Consultant

London & Brussels · London & Brussels, London, City of
Department London & Brussels
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Mid-level

We are looking for two consultants with demonstrated interest and experience in EU affairs:

 

  • One will support the delivery of client work and business development opportunities across our policy & political analysis (PPA) team based in our London office.
  • One will be part of our fast-growing EU affairs team in our Brussels office.

 

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 and 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. 

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

 

We are looking for candidates from a range of backgrounds, with a particular interest in individuals with direct/indirect experience working in European institutions, EU member states governments or parliaments, or a relevant multilateral institution. We are also open to candidates from commercial background including major consulting houses with a keen interest in EU politics, policy and regulation.

 

For the London-based role, we are keen for candidates with experience or skills in digital, technology and media policy, although this is not essential. For the Brussels-based role, we are equally interested in experiences or interests in digital, climate and sustainability, competition, financial services policy, or healthcare.


For consultant level roles, we are looking for candidates with c.1-4 years’ work experience. In addition, you will have a strong track-record of sustained achievement.

 

You will have: 


  • A strong understanding of EU policy and politics.

  • Strong written communication skills, with proven ability to draft clear documents for internal and external audiences with varying degrees of expert knowledge.
  • Strong oral communication skills, including the ability to communicate complex issues to non-specialists.
  • Strong organisational skills including the capacity to project manage client teams including, prioritising, planning and scheduling complex tasks proactively, and 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.
