Sandvik in the US is looking for
Exceptionally Talented Graduates
Do you want to experience the world? Are you driven by a desire to make a difference? Do you hold a Master’s degree in Engineering or Business Administration? If so - we would like to hear from you!
Sandvik is a global industry group, present in more than 150 countries, with advanced products and world-leading positions in a multitude of areas. Last year, eleven of the world’s most talented graduates entered our 18-month Global Graduate Program. Selected for their drive and innovative minds, they’ve commenced a performance-driven career path within a company that truly recognizes the importance of professional development. September 2017 marks the start of Sandvik Global Graduate Program 3, as we’re giving performance-driven, aspiring, career orientated individuals an opportunity to embark on the journey of a lifetime.
The graduate program
Starting out with an eight-month training period in the US, you gain knowledge about Sandvik in your own geographical market, as well as practical experience in Sandvik’s way of doing business. The second training period will be with one of our markets outside your home country. In your final training period, you take part in a strategically important project, either in the US or in another part of the Sandvik world.
The program has four learning modules, in which participants will get together to take part in learning programs. These will focus on understanding Sandvik as a global company; our business and leadership as well as our way of working with your career and personal development. You will be assigned a senior Sandvik leader as a mentor during the program and you are employed by Sandvik in the US from day one. Where you will be starting your career after the program will be decided through personal development dialogues and the business needs. Throughout the program, you will receive feedback and evaluation on your performance. The program provides challenging and rewarding opportunities and you will be enabled – and expected – to contribute in an innovative environment.
Your role

The program provides challenging and rewarding opportunities in which you will be enabled – and expected – to actively contribute to keeping operations at the forefront in our innovative environment. You will take part in live projects, while gaining knowledge about Sandvik and obtaining practical experience of our way of doing business.

You also have a high level of emotional intelligence and exceptional communication skills.
