Northvolt has an exciting job offer for a Project Logistics Manager to join our excellent and passionate team in Borlänge. In joining us you will play an important part from the very start, building the network of European Lithium-Ion battery giga-factories. Northvolt will play a significant role in the transformation to a carbon free society.

The Project Logistics Manager's primary focus will be to grow, lead and develop a site-based Project Logistics team who design and implement logistics solutions for heavy process equipment during the construction phase of Northvolt's recently announced Borlänge facility.

Secondly, you are a supply chain professional at heart. You understand the importance of planning before the execution kicks in and the sequence of events of a logistical process. The Project Logistics Manager will be the key link between the wider Project Logistics team and site based stakeholders focused on the construction and commissioning of the facility as well as the logistical infrastructure partners.


In broad terms, Project Logistics is responsible to secure end to end logistical solutions for process equipment, from vendor to installation with the highest focus on QHSSE, Schedule & Budget.


First and foremost - you are a hands-on leader. You are a natural when it comes to human interaction, managing a broad scope of activities across a very busy team. You have a good feel for people and you know how to, together with them, celebrate good times, as well as pull through dire straits.

Generally speaking, you have a high degree of experience within logistical operations, preferably in an industrial projects setting. You are absolutely excellent in multi-tasking and prioritizing. You understand the importance of structure and communication, especially across cultures and time zones, as means to ensure clarity and reach common goals within specific time frames.

The role will be based at Northvolt’s Borlänge site with regular travels to Stockholm, Västerås, Skellefteå and other Northvolt facilities.

Together with the wider Northvolt Project Logistics Team you will:

  • Lead the preparations, planning, co-ordination and execution of land-side activities spanning last mile, storage and last meter handling for the process equipment installed in this facility,
  • Ensure forecasting and plan solutions accordingly,
  • Ensure QHSSE and document compliance,
  • Lead the co-ordination of the schedule between internal Northvolt departments,
  • Support the centrally based Long-haul focused Project Logistics team,
  • Design, implement and enhance operational procedures,

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.
