Bäckhammar mill

We have many different professions both at Bäckhammar mill and throughout Nordic Paper, which means that we have many fun and interesting jobs to offer. There are opportunities in several areas to develop and grow. We also have short decision paths with close cooperation between different departments, which creates a good community. When I started at Bäckhammar, I immediately noticed the welcoming environment, it was very clear that you help and care about each other. That community is very important, says Mill Manager Kristin Israelsson.
