In Russia, Mondi Syktyvkar has invested in an overseas educational programme for promising young students called ‘Be successful with Mondi’. Talented students are selected through open competition and Mondi Syktyvkar sponsors their living and education costs at recognised technical schools abroad and hires them upon the completion of their studies. The first student supported is Alexandra Shmeleva. After completing her bachelor’s degree in ecology at the Syktyvkar Forestry Institute, Alexandra worked in the mill’s production laboratory for a year, after which she entered into the competition and won.
“I’m happy to be a pioneer in this project. It’s really a great opportunity for talented young students to build a career in an international company.” said Alexandra Shmeleva Student.
