Aboriginal and/ or Torres Strait Islander Senior Consultant / Manager
Seeking Research Assistants and/or Analysts with Quantitative Experience - Sydney or Brisbane
Do you love working with and telling stories with numbers? Want to contribute to solutions to the most important public policy questions of our time?
Who are we?
ARTD Consultants is a leading public policy consultancy firm with offices across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. We deliver services in evaluation and strategy in diverse sectors across Australia, working with government agencies and non-government organisations to help them make evidence-informed policy decisions; co-design service models and delivery strategies; plan for, track and evaluate outcomes; and continuously improve performance. We have a strong commitment to learning and growth, and have regular lunchtime learning sessions and mentoring programs.
Our vision is for a more thoughtful world, in which citizens and decision-makers use evaluative tools to design and refine action for the public good.
Who are you?
We are seeking two recent graduates or final year university students with strong quantitative data analysis skills, based in either Sydney or Brisbane. We look for individuals who are curious, adaptive, and determined, and capable of collaborating in a dynamic team environment to contribute to solving real world problems. We recruit from all disciplines because evaluation is cross-disciplinary, but for these roles we are specifically seeking those whose studies have included statistics or economics.
If you want to contribute to better decision making by government and not for profit organisations, are passionate about quantitative methods, and are diligent and not content with superficial answers, then ARTD could be the place for you.
You may apply for a casual Research Assistant position if you are in your final year of university or a recent graduate, or permanent Analyst position if you are a recent graduate with relevant work experience.
What will you do?
Research Assistants and Analysts join one of ARTD’s consulting teams. We seek to include our junior staff across projects from start to finish, but you may also assist with tasks as needed to support your team.
In these roles you might be:
- analysing and extracting information from documents
- assisting with data administration
- analysing quantitative data using software such as R, Tableau and advanced Excel functions
- notetaking in workshops
- programming surveys
- setting up and transcribing interviews
- conducting literature scans
- finding background information on policy areas.
We have a very supportive culture and spend considerable time and energy on developing the skills of our people.
How to apply
Send a 2 page CV and 1 page cover letter (500 words max.) and letter of recommendation (if appropriate) to email@example.com. Explain your interest in a position as a Research Assistant or Analyst and why you think ARTD would be a good fit for you. Closing date: 29 October 2021
