Are you good on and off paper? Apply for the UPM Bioforce Graduate Programme 2018 in paper businesses then!


UPM’s Bioforce Graduate programmes have been great successes for the company, as we have found people like Sanna,  Jukka,  Juanita and Jennifer through them. Thankfully, the graduates seem happy as well! But we want more! As an ever-evolving company we are always on the lookout for bright people to carry the torch long in to the future. This time we are looking for people who have recently graduated, or have a couple of years work experience, to work in UPM paper businesses, the very heart and soul of our company.

The programme will start in September 2018 and the application period is from 1 to 30 April 2018. It might be a good idea to apply early as the pre-selection begins in mid-April already. The Bioforce Graduate Programme 2018 in paper businesses offers eleven positions in Germany, Finland, France and Russia. Two positions are in UPM Paper sales in Paris, France and Moscow, Russia and eight positions at different UPM mills in Finland (Jämsänkoski, Kaipola and Rauma), Germany (Plattling, Dörpen, Augsburg and Hürth) and in Chapelle mill in France.

Finding a home at UPM

As before, the graduates will have a UPM mentor and a development plan and they will work at different UPM locations during the first year. The trainees will start off in their home base and work there for six months after which they will move on to two other positions for three months. One assignment will be in another country if possible. The position will turn into a permanent one directly after the first year. Along the way the graduates will undergo training in leadership development and business understanding for example.

The UPM Bioforce Graduate Programme 2018 in paper businesses is looking for bright people with a positive attitude. The company values – trust and be trusted, achieving together and renew with courage – should feel easy to you. If you are good both on paper and off it we’d love to have you join us!
