The Stockholm University ‘’Korta Vägen’’ (‘’Shortcut’’) programme provides a way into the workplace for educated people who are new to Sweden. By taking part, Nynas has offered a helping hand and benefitted from a fresh perspective.
Entering the job market can be difficult, even without the added complication of recently having moved to a new country, where learning a language and understanding the cultural differences can be challenging.
The ''Korta Vägen'' programme offers individuals who have studied in higher education a chance to gain valuable knowledge in the work environment, develop their language skills, and contribute to the success of the placement company.
Ahmad Raji moved to Sweden from his native Afghanistan in November 2015. With a background in procurement, he was identified as a strong candidate for Nynas' Naphthenic Supply Chain department, and began his internship in November of 2017.
''For Ahmad it's great to get work experience, and it feels like a win-win process. We have a new pair of eyes on what we're doing, to find possible improvements, and work on optimisation,'' says Stina Wiqvist, Head of Naphthenic Supply Chain EMEA.
While taking the opportunity to improve his written and spoken Swedish, Ahmad also expanded his professional network, and enjoyed his time working with Supply Chain.
''I found the team to be helpful and friendly, and I met colleagues from many different departments of Nynas,'' he says.
At Nynas we believe that different approaches and fresh ideas can be key components of a successful team.
