Job description

Vattenfall Services' corporate culture is characterized by safety and an entrepreneurial spirit where creativity, independence and results orientation are key concepts. We work customer-oriented in a goal- and project-oriented organization.

Do you want to be part of Sweden's leading contracting company in the energy and power sector? Vattenfall Services continues to grow in the engineering area and now we are planning for continued expansion with a new manager for our newly started department Norra Nord.

Department Norra Nord is an engineering department that works in the construction and control plant of switchgear and hydropower plants. The department's employees are stationed in Umeå, Luleå, Norsjö and Arjeplog. The department is currently one with Södra Nord, but as we are in an expansive phase, they are now divided with the plan to grow further.

As manager, you are responsible for approximately 13 employees where the department's main work is North of the Umeälven. We work in close collaboration with other operations within Vattenfall Services, therefore other tasks can also be part of everyday life. We work in a fast and changing part of the business and there we collaborate with several different parties such as hydropower producers, grid companies, grid company end customers and industries.

As a department manager, you work with the development of the department's employees and operations in a business environment where safety has the highest priority.

Examples of responsibilities and tasks:

  • Personnel and resource planning, keeping you and the department up-to-date on services and safe working methods, as well as working for further development and follow-up of methods and our delivery.
  • Development of existing employees but also actively working to increase the number of employees in the department.
  • Finance: forecast, budget and business follow-up as well as analysis of the business.

The department is part of Vattenfall Services' national Business Area Stations Technology. You will report to the business area manager and be part of his management team, together with managers in other regions with similar challenges. In this management group, there are good opportunities to contribute to the continued growth and development of the entire business area.

We offer you a very exciting and challenging opportunity, to drive Vattenfall Service's energy transition towards a fossil-free future with your skills and experience.

Requirements specification

You are a leader who contributes with commitment, openness and a strong focus on work environment and safety. You have several years' experience of working as a leader with personnel responsibility and have great drive around issues related to employee development and commitment.

We attach great importance to your personal qualities where you are a committed leader who has the ability to unite and motivate your employees. As a leader, you are responsive, clear and present. You look out for the best interests of the group while also having a business drive. You are an initiative-taking and communicative person who has a strong drive to support the development of the business, the people within it and our business.

Furthermore, we see that you have a good IT habit, B driver's license and the opportunity to travel in the position as the employees are located in several locations. You speak and write both Swedish and English without hindrance.
