Research Analyst (Entry-level)

16 November 2021




Sentis is a market research and business consulting company. We help clients understand their customers, competitors and employees. We work with private and public sector organizations across a range of industry sectors. Our projects often start with research: but we do more than just summarize facts and figures; we interpret the results and help our clients make better decisions.

We're looking for someone who...
  • Has a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the social sciences or marketing-related field, or is very close to completing one. (Those with advanced degrees are welcome to apply, but remember this is an entry-level position).
  • May have some work experience in marketing and public opinion research but not necessarily so. If you’re curious, enthusiastic and have learned some of the basics of marketing and public opinion research through schoolwork or volunteering you should apply. (Yes, we understand that you can’t get experience without getting a job).
  • Seeks the company of other friendly, motivated people who work together and celebrate successes as a team.
What you'll do here...
  • Participate in sessions with team members to define project objectives and goals
  • Support team members by managing multiple projects to ensure on-time, error-free delivery
  • Review and edit questionnaires, online surveys, reports and proposals
  • Program questionnaires into our online survey platform
  • Ensure standards for quality control, data confidentiality and privacy are implemented
  • Analyze and interpret data
  • Assist in the production of reports and presentations
Things that the successful candidate will also have...
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office Excel, Word and PowerPoint
  • Basic understanding of market research fundamentals, including sampling, surveying and data interpretation (experience using SPSS or other statistical packages is a good thing)
  • A keen eye for detail – an obsession with accuracy comes in very handy here
  • A strong work ethic
  • The ability to write and communicate clearly
  • A sense of humour
Where you’ll work

Most of us enjoy working from home so we’ll be keeping that option available for team members. If remote working is not your thing we have an office at Brentwood, with easy parking and right on transit.

Why work at The Sentis Group?
  • Flat company structure
  • Company culture that values unique interests, collaboration, and new ideas
  • No time sheets (autonomous, flexible time-management)
  • No sales targets (Sentis is referral-based, not sales-driven)
  • Employee Recognition Program
  • Flexible worksite: remote or hybrid
  • Professional development and training
  • A mix of fun team events (about once a month)
  • Paid vacation when employment starts
  • Paid time-off between Christmas and New Year’s, plus 2 “Sentis stats” during the year
  • Group insurance and travel coverage: dental, vision, prescriptions, paramedical, life insurance, ADD,
    LTD, and EAP (Employee Assistance Program)
Money, etc.

The salary will be commensurate with a candidate’s experience and capabilities. We also have a very
competitive extended health benefits program.
