All our open positions are listed on our career site. Go to job search to view current job opportunities at UPM and send in your application.
We recommend applying online through our career pages, where you can search for open positions. Once you have found a position that interests you, click “Apply” in the job ad and fill in the application form that opens automatically.
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 at UPM.
On the first page of the 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.
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 in the top right corner. In the window that opens you will see the “Forgot password” option. Type in your email and submit the request. A new password will be delivered to your email account in a few moments.
When you create a candidate account, you are asked to provide a password. Your 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 exists 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.
Before applying, read the application instructions in the job ad carefully and note the deadline. To save time, we recommend preparing attachments such as your cover letter and CV in advance before starting your application. We also suggest you prepare your CV and other attachments in PDF format.
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 address them to the HR service centre email specified in the job ad.
When you have sent your application, you will immediately receive a confirmation email sent automatically from our system. Remember to also check your spam folder.
The recruiting team screens all applications carefully. This usually takes 1-4 weeks after the application period has ended depending on the number of applications we receive and the urgency to fill the position. Clear and concise applications help us process them faster. We will keep you updated in case of any delay in the selection process.
If your application matches our expectations, you will receive an invitation to a face-to face or phone interview. You may also be asked to record video answers to prerecorded questions online. For some positions you may be asked to participate in a personality assessment and/or ability tests. Our recruiters will call you to agree on timing and give you instructions on how to prepare for the interview or assessment. Background checks may also be conducted if they are required for the position, but we always request your permission first.
We typically receive many applications. Unfortunately, this means that most of them will not make the final cut. Regardless of the result, we will inform you either via email or by calling you. However, if you are a match, we are excited to welcome you to our team. You will sign a contract and start your onboarding as a new UPMer.
The best way to apply is to do so directly for a position that interests you. At the moment, we do not accept open applications or maintain a talent pool.
If you find more than one interesting position you do not need to fill in a separate application for each position but can instead create a candidate account and use the same data to apply for all positions that interest you.
