We are looking for a dedicated and driven EHS (Environment, Health, Safety) Manager to join us in our mission to contribute to build the world’s greenest battery. The role is a part of our passionate Revolt Ett team based in Skellefteå. By joining us, you will be part of building the first in-house full recycling flow in the world.

About the job
The need to recycle batteries is increasing and the construction of Europe's largest recycling facility for batteries in Skellefteå is ongoing and will start its production process to separate out valuable metals for reuse in battery production during 2023. The goal is to source 50% of the raw materials needed for cell production from recycling by 2030 and therefore more recycling facilities are planned at site. So, forget about everything you thought you knew about working in the industry, this is going to be completely different!

We are looking for you who have experience from the production-, process or the chemical industry. For us, it is important that you are driven by the desire to create a good EHS culture and as a Manager you will develop and structure our strong sustainability vision into practice.

To succeed in the role, you should be flexible, driven, structured and can act decisively. You are pedagogical and have the ability to arouse commitment and are used to having government dialogues. You will be working in a cross-functional team and will be reporting to the Revolt Ett Operations Manager.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Ensuring compliance with all EHS legislation and that that work is performed in accordance with Northvolt’s Code of Conduct and policies as well as the management system routines and standards.
  • Identifying gaps when present, performing the necessary risk analyses, recommend solutions and ensuring that an action plan is both developed and executed on time.
  • Good experience of working with the management system ISO 45001 and other relevant ISO standards.

  • Regular reporting on health, safety and environment awareness, issues and statistics.

About the team

You will be a vital member of the Revolt Ett site management team in Skellefteå. You will work closely together at site with the Northvolt Ett EHS team and will receive support from many knowledgeable colleagues in Northvolt's organization. You should have experience and enjoy leading others and must prepare for a future expansion of the Revolt Ett EHS team. We also expect you to train and mentor colleagues and staff in EHS routines and standards.

The person we are looking for is driven and highly structured. You thrive by leading others and work towards common goals. You are used to a high paced work environment and got good time management skills. Qualities that we cherish are flexibility, sense of quality, friendliness, motivation to take on new challenges, grit and a sense of humor.

Northvolt is an equal opportunity employer. We're a diverse group of individuals, united by a common mission, who recognise that while our actions as individuals have a role to play in driving Northvolt towards its goals, we always seek to move forward as a team. We offer you an open and welcoming atmosphere where we win as a team – and fail as a team. Northvolt is growing at the speed of light and we are a strong believer in internal career development.

About the company

Northvolt makes green batteries for a blue planet. Affordable cells and high-quality battery systems. All manufactured with a record-low carbon footprint. Purposely built to provide Europe with the opportunity to switch to renewable energy – efficiently and entirely.

To accomplish this, we do things differently. We design, manufacture, and recycle everything under one roof. We even build our own factories. All this is incredibly challenging and requires us to think in unconventional ways. We’re constantly experimenting, learning and adapting to make batteries so great – they will one day make oil history.

Northvolt is growing fast. We’re staffing our international office in Stockholm, our R&D facility, Northvolt Labs, in Västerås, as well as our Gdansk facility for production of battery systems. We're also hiring for our gigafactory Northvolt Ett in Skellefteå, Sweden. We want to work with smart individuals from all disciplines. Strong individuals that truly want to make a positive impact on the future. Those of us already on board share a passion for our mission. We’re prepared to work hard in pursuit of excellence. We enjoy the ride and our main drive is to make a difference for real. As a team, we’re dedicated to thinking new, working hard and having fun.
