Following my completion of MESCI X I was offered an internship at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) here in Bangkok, specifically working with the Macroeconomic Policy and Development Division. This involved working closely with senior economists, applying the knowledge gained through MESCI to a variety of economic and development issues in the Asia-Pacific region. After the successful completion of my internship I was offered a temporary position as a Development Policy Consultant, working on research and policy issues to contribute towards The 2013 Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific, ESCAP's flagship annual publication. After MESCI I worked for UNESCAP/ILO as an intern/Consultant. I then returned to the UK where I worked as an advisor to the Parliament (House of Commons) on UK international development policy. I now work for the Department for International Development (DFID) as an Economic Advisor, leading our policy and programming work around job creation.
