Who we are

VVA Brussels is a well-established market, economic and policy consultancy providing top quality advice to the European institutions and private sector clients. Our EU Advisory business is active across a wide range of Directorate General, our core business areas being in internal market and consumer policy, social policy, space and telecommunications, digital and transport, while we are growing practices specifically focused on green deal topics, trade and financial services. We are truly European company, part of a group based in Brussels and Milan with a team of professionals from different academic and national backgrounds. 

What motivates us is our mission to progress the “European project” by helping our clients to: 

  • Anticipate change 
  • Design public policy responses; 
  • Understand how the EU can improve the lives of Europeans, support our businesses and transform our economy and society 
  • Communicate decisions and actions to key stakeholders 

We have a high-profile, expanding project portfolio including regulatory impact and cost assessments, economic and market studies. We currently run projects and framework contracts for DG DEFIS, MOVE, REFORM, GROW, FISMA, COMP, ECFIN, the EXPO committee at the European Parliament and other EU and international institutions. Our success is due to our excellent team of consultants and researchers. We are now looking to strengthen our practice with two Senior Consultants focusing on the following policy areas: economic and market analyses, space downstream, transport and telecoms, and internal market. 

One of the job posts will focus on the development of market and economic analyses and the other one – on evaluations and impact assessments.

  • Experience in writing and winning competitive bids for public-sector clients (a plus) 
  • Management of project teams and coaching of more junior staff 
  • Coordination of desk research campaigns and stakeholder consultations 
  • For candidates targeting market and economic analysis:

  • For candidates targeting evaluations and impact assessments: 
    • Experience in implementing and ideally supporting the design of impact assessment and evaluation methodologies, for European clients;  
    • Good knowledge of the EU Better Regulation Guidelines methodologies for evaluations and impact assessments; 
  • Ability to autonomously coordinate data analysis activities 
  • Sectoral expertise in one of the above indicated policy areas is a plus
