Caroline's highlights

2018 we launched our first nuclear trainee programme which ended this spring. Read about our former trainees highlights; “The trainee programme gave me the opportunity to get to know people across the organisation and gave me a network that I now use every day in my daily work. It was a real kick-start in my career and what I learned during the year normally takes several years to experience.”- Caroline Bohlin, Maintenance Engineer.

Fanny's highlights

"It was very exciting to visit Krümmel nuclear power plant which is being decommissioned and Geesthacht pump power station in Hamburg but one specific highlight was to meet all the competent people, both trainees and other employees in Vattenfall". -Fanny Ladeborn, Project Engineer.
