UPM summer jobs offer you a fascinating and challenging field of work and an opportunity to utilise the skills you have acquired during your studies. This is a great opportunity for exploring whether UPM could be your future employer on a more permanent basis. It can also help you find out which part of UPM's diverse operations suits you best. Identifying your specific area of interest may prove helpful when planning the rest of your studies.

We will hire several hundreds of summer trainees across Finland in 2022. Most of those are located at our production facilities, where fluent Finnish is essential. In our Global Functions however, we have positions that suit English speakers. You can find these by searching our site with all positions and typing “no-finnish-required” in the search box. It will always be disclosed in the job description if Finnish language is also needed in that specific position. 

Our last year’s summer trainees recommend UPM as an employer. In fact, many of our summer trainees return to our professional community the following year.

Join us in building expertise in bioforest industry and spend memorable summer at UPM.
