Going north

When Alexander Cooke made the move from England to Gällivare, the biggest cultural difference was the unofficially mandatory Swedish coffee break “fika” and the open and understanding work culture.

“I’m always drawn to places that are different and Norrbotten seemed special with the wilderness, the long summer days, and the Northern Lights. I like the cozy small-town vibes. You feel at home, like a local.”

"Also, the fika and the warm, relaxed culture are awesome. You don't have that stressful pressure up here."

Everything starts with our people. With their special skills, characteristics, and backgrounds – they are the greatest asset and the solution to upcoming challenges. We believe in giving employees the opportunity to grow and thrive in a healthy career. To create something that matters.

Accepting the challenge

For Anna Hynynen, being part of the LKAB vision which aims to have a big impact on Sweden’s emissions means the world.

“As a geologist, my goal is to preserve our planet for generations to come while still providing us with the resources we need for functional society.”

"It's no secret that the mining industry has a big negative footprint, but in the mines, a positive change can have a large impact. I'm proud of being a part of a company that isn't scared of the challenges ahead."

We’re embarking on the biggest change in LKAB’s 130-year history, and that’s why we need you –courageous, committed, ready and able to take on the world’s greatest challenge. You are the key to making LKAB’s production carbon-free by 2045. Together, we can set a new world standard.
