylebone and coming up is the summer party in London zoo!
