What production department would suit you best?
We are always looking for new Heroes at the Automotive Factory in departments including the body shop, paint shop, general assembly and internal logistics. Different departments require slightly different skills from their heroes.
In the body shop, the work is done in teams consisting of coworkers and robots. As the work primarily involves being in the role of operator, welding skills are not absolutely necessary.
Paint shop jobs, such as body sealing and inspecting painted surfaces, are ideal for meticulous people with good manual skills and sharp-eyed observers who enjoy working as part of a team.
The general assembly department literally assembles the cars by putting the finished components together. It’s a job for people with a keen eye.
Internal logistics includes a variety of warehousing-related jobs, such as handling and distributing goods. You might even get the opportunity to drive a forklift.
The Maintenance & Facilities department is responsible for the maintenance of the processes and physical facilities of the largest factory in Finland. You’ll enjoy a unique view of the factory’s operations while working together with top professionals using state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
