  • Are you, like us, energised by working with researchers at the cutting edge and utilising the practically infinite possibilities of future technologies?

About the position
As business office manager you will have overall responsibility for project portfolios, strategic planning and implementation of internal development activities within the Division. Together with the division's management group you will structure and guide the project portfolio with respect to delivery, timetable, budget, risk and process adherence.

You will plan and carry out reviews of critical projects, and may also have the project-owner role for major strategic cross-divisional projects or programmes. You will be responsible for the division's strategic planning, and will drive implementation of the division's business plan. You will also actively contribute to the division's reception and implementation of group-wide changes. Your team may include coordinators for major programmes and projects, and as business office manager you will report to the senior vice-president, and be a part of the divisional management. 

Who are you?
We are seeking someone who is passionately interested in technology and business development. You are a structured and communicative person who has an excellent feel for an overall perspective within a complex organisation, in terms both of technical depth and breadth and of constant change and development. We would like you to have a tertiary level of education at Master’s level, ideally with an MBA, and certification as project manager would be an advantage (PMP/IPMA or equivalent). You have an easy command of spoken and written Swedish and English.

Are we right for each other?
Within RISE we like variety, and we are convinced that diversity contributes to an innovative environment where together we can challenge boundaries and develop new knowledge and skills for the future. We cannot promise you an easy job, but what we can promise is an exciting journey in which, together with dedicated and talented colleagues, we contribute to a sustainable future and to securing a head start in global competition.
