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 car body is built by robots. Work in the body shop is mainly feeding the material to robots and quality control. The work is done both individually and in teams consisting of coworkers and robots. As the work primarily involves being in the role of operator, welding skills are not necessary.

In the paint shop, a car gets the color. Paint shop jobs, such as body sealing and inspecting painted surfaces, are ideal for meticulous people with good manual skills who enjoy working as part of a team.

The general assembly department creates a car based on customer’s specification. Our car builders assemble the cars by putting the components together. Job includes assembling, testing and finishing. You need handicraft and accuracy to create the first-class quality. You are working as part of a team.

Internal logistics has a key position in manufacturing, ensuring the just-in-time delivery of parts. Internal logistics includes a variety of warehousing-related jobs, such as handling and distributing parts. Each employee in internal logistics will get a training to drive 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.
