Safe energy production in a changing environment

The importance of hydropower for the green transition and as a socially critical infrastructure through its electricity production is challenged by the increasingly rapid digital development and an increasingly uncertain environment. In order to adapt the business to these changes in the world around us, we are now further strengthening the organization with new management positions in security.

Vattenfall Vattenkraft is looking for two group managers in security for Luleå, Umeå and/or Storuman!

The groups are part of the Safety department, which consists of just over 20 employees and is responsible for steering, coordinating and supporting in the safety area for Vattenfall Vattenkraft's other operations.

The department conducts activities in areas such as security (information security, physical security and personnel security), data protection, signal protection, fire protection, protection for third parties (Public Safety), security incident management, continuity and crisis preparedness, and civil defense. The work includes, among other things, that:

  • Analyze and manage the needs of the business against external requirements
  • Develop and communicate requirements, target images and plans
  • Manage and support in security matters
  • Follow-up of compliance and progress according to established plans
  • Lead and coordinate ongoing security work and development efforts (both internally and with external parties).

Group manager security coordination and handling

You will lead a group that currently consists of approximately 10 employees who mainly work with analysis, requirements, support and follow-up to maintain and develop security protection and other security areas. Together with your colleagues, you will be part of and strengthen the safety practice that is a prerequisite for the continuity and continued development of Vattenfall Vattenkraft's socially important operations.

Group manager authorization and security administration

You will lead a group that currently consists of approximately 10 employees who mainly work with administrative support regarding security checks and security screening interviews, access and system authorizations, data protection (GDPR), and handling of security protection agreements. Together with your colleagues, you contribute to protecting the business by ensuring that only authorized persons have access to Vattenfall Vattenkraft's socially important facilities, systems and information.

More about the positions as group manager in security
