Apply

Suominen is always looking for the best talent. Factors such as your gender or ethnic background are irrelevant to us. Only attitude, capabilities and merits matter.

If you think your expertise would not fit Suominen, think outside the box for a moment – just like we do.

We would not be able to pursue Suominen’s vision, to change the way people think about nonwovens, by being a conventional manufacturing company, by doing what others do.

 

Instead, we want to be pioneers in our industry by looking for opportunities where others don’t see them yet. This applies also to recruiting at Suominen: In addition to experts in essential areas, e.g., material science and manufacturing, we hire professionals whose know-how is not typically utilized in the nonwovens industry, such as fast-moving consumer goods experts and modern demand/supply chain management specialists.

Please send us an open application and we may well be interested.

Do I qualify, do I fit in? That is something many people ask themselves before applying. Our answer is: Let us find out. Hiring is an agreement between two parties, which is based on a mutual fit. In any case, send us your application.

Open application

 

We are always looking for the best talent – regardless of age, ethnic background, gender or other irrelevant criteria.

Suominen constantly hires in Product Development, Sales, Manufacturing, Finance and Marketing, for example, but not all open positions are made public. That is why sending us an open application gives you an upper hand when we start to look for new employees. We store the open applications for six months, and when there is a new job opening at Suominen, we look at the received open applications first.

Feel free to send us your open application.

 

Students and graduates

 

Suominen provides work opportunities for students and graduates periodically in, for example, Product Development, Logistics, Manufacturing and Finance. However, we are always interested in hearing more from ambitious and talented people, regardless of what they have studied or what they specialize in.

If you are interested in Suominen’s work opportunities for students and graduates, please send us an open application.
