Associate, Client Solutions - 2019 June Intake


If you’re looking for a relationship with a spreadsheet then turn away. If repeating mundane tasks is your thing then perhaps Lynk isn’t right for you. Above all else, this role requires hunger. A hunger to serve our clients, a hunger to beat the clock, a hunger to quench your intellectual curiosity, and a hunger to excel.


As an Associate/Principal, you will be one of the primary building blocks of our company. Associates/Principals are directly responsible for revenue generation, leading the entire project lifecycle from building client relationship, sourcing projects from clients, understanding client needs, identifying and sourcing experts, as well as facilitating engagements between clients and experts. This requires skills in industry and market research, leads identification, sourcing and conversion, and building trusted relationships with both clients and experts. This function will be instrumental in enabling clients to make better-informed business decisions, which you could be reading about in The Wall Street Journal the following day.


We seek individuals with strong research capability, excellent client-facing skills, and a hacker mentality to get things done. We value commitment to client service, a curious mind, strong work ethic, a deep understanding of how businesses operate, and an all-round emphasis on quality.
