Drive change for generations to come

Become part of an international team driving positive change for generations to come. Our new trainee program will feature positions at a number of our sites and offices in Sweden, Finland, and Norway. During the program you will get to work in different business areas, sites and functions. However, you will begin the program in a permanent position that you return to after the program is completed. We encourage people of different academic fields and backgrounds to apply.

The Trainee Program for 2024/2025 is now closed for new applications.


What we offer

As a trainee with Boliden, you will gain valuable knowledge about the metals industry at one of Europe’s leading mining- and smelting companies. You will gain insight in how we operate, as well as get access to a skilled network of local and international colleagues. You will be offered a personal development program throughout the program period with a tutor and a mentor to support you in your development. The trainee period is divided into three different sections of approximately four months each. The program combines local internships at different locations with theoretical and practical training in our core areas, and features onsite practice, digital meetings, active learning, team activities, and physical meetings and workshops.



Operation areas

The positions included in the program are divided between three areas of our operation:





The Trainee Roadmap

The trainee program is designed to give you a great start to your career as a young academic
professional. Work to increase self-awareness and improve communication skills,

skills such as planning, organizing, and seeing projects through from start to finish individually
and in teams. The program follows a roadmap with three practice periods: one at
homebase, one in another area, and one in a different role back at homebase. As a team,
you will work with different projects, and train in personal development

Here are our new stars

Boliden's trainee program is the kick start on a journey of discovery that will develop both you as a person and your professional career.

We will publish further information on our website and Boliden's social media.

We at Boliden are just as curious about you as you hopefully are about us - we always ask for other perspectives and welcome new approaches from our employees. We want you to take a place in Boliden's trainee family, take advantage of the opportunities given, dare to question and even fail.
That's how we learn and develop - together!


Andrea Malo Gonzalez

Geologist, Boliden

Andrew Aashish Koppoli

Process engineer, Harjavalta

"Working together with the other trainees during the meetings also makes the discussion more dynamic and hopefully we can come up with great ideas that I might not come across under normal circumstances".

Martin Ahlin

Buyer, Stockholm

"As we are eight trainees in different positions, it gives us the opportunity to network and help each other later in our careers. I look forward to working on a wide range of projects, learning from my colleagues and contributing to Boliden".

Miciel Wennström

HR, Aitik

“My mom drove those big trucks in Aitik which as a kid I always thought was very cool. That is probably a strong reason why I like Boliden so much, for the diversity in all jobs and that the company strives to gain from everyone´s differences and make it as diverse as possible in all departments".

Sauli Rytkönen

Process engineer, Garpenberg

"Boliden's values align with my own, and I believe they are crucial, especially in the mining and metals industry, where Boliden can lead by example in terms of environmental, social and governance practices".

Stefan Reisinger

"The mining industry fascinates me because the value of primary resources is underestimated in many aspects today, especially with electrification it is more important than ever. I am really looking forward to getting to know and supporting my colleagues in any way possible".
