FLINT812 - Consultants

PPA/MIA · London, London, City of
Department PPA/MIA
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Entry-level

You will support the delivery of client work and business development opportunities across our policy & political analysis (PPA) and markets and investor advisory (MIA) teams.

 

You will work closely with Managers, Directors and Partners to advise clients on public policy, politics, regulation, and commercial strategy. Flint’s clients want to understand, in detail, how they can build a long-term strategy to thrive commercially in a changing increasingly uncertain policy environment.

 

You will have opportunities to engage with clients at the most senior levels – including Board members and Executive teams – and across a wide range of sectors. You will work with other members of the Flint team to research and analyse the complex policy challenges our clients face and develop options and approaches to address those challenges, backing up recommendations with wider strategic and political analysis. You will also have the chance to work on a range of projects as part of a mixed discipline team.

 

This is a junior role and will involve some more administrative, organisational and research tasks to support the client teams you work with. However, there will be space to engage in discussion and debates on substantive policy and political challenges, as well as significant scope for career progression through the company. 

 

More broadly, you will contribute directly to the growth of our business, generating the ideas that make a difference, both for our clients and for Flint.
