Northvolt has an exciting job offer for a Project Logistics Developer to join our excellent and passionate team in Stockholm. In joining us you will play an important part from the very start, building the network of European Lithium-Ion battery giga-factories. Northvolt will play a significant role in the transformation to a carbon free society.

The Project Logistics Developer's primary focus will be on planning and executing the processes of transportation and installation of heavy manufacturing and construction equipment from Asian and European suppliers, all the way to Northvolt's European factory sites. The role will be of pivotal importance in ensuring proper execution of the construction, installation and commissioning of Northvolt manufacturing sites' landscape.

The role will be based in Northvolt’s Stockholm head office with regular travels to Västerås, Skellefteå, Germany and Far East (China, Korea, Japan).

Together with the wider Northvolt Project Logistics Team you will:

  • Lead the preparations, planning, co-ordination and execution of land-side activities across supplier locations,

  • Lead the co-ordination of the schedule between internal Northvolt departments,
  • Support the local Site Logistics Teams in Skellefteå and beyond,
  • Take a lead role in developing and enhancing operational procedures,
  • Participate in structured and unstructured communication to ensure clarity around next steps and ultimate goals. Follow-up these with stakeholders and against timelines,
