If you are interested in innovations, technological change and the way research makes it possible to push technological boundaries, Saab is the place to work. All Saab employees contribute to this every day in one way or another and I must admit that I get very excited and astonished every time I visit a new department and learn about what they are doing. To give you a hint, it is really cool to see the construction of a new generation of Gripens or our world-leading Radar Systems in action. Knowing that I contribute to real projects like these is thrilling - I am sure you understand what I mean.
Another reason why I think that Saab is such a great place to work is the international opportunities that arise when having customers in over 100 countries worldwide and colleagues with over 60 nationalities. I love to experience other cultures and to meet people with different backgrounds, the fact that this is possible within Saab is therefore very important to me. I believe working in a global environment creates new dimensions of personal growth and development opportunities. One day I would like to live and work in another country, which I am sure will be possible within Saab. My first assignment abroad is coming up in a few weeks and I will definitely tell you more about this in another blog post.
Another interesting aspect of our business is the complex intergovernmental affairs that often take many years to finalize. Since our customers mainly consist of governments and state authorities, our business is strongly influenced by politics. I believe that working in a complex business environment maximizes opportunities to learn and develop in many different areas.
If you value international environments and if you would like to maximize your opportunities to grow both professionally and personally, you should definitely apply to the next year’s programme!
