The role will be based in Skellefteå at Northvolt’s Ett site, with initially frequent travels to Stockholm and Västerås.

You will be the first in a group of four Northvolt Ett site logistics co-ordinators and therefore lay foundations for your future team mates and the Northvolt Ett site logistics.

In close co-operation with Northvolt Central Project Logistics Team, you will:

  • Be responsible for planning, co-ordinating and executing activities between different internal and external resources to ensure that individual logistical assignments are carried at the right time and with the right quality,
  • Ensure that necessary resources (e.g heavy lifters) and appropriate equipment are at the site at the right place, when required,
  • Partake in developing and enhancing operational procedures, follow these and make sure that regulatory and safety requirements are considered and met,
  • Participate in structured and unstructured communication to ensure clarity around next steps and ultimate goals. Follow-up these with stakeholders and against timelines,
