International manufacturer of high quality, sustainable paperboard seeks students to help out in several projects during the summer
Iggesund Paperboard is the proud maker of Invercote and Incada, two of the world’s leading paperboard brands. Founded in 1685, Iggesund Paperboard is part of the forest industry group Holmen, which owns more than 1.3 million hectares of forest in Sweden. We care for every tree during its century long journey from seedling to paperboard.
Our care for our customers and their businesses goes far beyond offering the best paperboard. We also provide a broad range of services, support and advice. And we care about the environment, all the way from our forests to the consumers. That’s because we believe black figures are best grown from green assets. We call this Care by Iggesund.
We are looking for students that want to work for a 5-8 week period between the end of May and the end of August in our Amsterdam office. You will assist with projects in one of two departments: Customer Service and Training. This is a great opportunity to gain work experience in an international company!
YOUR NEXT CHALLENGE
You will assist either in Customer Service or the Training department. You will be part of our Amsterdam office with 70 people with different nationalities. It is your job to help us with both new and existing projects and to (partially) fill the gaps left by people that are on vacation.
TO SUCCEED IN THE ROLE
You are good at learning a lot of new things in a short amount of time. You enjoy taking on new challenges, are interested in what is going on around you and are very flexible. We appreciate your input and creativity when it comes to problem solving.
At Iggesund, we value courage, commitment and responsibility, for the environment as well as our employees. We care for our customers, both internal and external, and we expect you to do the same.
