Global HR Director - Sweden - Competitive SEK salary & local package


This is a newly created HR Director post within a global organisation, with the role to be based near Stockholm. 

This complex, multinational employer will be seeking someone with around 10-15 years of work experience and well-rounded HR expertise, ideally with direct exposure across multiple European countries.   Fluent English language skills will be necessary together with at least one additional European language to business fluency.

Supporting key business leaders, this person will drive HR strategy for a BU in growth mode. This person will also be responsible for interacting and mentoring in-country HR managers moving them from transactional country focussed mind-sets to become truly international business partners who know how to utilise and maximise newly formed CoE's for deep technical expertise.

The company growth has been quite extreme & the HR frameworks haven’t kept up with that pace, so many aspects need to be revamped across areas like reward, talent, succession planning & more.

The global leadership team is relatively new, so executive coaching and advising on organizational design and culture harmonization will also be high priorities for this person.

This role will pay circa EUR 105,000 (paid in SEK) + bonus & benefits package and full relocation support is available.  The division is part of a larger company headquartered in the USA so ongoing development & progression opportunities abound.

From a cultural “fit” perspective, a professional who has lived and worked across multiple countries could be a good hiring option.  Additionally a professional with some experience working within a US corporate might just connect with some of the leadership team more quickly, although this type of work history is not essential. 

30-40%  international travel will be required for this role, although the majority of the execs currently are based from Europe. 

Interested professionals who are EU citizens should apply directly and in confidence via
