The Swedish mining and metals industry is at the absolute forefront of the green revolution. We work with finding the materials needed to build new technologies and modern communities – and processing them in the greenest, cleanest, most sustainable way possible. Everyone talks about going green and fighting climate change – we are showing the world how it’s done, and we need your help to do it.

That is why we will be organising a Student Tour

We will take you to some of Sweden’s most beautiful places, some of Sweden’s most interesting places to work, and show you the vast range of job opportunities available. You will get a closer look at what we do, at the issues we are trying to solve, and what your role could be in helping us do just that.

No matter whether your focus is civil or industrial engineering, IT, construction, geology, geophysics, chemistry, automation or perhaps a non-technical role, there are plenty of opportunities for you in our industry.

Be part of creating a better, greener future

With us, you will make a difference, each and every day. You will get to develop your skills alongside the best in the industry – and together, we will be shaping a better, greener future.

LKAB, Boliden and SSAB will be hosting the site visits at mine sites, copper smelter and steel making plant. The tour will take you to Kiruna, Luleå, Gällivare and Skellefteå.
