Case study - Mint & Co

We’d definitely use 2to3days again, the process from start to finish was very clear, the service well priced and importantly, in line with our ethos of flexible working practices

Meet the candidate

Having returned from maternity leave, and with my contract coming to an end, I was looking for a role in the creative industry that would match my skills, pay me fairly and offer a certain amount of flexibility. I was starting to despair at many companies’ hollow pledges to offer flexible working. Then I discovered 2to3days, who recognise the need for flexible working among professional parents. It was an amazing stroke of fortune as I then saw this role at Mint & Co. I now recommend 2to3days to everyone seeking a better work/life balance.

Meet the company

Mint & Co is a dynamic, modern legal and business affairs practice providing legal and business affairs support to media and creative companies (largely production companies and creative agencies producing TV, podcast, immersive and branded content).

The role


Operations Manager

Number of Applicants:  48 applicants overall, 22 via 2to3days

3 days, flexibly across the week, in school hours, from home (plus fortnightly meetings in London)

The company


Legal and business affairs for media industry

Location:  Remote, founded in London
Company Size: 3 Employees, 16 Business Affairs Consultants

Business context

As Mint & Co steadily grows, we needed someone with excellent ops and organizational experience to join the central team – to help streamline and implement new processes and keep us organized, so that we have a strong foundation for future growth.

Support for the expertise that flexible working brings

All employees at ‘Mint HQ’ work flexibly and remotely (other than fortnightly team meetings in London) as do all of our Business Affairs Consultants who are based around the UK. We’re really passionate about people being able to work in the way that best suits their lives (whether that is working around family, caring responsibilities or other life passions) as well as disrupting the legal industry (which has historically been very rigid in terms of working practices). We obviously still have to balance this with excellent client service levels, and we have a minimum availability commitment per week for our regular consultants.

Candidate quality

The vast majority of candidates were of a high caliber and we telephone interviewed several as a first round. As a matter of course I don’t take any further those candidates who only send their CVs without a covering letter, or with a generic letter not tailored to Mint & Co.
