Cargotec Bulgaria is a company where young specialists and people with no prior experience, but with a desire for learning and development in their chosen career, can also find professional opportunities. The company offers a year-round internship programme for university students, which has been welcoming interns to the Finance, Human Resources and Indirect Procurement departments since 2019.
