We are looking for an awesome Legal Counsel with a focus on corporate finance to join our bold legal team at our headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden, and play a part in our mission to create a greener future.

You will work with the legal and finance teams and your main responsibilities will be related to working with the corporate finance team on a variety of financial matters to support the group’s capital raising, from capital markets to project financing and everything in between. You will also advise more generally on strategic matters with financial impact. This will include negotiating, reviewing, and drafting different financial agreements; assisting the corporate finance team on various matters including setting up financing structure and maintaining ongoing financial relationships, and importantly assessing and balancing risks.

Other work will relate to joint ventures, incentive programs, and other aspects of day-to-day corporate law. Although your main responsibilities will be related to your expertise in corporate finance, you will support all different teams at Northvolt where needed within a wide range of legal matters.

The person we are looking for is business-oriented, curious, and eager to learn. Qualities that we value are friendliness, passion, 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 recognize that while our actions as individuals have a role to play in driving Northvolt toward 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.

Apply with a CV and cover letter.

Full-time employment, fixed salary.

The planned starting date is asap.

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.
