We are looking for someone who is meticulous, good at following routines and interested in participating in the development of maintenance in Svappavaara Sovringsverk.

The most important job of the future

We want to lead the transformation of our industry towards a sustainable future. And in the same way that we want to change the world, we want to develop everyone who is with us on the journey, personally and professionally. Do you want to help shape the future of the world's mining and mineral industry?

LKAB's open-pit mines are located in Svappavaara, four miles southeast of Kiruna. In these open pits, we loosen iron ore and waste rock by drilling and blasting, and then load, crush and sow the ore into a raw material for pellet production. In Svappavaara, we offer you a workplace in a family environment with strong cohesion where you can develop in your position, combined with great opportunities for outdoor life.

Your role

In the role of greaser, you are a committed team player who runs and develops the department together with your colleagues. In our sleeping plant, you work outdoors in collaboration with other groups in maintenance and production, such as crusher operators, mechanics and other lubricators.

The work involves preventive work according to a set schedule where emergency interventions are also required. The work is independent and you work quality-consciously, carefully and follow routines. Our goal is to keep our high-tech mining and mineral group afloat, and there you will be an important piece of the puzzle.

Your everyday life as a greaser:

  • Monitoring and maintenance of central lubrication equipment
  • Scheduled lubrication routines via checklists
  • Error reporting
  • Material order
  • Reporting of error reports & round lists
  • Various component repairs
  • Hose production if necessary

  • Completed upper secondary education or equivalent is a requirement
  • B driving license is a requirement
  • You must be able to master the Swedish language in speech and writing

This is what you get

  • Motivation program that rewards success
  • Health care and study support as well as access to art association, leisure association, mountain cabins and family activities
  • Enhanced parental allowance with up to 90% of your regular salary for up to six months. (After employment for one year)
  • Help with support in case of illness or questions about the working environment, health, wellness and rehabilitation
