Northvolt has an exciting job offer for a Manufacturing Training Manager to join our team in Skellefteå.

In joining us you will play an important part from the very start in building one of the first large scale European battery factories. The Manufacturing Training Manager role will be responsible for developing and leading both the programs and the teams required to support technical competence development for our Northvolt Ett factory. This includes overall ownership of all aspects of staffing, budget, training strategy, and execution of technical trainings in our factory.

You will work closely with senior executives in production, central learning & development teams, engineering, and specialist functions to develop and drive world class training programs that are closely aligned with the business goals.

In general you have experience in development and implementation of training programs for high growth organisations or manufacturing and have a track record of building and leading excellent teams. Specifically, you are someone who has the ability to set the strategic direction, but also the drive to roll up your sleeves and do the dirty work of turning a strategy into reality on the ground.

You will be working with complex manufacturing processes and machines, so a background in manufacturing, engineering, or other technical fields is a benefit, but not a requirement.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Maintain overall business and stakeholder relationships with the senior leadership teams in Northvolt Ett.
  • Recruit, train, and develop a world class team
  • Design, develop, and implement training programs and business support tools to address the competence needs of the Northvolt Ett organization
  • Work closely with the factory teams to determine competence gaps and develop strategies to address in both the short and long term.
  • Develop measurement and evaluation strategies to assess the impact of the programs you lead.

The person we are looking for is strongly goal oriented, curious and eager to learn. You will get the chance to have a real impact on our success story in Sweden (to start with) and see the results of your work. Our organization requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen.

Apply with CV and cover letter or your complete LinkedIn profile.

Full time employment, fixed salary.
Planned starting date is asap.

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.
