Name: Britta Björklund
Education: Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Uppsala University and Master’s degree in Forest Economics from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
Role and placement: Business development trainee Cartonboard, Frövi.
What do you do in your role? The Business development department on Cartonboard is working with supporting and developing our sales organization on Cartonboard. For example we try to look for new market and built strategies for how to enter them. We also work with trying to develop our service offer according to what our existing customers want. Right know I’m working with two projects. One project where we are trying to create a future sheeting strategy for our Cartonboard products in Europe and one project where we are trying to develop an app for our customer to use.
What is the best part with your job? The best part with my job is that I have constant contact with many different people on different positions within the company. To be able to work with development of our business I need to learn from the people working in it! I also love that we work in project form, so we have starting and ending points.
Why do you recommend others to apply to BillerudKorsnäs Trainee program? First of all BillerudKorsnäs do really invest in their Trainee program, which of course make you feel special and make you want to engage in the program. But it is so much more than the investment from the company, it is a company you want to work for! It gives me energy working for a company that looks positive at the future and believes that it is we (the people within the company) that together can create that future.
The trainee program consists of 14 trainees placed on different positions in the company and Sweden. By working together you can learn from each other and see things from different views. As you can probably understand I strongly recommend BillerudKorsnäs’ Trainee program, but the best of it all is that you will meet a lot of nice, inspiring, positive and awesome people that will help you learn enormous of good stuff!
