We are currently looking for outstanding Executive Assistants to join our EA team in supporting the members of Northvolt’s Executive Management team. This is a rolling application as we anticipate hiring for multiple positions over the next year – please don’t wait to apply as we’re interviewing on a constant basis!
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 and your work has a direct impact on their success. 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. We expect you to work proactively, anticipating the needs of the Executive and organisation you work for and regularly handling confidential and critical details with a high level of discretion. Cross-functionally, you’ll be a part of our high performing EA Team, working closely together to support each other and keep the Executive Management Team performing at their best.
We’re looking for candidates with 5+ years of experience working at a relevant level in a fast-paced environment. You have ideally worked at large scale and/or complex organisation and have experience interacting with suppliers and customers. Experience working in business areas involving Engineering, Construction, Manufacturing, or Finance is especially interesting, and Start Up experience is always a plus.
Northvolt is in a continual growth period, which means that the ability to take on, drive, and manage a large variety of ad hoc projects across the organisation in a proactive way is vital for this role. 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 multiple sites and stakeholders to ensure smooth synchronisation of work streams.
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 spoken and written, are required.

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.

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.
