One big family
Lantmännen is an agricultural cooperative founded on the deep knowledge our farmers have aquired over generations. We make farming thrive and work together to take responsibility from field to fork.
Our journey as a Group started 100 years ago, when Swedish farmers came together to create new ways of working with grain. Ever since, Lantmännen has been all about developing profitable and sustainable businesses from grain – a tiny product with huge potential. Today, we are a global and growing Group with operations across the entire value chain – from field to fork.
We want to constantly challenge ourselves. That is why we are looking for new talents who want to be part of a dynamic and global Group with a vision for growth. We offer the programme to business-oriented people who share our passion for the future of agriculture, machinery, energy and food – talents who can reimagine the world of grain.
Meet Elisabeth Wallin Mononen, SR Vice President & Head of HR and Internal Communication at Lantmännen. Listen to her perspective on why we have invested in the Lantmännen Graduate Trainee 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. You will join one of our professional teams somewhere in our global organization, either within one of our main sectors: Agriculture, Machinery, Energy or Food, or in group functions. Over a 15-month period, you will be given the opportunity to try out four different positions across various sectors, countries and professions – all to achieve in-depth insight into our wide range of products and services.
Most importantly, you will be part of a global network and share knowledge with skilled colleagues, as well as the chance to make an impact on society and peoples’ everyday lives. After the program is finished, you will get a permanent position somewhere in our international organization.
