Production offers the opportunity for you to challenge yourself and the people around to constantly search for smarter and better ways of working. Continuous improvement is a natural part of day-to-day activities.
Scania has production facilities in Europe and Latin America and assembly plants in Africa and Asia. The strategy is to work with continuous improvements in order to minimise workplace injuries, increase efficiency and develop working methods. All employees contribute to the improvement work, something that generates both engagement and pride.
The work is often done in teams, working closely with co-workers and managers, and each individual is given the opportunity to develop in their day-to-day work. The demands for quality are high and mean responsibility is shared by the entire team.
Demand for well-trained technicians is always high and young graduates have ample opportunities to develop both in the areas of modern management and their specialisations. Cross-functional contact allows for increased understanding of the product, from research and development right through to finished product.
