Successful applicants are assigned to a district office or business stream where they learn every aspect of that area, including shadowing highly experienced colleagues. They are then put on rotating placements around the country and across business streams, enabling them to build up their knowledge.

The company encourages all its employees to take advantage of the opportunities offered by a global market leader. These can include exchange programmes to learn about forestry in other UPM companies around the world.
