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.

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:

For me the most exciting thing, is being able to see how the projects develop and take shape. Supporting other departments makes you also feel appreciated. There are a lot of things going on in the company and being part of it’s incredible.

The reason why I applied to Boliden’s trainee program is that I find it to be an extraordinary possibility for me to develop as an engineer at the start of my career. The experience so far has been superb. It’s very fun and challenging.

Otto Joutsiniemi

Development engineer, Harjavalta

The program is an opportunity to see the entire process from mines to smelters, to learn and to work with people from different countries and backgrounds. For me, it was important to know that we get to continue working when the program is over.

Anton Nyman

IT specialist data analytics, Boliden

What caught my attention is that I wanted to see how a big company operates in different countries and how they cooperate. I get the opportunity to be responsible for my own ideas, in a way I don’t think I would anywhere else.

I think metals are essential elements in the sustainable development, therefore it is critical to produce them sustainably. Boliden is in the forefront, which attracted my interest. As a trainee, I continuously get to learn and face new challenges.
