Republik is looking for an ESG analyst who wants to put corporate social responsibility know-how into action on creative and brand projects. This person will be called upon to collaborate with the strategy team to support clients in the development of their brand platforms and CSR plans, by identifying the social and environmental issues inherent in their business model, by prioritizing and aliging them with industry expectations and best practices, and by putting concrete solutions into action.
Alright, so what's the job?
The job is to change the world through the Creation of Social Capital™. But if you want us to be more precise, here's a list of tasks you'll have to do in your day-to-day:
- Thoroughly develop stakeholder consultation procedures.
- Present clear, results-oriented research and analysis methodologies.
- Identify correlations between the information compiled.
- Draft clear findings and relevant recommendations.
- Build studies of opportunities to support said recommendations.
- Consistently advise the client on the positions taken.
What kind of background are you looking for?
Honestly, we don't think it's a good thing to have a too-long list of criteria. So let's just say these are some of the traits we think might help you do your job well:
- Minimum of 2-3 years of relevant experience directly related to CSR.
- Understanding of social, environmental and governance (ESG) issues and their impact on the value chain.
- Knowledge and understanding of the UN's framework on sustainable development objectives.
- Seeks collaboration and diversity of opinions when solving problems.
- Great ability to present reports and make recommendations to clients.
- High-level proficiency in both spoken and written English and French.
- Studies in sustainable development or related field (an asset).
What kind of people do you hire?
First of all, let us be clear: we will always prioritize people from minority groups at equivalent skills and experience. That being said, here are our five social standards that guide us in our mission and hiring process:
1 - Be CommittedWe're all on the same team and we share a common vision for a better world. Building a better world takes time and energy, so we have to make commitments—to our colleagues, our clients, and our planet.
2 - Stay CuriousOur 9 to 5 doesn’t define who we are. But who we are defines our 9 to 5. We cultivate our passions, we seek discovery, and we stay open to the world. Keeping our fire alive is a full-time job.
3 - Think BoldWe don’t do average. Our ideas are meant to hack the status quo and challenge brands to dream about what they can become. Forget impossible, because to change the world, you have to be crazy enough to believe you can.
4 - Speak RealWe like our stories real and our facts checked. No B.S. Our culture is inclusive and our collaborations based on integrity and honesty. Ego is not your amigo.
5 - Rise TogetherOur collaboration exists above titles and our trust in one another is more than just task descriptions. We work together with more empathy than criticism, more vulnerability than ego, and more listening than talking. Because 1+1=3.
And what are the perks?
All agencies offer pretty much the same thing, right? A good salary, nice offices, a decent insurance coverage, etc. Of course we have all of that, but that's not what sets us apart. What makes us different is that we truly care about our employees and we walk the talk. (We actually won a prize for that!)
We are very flexible with remote working and vacation time. And we understand how work-family balance is important; there were 4 new babies this year at Republik!
We have a beautiful office in downtown Montreal, but we also have an office in Tremblant to make sure people stay connected with nature. We have online yoga classes, a cash-back program for those who use public transportation, lunch-and-learn sessions every month, and one big offsite event every year with inspiring guest speakers and team-building activities. Oh and everyone gets Friday afternoons off in the summer to enjoy the beautiful weather!
But most importantly, our team is what makes Republik different. Everybody brings their passions and convictions to work, so that means you’ll always find a camp, ski, bike, or beer buddy! Or someone to talk to about your vegan lifestyle or mental health.
There's so much more, but you'll have to come see for yourself!
