About the program

Nordic Nuclear Trainee Programme (NNTP) is a unique opportunity for young talents. The program will give extensive skills and training for young nuclear professionals who are in the early stage in their career, and it will also offer a great possibility to build networks among nuclear professionals in the Nordic countries. NNTP is organized jointly by Fortum, Teollisuuden Voima, Uniper and Vattenfall. You can read more about our cooperation at

Between the seminar weeks, work rotations and project assignment, you will work with your colleagues in a regular position in the organization. It is the second time all four Nuclear operators in the Nordic join forces to give you as Trainee knowledge of the different operators, their Nuclear business and how it all links together. You will learn the similarities and differences of being an Nuclear operator in Sweden and Finland and how different stakeholders, authorities and other organizations that have an impact on our business and industry.

Caroline's highlights

2018 we launched our first nuclear trainee programme. 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.
