Today Southeast Asia has more than 670 million inhabitants and a combined GDP of 9,34 trillion USD driven by massive investments in physical and digital infrastructure, increased value-add and strengthened pace of innovation in the manufacturing sector together with a rapidly growing middle class driving domestic consumption overtaking exports as primary driver of growth. Malaysia has for long been one of Sweden’s most important trading partners in Southeast Asia. Large investments aimed at increasing productivity in the private sector, has created opportunities for Swedish solutions and know-how. With an economic growth of ~5 percent annually, the economy is expected to continue its positive trajectory. We see great potential for Business Sweden in Malaysia, driven by digitalization, innovation and sustainability within e.g. Industry 4.0, mobility, smart energy and healthcare, and this is a great opportunity to develop your career in a truly inspiring market and the wider region.

As Consultant you will be working in a challenging role where you provide support to our clients in their international growth and establishment in Malaysia and wider Southeast Asia. You will work independently as well as in teams, in different consulting and promotional assignments, and manage smaller projects yourself. You will interact with many stakeholders ranging from clients, governmental agencies, colleagues and team members.

What we offer:

  • Insights into multiple sectors and business models within e.g. Industry 4.0, mobility, smart energy and healthcare
  • Projects with start-ups and large multinationals

You are analytical and will be working in project teams collecting and analysing market insights and presenting to clients or client’s clients. Social skills and the ability to connecting the dots are also important since our work is much driven by interactions with external stakeholders.

You will support senior colleagues in client dialogues, identification of new business opportunities and in developing customer proposals.

We have a strong and dedicated team, and we set the bar high for applicants’ aptitude for analysing market drivers, interacting with corporate leaders, and solving problems in a challenging and exciting international setting.
