Meet Ingemar Ylikangas – Director of Recycling

Building with experience from other industries

For the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and phase out oil, we need lots of efficient and sustainably produced batteries.

We’ve built the factory. It’s up and running with 100% clean energy. But when it comes to production, it’s the people that make all the difference. In particular, we need people with experience from working in other industries. People who have worked with pulp and paper, oil and gas, semi-conductors, and similar. Without great people and their valuble experience, there will be no green batteries.

During 2022 we recruited over 2000 new employees to Northvolt. This year we’re doing it again! Another 2000 people will join us on our journey. Operators, mechanics, engineers, quality technicians, and shift managers to name a few. Join us on the journey toward a greener future! Find your new job at Northvolt.

Let us answer some of the questions you might have

What working hours will I have?

This depends on which part of the production line you work in. Production will be running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can expect shifts rotating between days, evenings, nights and weekends.

Do you help out with the relocation?

Yes! We support the process of immigration, home finding, schooling, spouse support, and much more. We will provide you with more information about this during the first call with the recruiter.

What kind of employment can I get?

Everyone employed by Northvolt is offered an initial temporary probationary period which automatically turns into a permanent position if everything is well. This provides both us and you an opportunity to feel that this is right and that we feel comfortable together.

What will I earn?

We apply market-based wages, in accordance with collective agreements. More details will be provided during your recruitment process. On top of your salary, you will get the opportunity to acquire Northvolt shares at a fixed price.

Is it dangerous to work in battery cell production?

As in all production environments, there are risks. In battery cell production there are various chemicals and materials that require special training in handling and storage, as well as special protective equipment. As part of your initial training, we’ll introduce you to all of this, and thereafter provide ongoing opportunities to expand your skills and experiences to prepare you for growing into more senior roles.

What is the factory environment like?

Production of battery materials and cells requires highly controlled environments in order to assure high-quality products. Therefore, it’s important that much of the cell production process takes place in clean & dry rooms – environments that limit dirt and particles and are temperature and humidity controlled. Working in a clean & dry room is similar to working in a lab environment, and it requires specific training and protective clothing.

My partner will also need a job. Can you help out with that?

Sure! We’re in contact with a number of recruitment agencies and can support your partner’s way into working life in Skellefteå. The region already enjoys one of the highest employment rates in Sweden, and aside from jobs at Northvolt, Skellefteå is seeing a great increase new jobs in other sectors.

What previous work experience is relevant when applying?

We have a wide range of departments and areas to work in at Northvolt. Here we list relevant experience for some of them:

Operator: Work experience in industries such as paper mills, food, chemicals, electronics, oil, and gas production or smelters and/or training as an operator from industrial high schools or similar.

Production Engineer: Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in chemical, mechanical, industrial, or manufacturing engineering or equivalent. In addition, work experience from industries such as paper mills, smelters, pharmaceuticals, food, or refineries, is also relevant.

Quality Technician: Having worked in a lab environment before is a merit, as is having some kind of education in basic quality systems or similar.
