Financial Control FP/A

Take the chance to join a new team expanding into the future! “This is a the most dynamic, fun and rewarding financial role you can imagine”. Yes, that’s an actual quote from the hiring manager.

Let us describe the challenge we offer

Financial steering is the basis for an efficient and informed decision process. We are building the new Polestar Group Financial planning and analysis (FP&A) team to connect the Group’s consolidated long-term strategic plans to short-term financial targets and provide forecasts for the coming twelve months. We are aiming for a team from different backgrounds and experiences to create a creative and dynamic environment. This requires the need to combine skills. A broad understanding of accounting and business operations is equally important as is an interest in finding key assumptions and trends that can impact future performance. We are going to develop a data driven forecasting model, taking both business specific and macro events into account. The FP&A team are in frequent contact with all areas of Polestar, working globally across all functions to get a comprehensive view of the financial activities within the group.

This position is located at our HQ, in Gothenburg. We understand that work-life balance isn’t easy, and of course, welcome our employees to work flexible hours and from home a couple of days per week if needed. We believe in empowerment.

At Polestar, you will be part of a cross-functional and international team, with English as a natural language for written and spoken communication. Since Polestar’s in a scale-up phase you thrive by working in a fast-paced environment.

We are looking for an open-minded and driven team player with a holistic mindset who is articulate and communicative with a high level of business acumen. Good analytical skills are also a key factor of this role as well as being organised. Further you like to roll-up your sleeves in a hands-on capacity and work with team members to solve whatever challenge is at hand. You are highly organised but also team oriented and feel motivated by working both independently and as an integral part of the team, and you are good at prioritising and think creatively.
