As a trainee on the Axel Johnson International program, you’ll benefit from a springboard to a long term career within the group. At the same time, you’ll also be getting an in-depth knowledge and experience of our values, leadership and operations, working with employees and managers from across the organization. 

About our trainee program

The program comprises two training periods of operational work combined with theoretical sessions in form of seminars and courses. You will be assigned a project at the beginning of the year and you will be required to present the outcomes of this project to the group management at the end of the program. 

Your work assignments as a trainee will vary. It may be "small" thesis projects in areas such as business development and market research or real-time projects within the framework of a larger project.

You will of course also have Axel Johnson International's internal job market at your disposal in the future.
