Who are we and why join us?

Flint provides advice to business and other organisations, drawing on our extraordinary blend of international expertise and experience. We work at the point where government and business meet, offering an authoritative perspective on both.

In Flint’s Competition and Regulation practice we use our experience and technical knowledge from senior levels in regulatory authorities to support clients on a broad range of complex issues. For example, we:

  • support clients in managing competition, state aid or policy concerns that arise from transactions;
  • help companies understand and manage the impact of economic regulation and legislation on their business; and
  • advise clients on significant strategic and organisational decisions to defend their commercial interests.

We are based in London, work in Brussels, across the EU and internationally. We offer competitive salaries, bonus schemes, and the opportunity to progress your career rapidly and to build a stake in the business.

What does the role involve?

We are currently seeking highly motivated economists at a range of different levels to join our London team.  At a minimum you will have three years’ experience, but more senior candidates may have very considerably more.

Engaging closely with our UK and international clients across a wide range of sectors, you will have the opportunity to analyse the complex regulatory, competition and wider policy challenges that they face.  You will develop options and approaches to address those challenges, backing up recommendations with wider economic, financial, strategic and political analysis. You will also have the opportunity to work on a wider range of projects as part of a mixed discipline team.

Essential skills

  • Educated to at least degree level in economics or a related discipline.
  • First class understanding of economic principles and the ability to apply those in a practical way to real world problems – in particular, experience of applying regulatory and/or competition economics in a wider policy-making setting (for example, mergers or state aid).
  • Excellent analytical, quantitative, research and problem-solving skills – ability to 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 economic knowledge.
  • Outstanding oral communication skills, including ability to communicate complex issues to non-specialists.
  • Good organisational skills including the ability to prioritise, plan and schedule complex tasks proactively – 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.
  • Depending on level of seniority, you will have experience of working across both public and private sectors.
