The most important job of the future

We want to lead the transformation of our industry towards a sustainable future. And in the same way that we want to change the world, we want to develop everyone who is with us on the journey, personally and professionally. Do you want to help shape the future of the world's mining and mineral industry?

Samhällsomvandlingen's mission is to secure land access with good foresight to secure LKAB's mining operations and growth plans. This means that around a third of Malmfälten's population, corresponding to 10,000 people, will be successively relocated. In total, approximately 5,000 homes and 700,000 square meters of living and office space will be replaced within the framework of the community transformation.

The staff works task-directed with project management, administrative support that ensures the quality of the entire unit's management system, working methods and routines and assists the unit manager in leading the business.

Your role

The project coordinator's role is to actively support the work with assigned projects within the Social Transformation, together with responsible project managers and colleagues. The work is carried out in close collaboration with the project section within the Social Transformation in Kiruna, which is the client of the project coordinators within the staff.

As a project coordinator, your role is to maintain the structure of the project. You are expected to take personal responsibility for planning and carrying out your assignment.

  • Participate in the preparation and follow-up of request documents, procurements, contracts
  • Assist the project with coordinating resources
  • If necessary, contact stakeholders, authorities, suppliers and other professionals
  • Independently handle limited questions/assignments that arise during the course of the project

You carry out the work in a structured and responsible manner with support from your colleagues and clients. Since the service involves the processing of sensitive information, confidentiality is important.

You have this with you

Characteristics we value are that you have good communication skills, can easily collaborate in different work groups and take great responsibility for independently driving the work forward.

In order to fit the role, we also see that you are analytical and systematic in your work, at the same time that you can quickly re-prioritize if necessary.

We expect you to have:

  • Secondary education
  • B driver's license
  • Good knowledge of Swedish and English
  • Post-secondary education in a relevant field and knowledge/experience of working with projects are meritorious

  • Enhanced parental allowance of up to 90 percent of your regular salary for up to six months (after employment for one year)
