Environmental Engineer - Reclamation

In Aitik outside Gällivare, there is by far Sweden's largest reclamation object in terms of area and volume, consisting of two open pits, waste rock dumps, a Tailings storage facility and industrial areas. A well-functioning and cost-effective closure of Boliden's operations in Aitik is a strategically important issue for the entire company. It is a prerequisite for obtaining future environmental permits and can also influence decisions on future investments. 


Today, there is an integrated closure plan for all objects that ensures that an acceptable water quality can be achieved in watercourses downstream of a closed Aitik. The plan, which according to Boliden's assessment is unique to Swedish conditions, is based on extensive investigative material produced in close collaboration with world-leading consultants in the subject area. However, reclamation of an ongoing, large-scale mining operation is a process that constantly needs to be developed. 



In the role of Environmental engineer reclamation, you have an overall responsibility for developing and keeping Aitik closure plan and closure costs up to date. You coordinate priority investigations together with the business area's environmental staff and participate in relevant parts of Boliden Mines' environmental network and knowledge exchange between Boliden various mining areas. You conduct and evaluate reclamation tests, including procurement of consultants and contractors, data collection, sampling, analysis and report writing. You collaborate with and train the local planning and implementation organization.

You are a civil engineer in the field of geotechnics and water or have a university degree with a focus on soil geochemistry / hydrology or equivalent. You have a good understanding of the system and good knowledge of geochemistry, hydrology and the environment. Knowledge of field methods for measurements and characterization, geochemical / hydrological modeling, economics, drawing management and construction work is an advantage. 


Driving license B and previous experience of project management is a requirement. Postgraduate education in and / or consulting experience from the subject area and adjacent areas is an advantage. You must be able to communicate freely in Swedish and English in both speech and writing. 


We are looking for you who want a challenging and stimulating job. You have a great interest in the subject area and want to contribute to developing it. You do not hesitate to move between more routine work and the absolute research front. You are independent and driven at the same time as you find it stimulating to work with others and learn from or educate them. You have a systematic sense of order and the ability to prioritize.
