Careers in the Knowledge Network

Role Descriptions

Our teams are always looking for exceptional people who are eager to learn and share their knowledge with others.

Our roles demand exceptional problem-solving and analytical skills, and we look for people with relevant work experience and knowledge of advanced research techniques, analytics, or statistical tools and approaches. Your academic achievements and professional experience will determine your initial role. We want to ensure you have appropriate challenges, support, and coaching from day one. The level of guidance you receive will depend on the focus and seniority of your role.

We offer a range of career paths within the Knowledge Network. If you begin as a senior researcher, for example, you might choose to follow a “specialist” career path—and develop your expertise in a specific area or lead a team of researchers in a particular group. In addition to working in knowledge consulting, research, analytics, and knowledge roles, you can also find opportunities in knowledge operations helping our Knowledge Network become even better in practice management, learning, and professional development.
