The Company:

LKAB is an international and high-tech mining and minerals group that mines and upgrades the unique iron ore of northern Sweden for the global steel market. Sustainability is core to our business and our ambition is to be one of the industry’s most innovative, resource-efficient and responsible companies. The group had sales of about SEK 31 billion in 2019 and employs about 4,300 people in 12 countries. Other group business includes industrial minerals, drilling systems, rail transport, rockwork services and property management.

The Mine Planning section (Gruvplaneringen) houses our primary functions for Geology, Diamond Drilling, Mine Planning, Mine Survey and Rock Mechanics. Our section consists of approximately 50 employees, which together in unison establish and develop the mine’s continuous mining plans. We develop our Mineral Reserve which is the basis for a strong Life of Mine Plan in Kiruna. Working for us means you hold an important part in the mine’s continuous development together with your competent and innovative colleagues. Here you’ll be a part of creating the foundation and conditions of the world’s most resource efficient and sustainable mine of the future.

The Opportunity:

Are you interested in developing the world’s largest and most modern underground mine for iron ore? Do you see yourself as a driven and thorough Senior Mine Engineer? Then you’re the one we’re looking for.

You also work with quality assurance of mining data and calculations that form the basis for our Mineral Reserve, which you help us assess according to the PERC-standard.

In the role, you work closely with key functions among our employees in the mine, which presupposes a communicative way of working and an ability to create good and dependable relations. We see you as flexible and development-oriented with an interest in the world around us and an ability to turn ideas into reality. You enjoy bringing different perspectives together and act as a bridge between the mine, our research department and universities and external experts.

Here you have the opportunity to work in the absolute forefront of the mining industry. As a Mining Engineer with us in Kiruna, you have access to the tools and colleagues to create an overview of the mine's development and thus the opportunity to become our most proficient expert.

Your Qualifications:

As a person, you have good collaboration and initiative taking skills, you work in a structured and independent manner with the ability to see challenges from a broader perspective.

You have good knowledge of English, both in speech and writing as well as good skills in computer management. We are looking for you with an academic education in rock technology.
