“Making the switch from cars to HGV and stepping into Scania from a related industry has been incredibly rewarding and I enjoyed a warm welcome. I've relished the chance to upskill, receive specialised training, and seamlessly apply my transferable skills. Being embraced by this team feels like finding my professional home. With boundless opportunities for career progression ahead, I'm eager to dive in and see where this journey takes me.”

“This programme is allowing me to apply my transferable skills and experience to date whilst learning new ones and has transformed my career path. I’m excited for my future here.  Since joining Scania, I have only had one regret, I didn’t start sooner!”
