We are looking for an outstanding Executive Assistant to support Northvolt´s VP of Cell Operations and his management team, particularly the CEO of Northvolt Ett, our Skellefteå gigafactory.

The Executive Assistant at Northvolt is much more than a traditional secretary and plays a critical role for our executives and their teams - you are the hub. With a high level of energy, a clear vision and a passion for organisation you make things run smoothly while flexibly pivoting to accommodate last minute changes. You’re responsible for anticipating the needs of the Cell Operations organisation and regularly handling confidential and critical details with a high level of discretion.

You excel at spotting what needs fixing and making sure that happens. As an EA, you will need to work and collaborate cross functionally with various sites and stakeholders to ensure smooth synchronisation of work streams. Organising and supporting customer and supplier visits and events will be an part of the job.

We believe that in addition to being an experienced EA, you are solution-oriented, prestigeless, and exceptionally service-minded. You should like structure, in particular implementing new structures, and have great attention to detail without losing the overall picture. A positive attitude, ability to quickly build and maintain large internal networks, and true love for working in a fast-moving, sometimes hectic, environment, are key success factors. Excellent English language skills, both written and oral, are required

Key Responsibilities:

  • Plan, organize and manage complex calendars for the VP of Cell Operations and the CEO of Northvolt Ett
  • Provide additional ad hoc support for the leaders across the Cell Ops organisation

  • Collect and prepare information for use in presentations/meetings of executive staff

  • Document meeting minutes and manage & follow up on action items
  • Organize meetings, board/customer/vendor visits, special events and off-sites
  • Work with the Office Manager, HR, Finance, Communications, Business Development and other teams to help out and synchronise work streams – ensure that things run smoothly across the cross-organisational site
  • Proactive management of reoccurring and adhoc projects, large and small

Not only will you work closely with an outstanding team of people at an exciting company, you will also get the chance to be part of financing and building the largest European battery manufacturing company which will play an important role in the acceleration and transformation to a carbon free society.

Please apply with an English language CV, your complete LinkedIn profile, as well as an English language cover letter. We review applications on a rolling basis, so don’t wait to submit.
