Economic Impact Analyst - London

The Service

Mace have developed an approach that enables project sponsors and clients to get early access to our breadth of our pragmatic and hands-on delivery expertise to bring confidence that proposals are viable. Working within our client’s organisation we prioritise the factors that will deliver success and provide direction on the issues that create reluctance to commit; the most common source of inertia that plagues complex developments.

Within our advisory services team we provide emphasis on risk, uncertainty and value management, governance, collaboration, strategic planning and deliverability, social value, sustainability, commercial and procurement in a configuration that offers advice at the level matched to our client’s needs.

Our full lifecycle delivery capability is at the heart of our business which means our advice will be tailored to establish, evaluate or enhance your end-to-end process or focus on a specific delivery phase as and when you require. The outcome from our advice is highly customisable from an overall strategy proposal to a fully designed operating model ready for implementation.
