We are continually innovating so that our customers can deploy advanced and effective tools to protect their communities, countries and companies.

Your Role
We are looking for an HR Co-op to join our growing team! This position will provide HR administrative support to our overall HR team, including Business Partners, HR Programs, and Recruitment. You will be responsible for organizing, coordinating and carrying out human resource department projects and processes for Magnet Forensics.

What We Are Looking For
We’re looking for someone who checks off most, but not all, of the boxes listed in “skills and experiences”.  It’s more important to us to find candidates who can display indicators of success through skills they have developed and experiences they have been a part of, than to find folks who have ‘been there, done that”.  We want to be part of your development journey, and we’ll learn as much from you as you learn from us. 
There are a couple must haves, but we will keep that list short:
-       You are a student working towards a degree or diploma in Human Resources
-       Have excellent organizational skills in order to manage issues, projects and deadlines
-       Have outstanding communications skills, both written and oral
-       Attention to detail and a focus on data integrity
-       The ability to maintain confidentiality
-       Demonstrate expert proficiency with MS Windows/MS Office Applications

The Most Important Thing

Greater Good – We think beyond our own interests and strive to improve communities around the world. This demonstrates our passion for making a difference in the world.
Respect – We hold ourselves accountable through transparent sharing of information and we have faith in each other’s abilities.
Innovation – We lead the industry in excellence and reliability while keeping the user experience simple and relevant. We are not afraid to push the boundaries to stay ahead of our competitors.

We’re committed to continuous learning and are focused on building a diverse and inclusive workforce. This commitment will be reflected in our hiring processes and embedded in our values and how we treat one another.
