These open CSIS human resources jobs in Montreal do not require a university degree

High-paying jobs in Montreal seem to be popping up all over the place these days. For all those HR staff who secretly wish they were James Bond, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) is hiring now. The positions are in the agency’s human resources department and some are right here in Montreal. They don’t even need a college degree.

“We are hiring for a range of Human Resources positions, from Advisors to Agents, in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto!” the CSIS tweeted on April 11. “As an HR professional at CSIS, you will directly contribute to our mission and be able to advance your career in a unique HR environment.”

They’re not kidding when they call it a “unique environment”. Although HR responsibilities are fairly standardized across industries, this will likely be the first time certain candidates will be considered for an enhanced Top Secret security clearance from the Canadian government.

This means that to be hired, in addition to the standard interview process, applicants must agree to “a security interview, polygraph and background investigation which includes credit and financial checks”.

Assuming that didn’t scare you, here are the positions CSIS is looking to fill.
