A visit to the careers page of the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC)’s website reveals an impressive rundown of its offerings: a diverse work environment, continuous learning opportunities, work-life balance and a comprehensive total rewards program.

Each element is described in detail to entice “talented team players, problem solvers and innovators who want to build a career while exploring new industries and opportunities in Saskatchewan.”

And enticement is needed as the Treasury Board Crown corporation requires highly specialized employees. Based in Saskatoon with offices in Prince Albert, Regina and Uranium City, SRC conducts research in a number of fields and lab services for Canadian and global clients. Established in 1947, it has 450 full-time employees.
