Northvolt is looking for a talented and dedicated Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) Manager to the ongoing establishment of a battery production facility in Kvarnsveden, Borlänge.

About the job

If selected, you will serve a key role in the governance regarding the care and protection of our employees. Northvolt's employees are by far our most important and valuable assets. This position revolves around ensuring compliance with Health, Safety, Environment legislation/regulations in both construction and manufacturing operations, you will build a HSE team on site ensuring outstanding performance in these aspects.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Ensuring compliance with all HSE legislation
  • Continually maintain an appropriate level of awareness, knowledge, and preparedness to create a culture that prioritizes effective HSE
  • Identifying gaps when present, performing the necessary risk analyses, and ensuring that an action plan is both developed and executed on time
  • Highlighting shortcomings which are not being properly addressed or are persistent issues, continuously, up to the level necessary until they are resolved (when issues are delegated and left unresolved, you take over ownership)
  • Monitoring compliance to policies and laws by inspecting employees and operations
  • Environmental permits and contact with authorities
  • Regular reporting on health and safety awareness, issues, environmental performance and statistics

You genuinely care for people and find it easy to influence others through indirect leadership. You can be a bit nerdy in finding a good structure and creating rules and systems. At the same time you are creative and flexible, allowing you to figure out how to solve problems in the least burdensome, expedient manner.

The ability to execute on complex and comprehensive tasks in a developing industry is key, as you will be working on a site that will be under construction while also preparing to transform it into a world-class battery manufacturing site.
