Flint UK Technology Services Ltd

After 20 years of servicing our customers both locally and internationally, in January 2020 a dedicated organisation was created to focus on our UK customers and market, where we have since striven to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. In February 2023 Flint UK became an employee-owned business, with a vision to be the first choice partner, providing talent and technical solutions, delivered by our empowered and passionate team. Flint UK provides two key offerings, Strategic Resourcing and Services.

Our Strategic Resourcing team have many years of experience identifying the right resource for our customers’ organisation which doesn’t just meet the skill set requirements, but they also have the soft skills and provide the right cultural fit, so they are able to be quickly integrated into their existing teams. At Flint, we take the time to ensure that these key nuances of a person are not missed through talking and interacting with our candidates during the recruitment process. Our goal is to elevate the customer and candidate experience by providing best-in-class technology-centred recruitment services. We have more than 20 years of expertise, an unrivalled network of quality candidates, and a reputation that precedes us.

Our Services organisation is multi-disciplined and works closely with our customers to provide solutions to their problems.  We provide the skills and expertise to support all parts of a solution deployment lifecycle: plan, design, build, test, roll-out, migration, expansion, and decommission.  We provide this flexibly to suit the customer, as consultative expertise, fixed-scope, or turn-key project delivery.

Through our commercial flexibility, we can solve client challenges, either on a day rate basis, or alternatively as a fixed price Scope of Works under the management of our Services and Support teams.

“In a mature UK market, our customers are demanding in the delivery model they want, and the speed at which its provided, be it as a traditional resource provision or a fully outsourced Scope of Works”, says Alan Bryant, Managing Director of Flint UK. “At Flint UK, we take time to understand our customers and their needs which needn’t necessarily just be constrained to technical skills. They need a range of Service offerings which provides not only the skills required but also great communication skills to speak with stakeholders. Through a customer delivery focus we can build teams and solutions which have the dedication and tenacity to be accountable for their deliveries and ensure their success.”

Flint UK works closely with major Tier-1 Operators and Vendors within the UK market and have become their trusted partner.

Flint UK operates in three key markets:

1. Service provider

Strategic Resourcing

Our Strategic Resourcing team has a proven track record of helping customers deploy effective, flexible, and tailored recruitment solutions. Our RPO services are designed to scale you’re your organisation’s changing needs, allowing for both permanent and contingent adaptation as required. Flint UK Technology Services’ unique position in the market allows us access to an exceptional network of global talent.

At the heart of our approach is genuine care for people. We understand that cultural fit is the glue that holds an organisation together, and our recruiters champion your mission and values when recruiting, recognising that the future success of any organisation cannot be achieved through technical competencies alone.

Our process is simple: through collaborative planning, we first understand your business requirements, then define role descriptions and commit to timelines for candidate interviews and start dates. We help our clients meet their hiring goals, crafting role descriptions, advising on market trends, and leveraging our very own technical and project management staff to test and interview candidates. We place high importance on delivering teams that are demonstrating agility, high energy, openness to change, and creativity. We work closely to ensure smooth onboarding, conduct performance reviews, and maintain ongoing communication with our candidates and hiring managers to ensure a positive recruitment experience.
