Some of our colleagues

My name is Alexander and I have recently been in the above-described recruitment process. All consultants at Axholmen have, in addition to their role as a consultant, the opportunity to take internal responsibility for driving the development of Axholmen as a company. As a new addition to the team, I have taken shared reasonability for our Associate recruitment. This includes hosting a student event and the recruitment day during fall.
If you have any questions about the event, recruitment process or what it is like to work at Axholmen. Contact me at alexander.fahnehjelm@axholmen.se. Hope to see you this fall!

Alexander Fahnehjelm

What I like most about Axholmen is the fantastic culture we have in combination with all the exciting projects. Already as an associate, you are encouraged to participate in business development through internal commitments, which is a lot of fun! At the same time, you are surrounded by supportive colleagues and can easily combine being a management consultant with a life outside of work.
