Testimonials

"Working part-time has allowed me to do my other important job, being a parent. I have found Flint supportive, flexible, and understanding of the challenges of raising young children especially during lockdown. I was able to flex my hours around my childcare commitments."

Elly

Head of Marketing

"I’ve worked in a lot of different organisations and environments, in London, in Brussels and elsewhere: Flint works. You manage to integrate really effectively a diverse group of people, from different backgrounds, with different experience, from different countries. Getting the best out of working together. And, as Covid constraints gradually lift, we might even be able to get together in the same place."

Julian

Senior Adviser

"Like many others at Flint, I juggle a full time job with the challenges of raising small children. I feel very lucky to work somewhere where people respect and understand those challenges. I am able to work flexibly and make my own choices about how to get everything done, including home-schooling during lockdown. Ideally the kids would appear on fewer of my Zoom calls, but perhaps there it’s best to blame the parents."

Mark

Partner

"Working at Flint has been an intellectually stimulating experience - it has allowed me to constantly learn, develop expertise in a number of sectors, and grapple with policy issues that policymakers around the world will be seeking to address in the next decades"

Zoe

Consultant

"Working at Flint has given me the opportunity to work across a range of sectors and industries. Flint provides a great environment to develop, learn and grow professionally."
