Flint’s clients want to understand, in detail, how they can build a long-term strategy to thrive in an evolving policy environment.   Our clients include major banks, asset managers, fintechs and other financial institutions as well as alternatives, portfolio companies and corporates. 

 

You will work with them to deliver the best possible outcomes, and across the Flint team to research and analyse complex policy challenges. You will also work closely with Partners, Directors and Managers to develop options and approaches to address these challenges, backing up recommendations with wider strategic and political analysis. There will be opportunities to engage in substantive policy and political challenges, as well as significant scope for career progression through the company.   

 

SPECIFICALLY, THERE IS A REQUIREMENT TO DEMONSTRATE:


  • Excellent analytical, research and problem-solving skills - the ability to quickly dive into new topics and draw out the implications of complex evidence and analysis to give clear strategy and policy advice
  • Outstanding written communication skills, with proven ability to draft clear documents for internal and external audiences with varying degrees of expert knowledge
  • Outstanding oral communication skills, including the ability to distil varied information and communicate complex issues to non-specialists
  • Good organisational skills including the capacity to prioritise, plan and schedule complex tasks proactively, and to comfortably work under pressure and to tight deadlines
  • Effective support to colleagues in building relationships, e.g. through insightful research and briefings, delivering proposals/pitches, providing initial drafts and research as required
  • Ability to take the lead on defined streams of work within client teams and projects
  • Effective time management to meet client and/or internal project deadlines

 

KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS & EXPERIENCE:

 

We are looking for self-starting individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds. Our team has a mix of consulting, corporate, investor and public sector experience.

  • A strategy consultancy or in a boutique advisory firm
  • National government, the European institutions or for a political party
  • A major regulator
  • Asset management or investment banking
  • A central bank or multilateral institution
  • A trade body


Desirable sectoral knowledge:

 

You may currently be working in an EU institution, for a regulatory authority, for a public affairs or management consultancy, a major financial services institution multinational or a think-tank. You have experience in financial services policy and regulation, understand the EU’s legislative process and the value of personal networks. You have approximately 2-3 years of relevant job experience, and are eligible to work in London or Brussels.


Personal skills:


  • Personable, confident and professional with good judgement and ability to communicate effectively
  • Reliable, discreet and well presented, giving a positive image of Flint company values
  • Pro-active and responsive to changing needs and demands of our clients, while remaining calm under pressure and self-motivated
  • Able to work collaboratively in teams and would be the kind of colleague who will add to the strong community we are building at Flint.
