About the program
As a trainee at Lantmännen you are offered a unique start to your career where you will be a part of a dynamic and global Group with a vision for growth - in both existing and new markets. Over a 15-month period, you will join our professional teams somewhere in our global organization.
The four assignments in the program are spread across our business areas and functions and at least one of the assignments will be abroad. Projects greatly vary - aiming to give you as a trainee a wide range of knowledge and experience from our broad business.
Training sessions are held in parallel with work periods, to provide a good platform in important areas such as leadership, personal develop-ment, and strategic business thinking. But also to give you the right tools to grow and evolve - personally and professionally.
The trainee program also includes a strategic group assignment, which focuses on specific areas regarding Lantmännen’s future development. These strategic projects are often initiated directly by the Group Management team.
The recruitment process
Tests and phone interviews
In the end of January and during February the process will move on to digital assessment tests and phone interviews, which are the next steps in the recruitment.
Assessment day in March
During March a number of candidates will be invited to an assessment day at our head office in Stockholm and after that in-depth interviews will follow.
Finalizing the recruitment
Further interviews will be conducted and the recruitment process will be finalized in April 2020. Then the Graduate Trainee Program will begin end of August 2020.
During my assignments, I have met many great leaders and I have had the opportunity to both see them "in action", but also hear them discuss and reason about their leadership. It has made me realize what I appreciate about good leadership.
As a Graduate Trainee at Lantmännen, I got to do several interesting things – from working with Organic Grain and Transfer Pricing, to exploring Marketing at Unibake Belgium to learning more about Public and Regulatory Affairs. After the program I got the amazing opportunity to develop further in the role as Project Manager at Lantmännen Unibake in Copenhagen.
As a former trainee I was intrigued to try out exciting positions within Lantmännen's grain value chain, both in Sweden, internationally and within B2B and B2C. I have now taken on a role, pushing me outside my comfort zone, but with the confidence of managers and supportive colleagues; "You can do this!"
The best thing with the Graduate Trainee Program was the opportunities to see so many different parts of Lantmännen's broad business. It has been a unique journey to gain insights into a variety of activities and functions over a relatively short period of time.
