No. When the summer recruitment starts, the recruiters are busy with selections and interviews. Therefore, they can be very difficult to reach by phone and do not have the opportunity to receive unannounced personal visits. Therefore, it is important that you make a good and fair presentation of yourself and your experiences in your application.

After selection, we call for interviews. How many people we call varies. After the interview, it’s time for references.  Some vacancies also require tests – sometimes the tests come before the references, sometimes after. It depends on what kind of job it is. Before offering employment, we will also make sure that you have a physical examination. We wait until the recruitment process is complete before informing other candidates that they were unsuccessful.
In the first interview you will usually get to meet one of our employees at HR and the recruiting manager. The length of the interview depends on the job in question and can last within 60 minutes and two hours. The interview takes place either at our premises or at a digital meeting place.

It depends on the type of job you have applied for, but within six and twelve weeks is the most common. Sometimes things happen that make it take longer, and sometimes things go more quickly. Some jobs require tests and that can mean that it takes longer.

We operate in a changing environment and we support and encourage the development and careers of all our employees.
There are many different people working with recruitment at LKAB – to be sure that we consider you for other roles, it is best that you submit a new application for each one. We welcome your application once again!
