Cargotec offers challenging and interesting jobs for promising young talents taking the first steps on their career path. At Cargotec, you'll be assigned real work tasks from day one. You get to feel empowered, because we trust our trainees and rely on their ability to take responsibility and get things done.

You could be in the beginning of your studies or even a recent graduate to join us as a trainee.

Summer jobs

Our main channel for hiring blooming talent is through summer traineeships. As a summer trainee at Cargotec, you will get the opportunity to put to use and complement what you’ve learned in your studies, and at the same time, you will develop new connections with both professionals and fellow trainees.

Over 35 % of our summer trainees last year continued in part-time, full-time, fixed-term, or permanent employments after the summer. Watch the video below filmed by our summer trainees of 2016, and find out what they thought about spending the summer at Cargotec.
