What you´ll do

Our current HR Business partner with Market expansion responsibilities is leaving us at year end and we are looking for a successor. The role is a mixed role of being responsible to drive the HR initiatives required to put our legal entities in place, such as payroll, employment contracts, pension, policies etc, but also when the legal entities are put in place be the HR Business partner for those markets. As this type of expansion is new to many of us we work as a team supporting each other and the role works in close collaboration with colleagues in Finance, Legal and the Global Sales team to put the sales organisation in place in each market. You are not alone in this complex role, but we expect you to find joy in being the one driving the actions and making things happen. It’s an incredible exciting opportunity for an experienced HR Professional to be part of an early journey to establish companies across Europe and influence the companies from the very start - from hiring the very first MD to the first employee handbook. The role is based in Gothenburg, part of the Global HR Team and reports to the Global Head of HR.

If you want to have a once in a lifetime experience this is it! And as a bonus – our HR team is awesome!
