When you join Flint Global as an Intern, you are joining a business advisory firm that will challenge you and invest in your development. In this role you will work with the best teams to help support clients who face the challenges of regulatory and policy change at national, European, and international levels. These are businesses which require advice at the point where government and business meet – in private, public, and social sectors – we offer an authoritative perspective on both.  We help our clients anticipate, interpret and respond to developments in policy and politics. We advise on how they can shape the business environment and work constructively with policymakers to achieve their goals, in a context where governments are becoming more interventionist.



You will be assigned to one of our practice areas where you will support client engagements by providing analysis and briefing, contributing to policy development and project management.  Interns receive frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues on their teams. This support includes input from your practice and business support areas to help guide your career, helping you to develop your skills and build your network.



To be eligible for our internship, ideally you will be in your last year at university/business school.  We are looking for individuals with the ability to build meaningful relationships, are motivated, forward thinking and ambitious, and you bring integrity and a real client focus to your work.  A work experience placement would be for someone not yet ready for the world of work, but who wants to gain exposure to the working environment. 


You will bring the following range of skills:


  • Excellent analytical, quantitative, research and problem-solving skills.
  • Outstanding written communication skills, ability to draft clear documents.
  • Outstanding oral communication skills.
  • Good organisational skills including the capacity to prioritise, plan and schedule complex tasks proactively, and be comfortable working under pressure and to tight deadlines.
  • Strong interpersonal skills – a flexible approach and the ability to work well across teams, both with internal colleagues and external clients.
