Senior Statistician

Johannesburg Research Consulting Services
Your role

What is it about

As a Statistician, you will be a valued member of the Project Services team, a multi-disciplinary team managing research projects from A to Z, from initial set-up to preparing client-ready deliverables. Within the team, you will be responsible for analyses and reporting. You will manage the project from an analytical point of view - process data in various ways, from manipulating data in analytical tools to table reporting and charting. Together with the consultants, you will dig into the project in search of the most important findings. You will support the senior team members in analysing and reporting more complex and technical challenging projects. As you’re getting familiar with our processes, you will have the opportunity to guide and coach junior colleagues
Your responsibilities

What you'll do

  • Quantitative research
  • Quality control: you run checks on raw data to ensure the quality of technical survey implementation, by visually scanning the dataset and manipulating the data where needed.
  • Data handling: you manage datasets and prepare them for further analysis (data cleaning, restructuring and reweighting).
  • Analysis and reporting: you are in the lead for analysing and charting surveys; you interpret technical briefings to create basic table reporting with the appropriate tools, and you take full ownership in running descriptive univariate analyses and chart results based on a concrete briefing; finally, you analyse and report qualitative research plug-ins.
  • Qualitative research: you find relevant content (articles, blogs, etc.), while assessing the quality of the sources found.
Your profile

What you'll bring

You have a bachelor’s degree (e.g. Marketing, Statistics, Economics, Mathematics or similar) and a proficient knowledge of English (both oral and written). You have minimum 5 years of working experience in data analysis.

Why this is(n't) for you

  • You are fascinated by data and numbers.
  • You know how to work with a statistical program (SPSS, R, MATLAB, SAS).
  • You’re an excellent communicator.
  • You’re fun to work with. 😉
  • You don't like working with data and numbers.
