In the role, you will have close interaction and play a critical role to Christofer Haux and his management teams. You will be responsible for his daily administration (calendar, travel, and meeting support) and supporting his management teams who focus on sales in the Automotive industry and enabling NV Drei in Germany - you are the hub and your work has a direct impact on their success.

We’re looking for candidates with 2-5 years of experience working at a relevant level in a fast-paced environment.

About the Executive Assistant role:

The Executive Assistant at Northvolt is much more than a traditional secretary. With a high level of energy, a clear vision, and a passion for organization 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 organization you work for. 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.

Northvolt is in a continual growth period, which means that the ability to drive a large variety of ad hoc projects across the organization in a proactive way is vital for this role. You excel at spotting what needs fixing and making sure that happens. As an Executive Assistant, you will need to work and collaborate cross-functionally with multiple sites and stakeholders to ensure the smooth synchronization of work streams.

We believe that you are solution-oriented 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, the ability to quickly build and maintain large internal networks, and a true love for working in a fast-moving environment, are key success factors.

What you will do:

  • Support your Executive with all calendar administration, travel bookings and meeting support
  • Work closely with your Executive’s Management Teams to set agendas, prepare presentations, document meeting minutes and plan delegatory work
  • Organize meetings, customer visits, special events and off-sites
  • Gain unique insight on how an agile and fast-forward company in an evolving industry is run
  • Get the opportunity to grow into a new role in the organization after 3 years

What you will not do

  • Work as a traditional assistant/secretary
  • Only be exposed to admin. and limited to the same role during your entire career at Northvolt – we want to grow our employees!

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.
