Digitalization Trainee Program

SSAB creates world-class customer experience via Digital Commerce and is optimizing processes and production using new technologies. We now seek new skills through our Digitalization Trainee Program.

Application for 2023 program starts soon

SSAB is undergoing a double transformation – digitalization and fossil-free. SSAB is world’s first company that has started fossil-free steel deliveries and will be entirely fossil-free through HYBRIT initiative. We are speeding up the digitalization of our customer experience, production and processes with modern technologies. Mastering the double transformation requires new skills and so SSAB is launching the second Digitalization Trainee Program.

The program will last 12 months starting either in January or September 2023. Each trainee will be assigned to a permanent position during the trainee period. Mentoring will continue for two years after the program. Theme of the 2023 trainee program is digital support to fossil free transformation. This means that the trainees will receive tasks related in designing the new digital landscape for fossil-free steel value chain.
