Role and Placement: Forestry Trainee, where my primary role is as a Forest Production Manager, Gävle

What do you do in your role? My main task is to make sure that the right volume and assortment of wood comes from the forest to our production mills.

What is the best part with your job? The mix of being in the office one day, and the next day out in the forest + the daily interactions with different kinds of people.

Why do you recommend others to apply to BillerudKorsnäs Trainee program? It’s a great opportunity to really see the whole value chain of a company and to meet people from the entire organization!

What’s your favourite kind of package or packaging solution? Gotta love the D-sack! A great example of a sustainable product. I mean, it disappears in the concrete mix… very cool
