Saab Graduate Leadership Programme


The Saab Graduate Leadership Programme is a career starter for recent graduates and young professionals who have the potential and desire to become future leaders at Saab.
The diversity of roles at Saab is reflected in the programme. We are looking for individuals with the right skills to lead technological development, lead people and lead change. As a graduate at Saab you will participate in a programme that is uniquely designed to boost your career. You will receive an extensive overview of the company, a broad contact network and challenging tasks that will prepare you for the future. Your development will be aligned with Saab's business goals and the programme will let you contribute to our business and deliver as part of actual projects. From day one, you will be appointed to a position with permanent employment at one of Saab's sites worldwide.

Programme description
The programme contains elements that are common to all graduates yet it can also be customised to ensure that each graduate's development can be optimised according to their own goals and their home department's targets. The programme runs for 14 months and consists of three main components; Team weeks, Individual Weeks and Assignment Abroad. Being a graduate is a full time job. Some of the courses that you will participate in during the team weeks include Self-knowledge, Team development, Communication skills, Business and Culture.

Besides the main components, the programme will include tasks to be solved as a team and as individuals. During the programme you will be supported by your line manager, a senior manager, a mentor, the Saab Academy and previous participants in the programme. After the year as a graduate you will continue your journey at Saab, working at the department into which you were recruited.

Recruitment Process
The next application period will open November 1st 2018 for programme start in september 2019. 
Apply accordingly: Go to our open positions and search for "Position type", "Trainee and Graduate". Apply to the different position/s that suits your background. You can apply to several positions in the programme.

Are you a future leader?
For us, being a leader is not restricted to management but covers technical leaders, project managers, change leaders and many more. Therefore, we are looking for people in a wide range of areas. The educational background we are looking for differs from year to year. Historically, we have recruited graduates to the fields of Engineering, Human Recourses, Information Technology, Business Management, Marketing and Finance, Purchasing etc.

To be a successful candidate, you need to have a Bachelor's or Master's degree. This you combine with strong drive, motivation and commitment. On top of that, you have a genuine interest in interacting with people and a desire to influence and contribute to our company. But remember, being a graduate is an opportunity, not a promise. So, make full use of that opportunity – and we will help you grow within Saab.
