It is an exciting journey LKAB has started – to deliver here and now while developing for the future. Access to the skills required to lead the transition and develop innovative solutions for the mining of the future will be crucial for our success.

We continuously work to clarify what characterises LKAB as an employer and what we can offer. Our reality is summaries well in our promise: “Our greatest challenge. Your greatest opportunity.”. Working at LKAB will suit those who are driven by curiosity, who like challenges and who have a strong desire to develop.

Competition for labour is fierce and we strive to broaden the reccruitment base and increase diversity by recruiting more women, senior competence and employees with an international background. In this way, we promote our innovative power.

Since the beginning of 2023 we have conducted campaigns, both in Sweden and abroad, to increase awareness of LKAB and attract new employees. During the year we also participated for the first time in Europe’s largest emigration fair, Emigration Expo in the Netherlands. That intereset in LKAB has increased can be seen in, among other things, the fact that in 2023, for the first time, we entered the list of Sweden’s 100 most attractive employers for young talent in Academic Work’s annual survey.

While we work intensively to attract new talent, it is as important to take care of our existing employees, making sure that everyone has the opportunity to develop in step with the transformation. We strive for a culture where learning is seen as a natural part of daily work and work systematically with competence and career development. At the core, there are always our values: commitment, innovation and responsibility.


LKAB is an international mining and minerals group that offers sustainable iron ore, minerals and special products. We are committed to developing carbon-free processes and products by 2045, leading the transformation of the iron and steel industry. Since 1890 we have developed through unique innovations and technological solutions and are driven forward by almost 5,200 employees in 12 countries. In 2023, the LKAB group had sales of about SEK 43 billion.
