Welcome to London!
Currently, about 140 people sit in CRA’s London office. Among the consulting practices represented in London are Antitrust & Competition Economics, Energy, Financial Economics, Forensic Services, Life Sciences, Marakon, and Risk, Investigations & Analytics. The office is full of friendly people who are happy to help with anything you may need.
The junior staff work in an open plan space while senior staff tend to have their own offices. We have a central kitchen stocked with plenty of drinks, snacks, and microwaves. At lunchtime, most practices grab food together and come back to eat in the kitchen with those who bring lunch from home. On the first Wednesday of each month, the entire office eats lunch together – there’s a different theme every time! In the summer months, many people eat lunch or take an afternoon stroll in nearby Finsbury Square.
We are located at 8 Finsbury Circus, and the office is situated between Moorgate and Liverpool stations. Our location is easily accessible via London’s Underground and train lines. Alternatively, many employees walk or bike to work if they live close enough, and there is a cycle dock on Finsbury Circus. The building is accessible 24/7 and is equipped with showers, changing rooms, and storage available on the basement floor.
After work, many people like to head to the gym. The local gym, Nuffield Health, is only a 5 minute walk from the office, and CRA offers a generous discount on membership. On Fridays, however, you can expect London colleagues to head to the pub together to relax and socialize before starting the weekend.
If you’re looking for other ways to enjoy the bustling city of London, take advantage of the Barbican Centre, which is located very close to the office. The Centre hosts a year round variety of concerts, theatre, film, and art exhibitions. Elsewhere in London are world-famous, must-see, and free museums such as the British Museum, V&A, and Tate. The West End is also a popular area and considered the best place in Europe to catch award-winning musicals and plays.
We hope you’re able to work in or visit the London office soon!
