This is us, trying something new. We offer you a chance to start at Volvo Group Trucks Purchasing, without the expectations of knowing exactly which position you want to work with beforehand; but instead learning and experiencing as a first step.

Together we will learn about your strengths, passions and which areas you like the most – and then find a position where you really thrive knowing you are doing what you most enjoy, having tried out different roles within our organization.
