There has been a lot of focus on the actual trainee program so I figured that some of you would be interest in the practicalities around our International Management Trainee Program.


Handheld headquarter is situated in Lidköping, Sweden which is roughly 1 ½ hour drive from Gothenburg and 4 hours from Stockholm. The apartments in Lidköping are rather cheap but there are also a lot of rentals if you prefer that.  When it comes to exercising and sports we play floorball (innebandy) weekly and all the Handheld employees has got free memberships at the local gym. There are also several local sport activities that anyone can join.


Handheld stand for all the costs as accommodation, car, flights etc so you don’t have to worry about these kinds of practicalities. We always stay at nice hotels with access to gym & sauna etc. We also host an annual ski trip to the Alps where we catch up with all our international colleagues for a nice off-piste and one or two après-skis.

Something I forgot???    If so, please post a comment!

All the best
