We are on a super exciting journey to the marketplace future. Even if we have the best crew onboard, we know that we cannot get there without great steering, smart decisions and knife-sharp analysis. This is where you enter the picture as our next Strategy Analyst. You will be in the middle of the middle, talking to everyone everywhere, and making it clearer for us all what to hold on to on a road that probably will be a little bumpy. So bring your analysis brain cells, excel power and presentation magic - there will be some great action going forward. You will be our compass, guide and map, that knows exactly where we are and where we are heading. No pressure, but a pretty heavy role. Next stop - next generations marketplaces!
We are Blocket, Sweden’s largest and most popular marketplace with around 12,3M monthly active users generating 100 million sessions. We are proud of our work to enable the second-hand trade in Sweden and our contribution to a positive environmental impact.

What you will be up to
As a Strategy Analyst you will be our expert and ambassador for Blocket’s vision, strategy and direction. Your overarching objective will be to drive precise analyses and projects aiming to create long-term value for all of Blocket. Super clear! But what does it actually mean? Well, you will:
be responsible for developing and operating Blocket’s strategy- and goal management process (BAAM)
facilitate the yearly Strategy Process in close collaboration with the Head of Strategy.
act as a project leader for strategic business development
In periods the BAAM process and strategy process will take most of your time. In other periods, it won’t, so during those you will project lead strategic business development efforts like the rest of the team.
No matter what you do, you will work close to the senior decision-makers and have stakeholders everywhere in all functions and teams. You will be our one and only Strategy Analyst, but work close with the rest of the small but powerful awesome Strategy Team.
To be even more specific on what you will spend your days on, examples of tasks are: developing business cases for investment decisions (both organic and inorganic), define and communicate Blocket’s strategy, prepare board materials, and set up and follow Blocket’s KPIs. You will also occasionally work with Blocket’s sister sites in Nordic Marketplaces (e.g. FINN.no, Tori.fi) and the wider Schibsted organization.
Who you are
So far in your career, you have gained experience from strategic analysis and project management which makes you an experienced project leader and presentator. You master presentation and analysis tools. You have a curious mind, a passion for solving problems as well as data analysis and synthesis. The mission of creating a clear strategic direction for Blocket really thrills your mind. Since you will be in the middle of everything, you need to have the sewing skills to have the bits and pieces come clear together to the map that will help us accelerate to the future.
