The World is our playing field
For the fourth time Axel Johnson International is offering a trainee programme to nurture the next generation of leaders. Open to graduates with a Master of Science degree in Engineering, the programme will take place in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Great Britain. It combines challenging practical work with theoretical sessions.
The next programme will start on 1st September 2013, and will run for 13 months. The application period is from February 1st, 2013 until February 28th, 2013.
Axel Johnson International combine world-leading products with problem-solving skills and a deep commitment to service. A genuine understanding of the operational requirements of our customers – and an appreciation of the challenges they face – is the foundation for our business.
We combine problem-solving skills with world-leading brands and products within lifting and lashing, fluid handling, bearings and transmissions, heavy-duty vehicle components and imaging products. We create value through customised solutions, including application expertise, installation, training, service and efficient logistics.
We are a group of strong and expanding market leading niche companies, organised into four business groups: AxLoad, AxIndustries, AxFlow and AxImage.
We are privately owned and are a part of the Axel Johnson group. As a private company, we can think and act on a long-term basis. We operate all over Europe, with our Headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden.
A trainee appointment is an excellent way to gain an insight into a variety of work fields, to learn how our organization works and to achieve an understanding both of our business and of our corporate culture. The programme also provides a unique opportunity to network in a multinational environment.
During the next few years, Axel Johnson International is facing a generation shift, and the trainee programme helps us spot talents and identify person capable of taking on a future leading role and contributing to the overall development of the company.
Our international structure, combined with the strength of being a part of the Axel Johnson Group, offers extensive opportunities to work cross-functionally, and the employees we are in fact seeking are generalists more than specialists.
A well run trainee programme will greatly improve your chances of climbing the career ladder, nationally as well as internationally. Once the programme is completed, we offer a permanent position with relevant responsibilities.
The Trainee Programme
During the year the trainee programme offers you a unique chance to work on projects within the Axel Johnson International Group’s different businesses – authentic and demanding ‘on-the-job-training’. The programme will offer you the opportunity to get a solid start within a vast network as well as, and not least, a great overview of Axel Johnson International.
The trainee programme could be your first step in a long-lasting career within the Axel Johnson International business group. The trainee year represents a very exciting, very demanding yet very rewarding challenge. It will test your capacities and abilities both within the company and in different projects. You will benefit from a personal mentor during your time on the programme and continuous feed-back will be provided.
The trainee programme is divided into two periods comprising operational work within two separate business groups. The programme also includes development elements of a more theoretical nature.
