Administrative Assistant

Posting ID:     23841
Position Type:   Regular 
City:   Houston, BC, Canada
Location:   Houston  


You are a highly motivated self-starter who excels in a high pace environment. Your strong interpersonal and communication skills set you apart from others. You’re a very organized master multi-tasker and don’t relent until the job is complete.  You do not look for work to find you, you find it; initiative is your middle name.


You have always been intrigued by Forestry and some would even call it your passion. You are eager to learn more about how we sustainably manage our Woodlands and are excited to establish your roots with Canfor.


Ideally, you have administrative experience, however, what’s far more critical is a passion to learn about our industry and a genuine desire to support our administrative needs at our Houston Woodlands operation. Some of your responsibilities will include onboarding of new hires, safety administration, event planning, and contract administration. Think you have what it takes to be our Woodlands Administrative Assistant? Don’t delay! Apply today!


There has never been a better time to join the Canfor team and become part of the sustainable and modern forest industry. We have a wide range of rewarding careers in some of the best communities in North America, with plenty of room for advancement. Our mills are modern, high-tech, and safe; and our marketing and sales activities are world-class. We offer competitive compensation and benefits packages and are committed to the professional development of our employees.


Canfor is a global forest products company, with operations in Canada, the US, and Europe and we are committed to creating a safe and productive environment for everyone. All qualified applicants will receive equitable consideration.

We see inclusion and diversity as an essential part of our productivity, creativity, innovation and competitive advantage. We strive for a fair and equitable recruitment process, where hiring decisions are based on the individual qualifications and experience of each applicant. 


We are not your run of the mill forest products company, join us and find out why. #canfortalent
