UPM Graduate Programme 2023 welcomes recent graduates from different fields of study to kickstart their career. Stuart Dickson is a Process Engineer Graduate at our UPM Caledonian Paper mill in Irving, Scotland and Laura Oja is a Graduate in our Sourcing team at our Head Office in Helsinki, Finland. Both Stuart and Laura joined UPM Graduate Programme in September 2022.
What made you apply to the Graduate programme?
“The graduate programme was spoken of highly by a colleague who is a former UPM Graduate. I applied because it is a great way to get an overview of how a production facility works, with the opportunity to work in all different areas of the mill.” says Stuart.
For Laura, the Graduate Programme offered a way to gain great and versatile work experience within a short amount of time both in Finland and abroad.
“I have always been interested in many kinds of career opportunities. Therefore, this programme has also been a valuable enabler in exploring my interests in different roles and thereby planning my dream career path.”
