Time flies for Linn in the windy city of Chicago, being busy with analysing the market and in addition to work, Linn says: "It’s a great experience to learn more about this big country and its different cultures."
To meet the people on site, and to listen to their work and understand the value each and every part contributes to within a full value chain company like Lantmännen is the best part of the Graduate Trainee Program.
During my assignments, I have met many great leaders and I have had the opportunity to both see them "in action", but also hear them discuss and reason about their leadership. It has made me realize what I appreciate about good leadership.
As a Graduate Trainee at Lantmännen, I got to do several interesting things – from working with Organic Grain and Transfer Pricing, to exploring Marketing at Unibake Belgium to learning more about Public and Regulatory Affairs. After the program I got the amazing opportunity to develop further in the role as Project Manager at Lantmännen Unibake in Copenhagen.
As a former trainee I was intrigued to try out exciting positions within Lantmännen's grain value chain, both in Sweden, internationally and within B2B and B2C. I have now taken on a role, pushing me outside my comfort zone, but with the confidence of managers and supportive colleagues; "You can do this!"
