As a part of the company’s global network, the Oulu factory is Nokia Networks’ key manufacturing location for radio products in Europe. Close collaboration between factory product specialists as well as research and development departments ensures the fast and efficient ramp up of new products. The team also manages product transfers and technical support to other manufacturing locations throughout the product life cycle.

Material Execution and Supply Chain Management are responsible for material availability in short-term time horizon by managing and continuously developing supply chain in order to fulfill customer expectations. These organizations are also accountable for Inventory management, supplier collaboration and total landed cost.
 
In this position, as a Buyer trainee you will be responsible for purchasing components, units or mechanics for base station products, or as other Supply Chain Specialist (various roles) trainee you may work related to supplier collaboration, component sales, Import & Export or iHUB operations activities. This will involve you in a daily routine where you will cooperate and be in contact with many different suppliers or other external stakeholders of ours globally. In addition, you will work closely with supply chain as well as other operations functions, such as production and R&D.
 
Due to the close-quarter nature of the business connection, it is extremely important that you are able to maintain positive relations with our suppliers and/or other stakeholders internally and externally. Nokia Networks is committed to develop advanced solutions for communications to ensure that information is shared in the easiest and most efficient way possible. Operations handle operations and sourcing, common product structures, product coding and product data management concepts and see that they are successfully implemented throughout Nokia Solutions and Networks.
 
Trainee roles are great way to learn new skills and face challenges come about in a regular five-day job. Here you will learn every day about a whole range of technologies, products, systems and tools. However, it is necessary that you bring some embedded characteristics with you. Strong negotiating skills with the ability to get your point across to others on the opposite side of the table are the keys to success in this job.
 
Ideally, you have an engineering or commercial background. It would be a real benefit if you have some experience or familiarity of telecommunications or in purchasing, logistics, production, quality assurance and R&D. You can communicate effectively in written and spoken English and work independently or in a small team, from whose members you will get all the support you need. Now is the right time to make your summertime worthwhile.
 
We are looking forward to receiving your application in English, detailing your studies and areas of interest. Please include a copy of your academic record. We are also eager to hear about any relevant skills you have, and your possible previous working experience. As well as an accurate picture of your know how, we would like to be given an idea of what you are expecting to gain from a summer spent with us. If everything works out right, we will see you at an interview in the coming spring.
