Ansök till


The elevator and door industry is in great need of trained technicians with modern skills. Motum therefore wants to ensure high-quality training for elevator and door technicians. The work as an elevator and door technician is a practical and varied job where you are out in the field a lot and install, modernize, service and repair elevators and doors.

During the basic education, you as a student will be employed on a fixed-term basis with a salary in one of Motum’s subsidiaries, and after passing the training you will be offered employment in the same company. Directly after employment, six months of mandatory additional training with a focus on practice begins. The practical part of the training will be carried out at the place of employment, while the theoretical parts will be carried out at the group’s training centre, Motum Academy in Stockholm.
