FAQ

Here you can find answers to frequently asked questions on recruitment.

Wher can I find UPM vacancies?

All our open positions are listed on our career site (www.upm.com/career). Go to job search to view all the job opportunities at UPM and to send in your application.

How can I apply?

We recommend applying online through our career pages. Open jobs can be searched for here. Once you have found a position that interests you, click “Apply” in the job ad and fill in the application form that opens.

You also have the option to apply with your LinkedIn account by clicking “Apply with LinkedIn” in the job ad. The application form will be automatically filled with data from your LinkedIn account. Before sending your application you can still check and modify the information.

After sending your application, you have the option to create a candidate account by providing a password. Creating a candidate account is optional but it will allow you to log in later and check the status of your application. You can also use the information from your application if you apply for another position within UPM.

What is the quick apply option and how does it work?

On the first page of a job application you have the option to use quick apply with your CV. This means that the application form will be automatically filled with the information from your CV.

After attaching your CV, the system will read its content and try to fill in the contact details, job history and education fields based on the data from the attachment. Review the application data and please note that depending on the content and formatting of the CV, some data might need to be corrected or added.

I have created a candidate account before, but cannot remember my password. What do I do?

If you have forgotten your password you can easily request a new one be sent to your email account. Click on the Sign In button on top right corner. In the window that opens there is the option “Forgot password.” Type in your email and submit the request. A new password will be delivered to your email account after a few moments.

I cannot create a candidate account. My email address has already been used.

When creating a candidate account, you are asked to provide a password. A password must be eight characters long, contain at least one special character, one capital letter and a number. Make sure that the password meets these requirements, and that when you are asked to enter it again, the passwords are identical.

If an account already exist with the email address you provided you will receive the message: “Sign in to this account or enter an email address that isn't already in use.” In this case, sign in instead with your email address and password. If you don’t remember your password it can be retrieved by clicking “Forgot password” and submitting your email address.

What should I know before I submit my application online?

Before applying, read any application instructions in the job add carefully and pay attention to the application deadline. To save time, we recommend preparing attachments, such as cover letter and CV, in advance before starting your application. We also suggest you prepare your CV and other attachments in PDF format.

Can I check or change my application after sending it?

Check your data carefully before submitting your application as you will not be able to edit your application after submission. If you would like to add attachments or correct your contact information, please write to the HR service center email specified in the job ad.

How soon will I hear back after applying?
