To succeed in the role you have a structured approach while being flexible and “hands on” and able to provide advice to the many on-going initiatives that need the attention.

You have experience from working with larger projects and processes and to coach and lead others to get the job done. You like administrative tasks as well and handle them in a structured, detail-oriented way with the bigger picture in mind. You are the kind of social chameleon that can communicate with all types of people and have a positive attitude that will get you noticed.

The must-have’s:

• 3-5 years experience of project management, preferably within administration. It’s a plus if you are familiar with HR processes and recruitment.

• A few years of experience of leadership within larger projects and processes

• Preferably you have a bachelor’s degree, or the equivalence within project management or business administration

• Ability to recognize and respond to multiple priorities in a rapidly changing environment

• Strong business acumen with the ability to present and promote ideas – ability to influence others to achieve desired results and meet all deadlines.

• Skilled in using digital solutions

• Fluent in Swedish and English, written and spoken
