Drive change for generations to come

Become part of an international team driving positive change for generations to come. The Boliden Trainee Program features exciting positions at several 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 may return to after the program is completed.

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.
