Employee experiences



I am motivated by the great feeling of success. It gives me endless joy to be able to perform well in my tasks. Also, the working environment is encouraging for self-development. I feel that there are many opportunities for developing your own skillset and advancing your career at Valmet, if you want.


I recommend working in my team to a person who is open to learn new and enjoys problem solving. You should also be comfortable in working as a team, but also ready to take responsibility for your own projects independently!

Freia, Project Engineer, Finland


During the internship I was working with the Global Talent Management Team as an HR-trainee. I enjoyed working with encouraging HR professionals who taught me a lot about working in a global environment. I got to do various tasks and gained valuable experience during my internship.


I find it important that the company's values match with my own. I like and respect that Valmet embraces diversity and emphasizes a safe and healthy environment.

Petra, HR Trainee, Finland



In my work I have the chance to learn new things and challenge myself – every day. My goal is to offer exceptional customer experience; seeing the customer happy with my work motivates me. Collaboration is strong in our team and I like to take care of my own responsibilities to enable our team’s success. Shared success with the team motivates me to continue delivering high quality field services.


My typical work tasks are very different during my office days and customer visits. When I am working at the office I am usually in contact with customers and other colleagues related to reporting and projects. During field days I am at customer’s sites and I do visual inspections related to boilers and flue gas cleaning equipment and report findings to the customers.
