You will work broadly with issues related to mine closure and extractive waste management along Boliden’s entire value chain. From planning of operations with close cooperation with exploration, to support for our actively producing units, to facilities that are planning to be closed and facilities in need of additional closure measures. The work includes, among other things: 

  • Participate in and/or act as project manager for projects related to the development of Waste Management Plans and Closure Plans, 
  • Participate in and/or act as project manager for Extractive Waste Management and Closure projects, 
  • Drive skills development and capacity building within Boliden Mines in the field of Mine Closure and Extractive Waste Management,

You have a university degree in engineering or earth sciences, with a suitable specialization or education in environmental science, geology, geochemistry, hydrology, or water chemistry.

A strong background in project management is also preferred. You have at least 5 years of experience within the mining or extractive industries either directly or as a consultant. 


We are looking for a person who is result-oriented and has a good sense of planning and prioritization. You enjoy identifying and finding solutions to problems. Contacts with both external and internal partners will be a central part of your job, so it is important to have good collaboration skills and that collaboration is natural for you.  


The position requires that you can express yourself fluently both orally and in writing in English.
