Greetings from your future colleague:

“I moved to Krakow in August 2017 and from the beginning the city and especially UPM HR Service Center has felt like home. For me, there are two major factors for this: my colleagues and our daily ways of working in self-steering teams. Our different backgrounds provide a base for shared responsibilities and here in HRSC we truly have a passion to develop ourselves and our processes. I, as a member of the Finnish Learning Team, have for example found my interest in the field of digital learning.” - Veli-Pekka Pajunen, HR Specialist
