Kaija, Shift Supervisor, Finland
I work as a shift supervisor of the UPM Biofuels Lappeenranta biorefinery. For me, there is no typical work day – and that’s what keeps my job interesting. In shift work, an unexpected situation can come up at any time of the day. For an active person like me, the mobile nature of the job is also one of the best aspects. Working alone with my laptop isn’t for me. I need a job where I can work with other people and help to organize things, people and events.
I feel excited about working at UPM because I see a future for this industry and renewable fuels. One fascinating part of the job is the opportunity to work on something one of a kind as another refinery like this does not exist anywhere in the world yet. On the other hand, working for a large and established company provides a sense of security in the job market.
