Living in wonderful Norrbotten

Do you want to work in an attractive environment and feel that you get a balance between your work and your private life? We can offer something that few other mining companies can - a unique living environment in one of the world's most beautiful regions. Alongside the mining operations, there is a vibrant community, a strong and innovative business and a good quality of life for our employees and their families. In Norrbotten there is room for everyone. Welcome!

Did you know that …

There are a quarter of a million of us here, but we do not have to queue or crowd each other out, because Norrbotten is pretty big – in fact, it covers a quarter of Sweden’s area. We have the country's highest mountain and the world's largest underground iron ore mine. Here are some more facts that may leave you curious to find out more about Sweden's most welcoming and innovative county.
