At Sandvik Coromant, we’re driven by a passion for excellence in everything we do. In our truly global business, we’re represented in more than 130 countries and we employ over 8 000 brilliant minds. Our belief is that sustainable success is a team effort and with profound knowledge of metal cutting and insight into the varying challenges of different industries, we strive to develop innovative solutions in collaboration with our customers. Solutions to meet both current and future demands, and that really make a difference.

We’re now looking for a highly motivated professional to join us as Global Change Leader – someone who is both ready and eager to lead one of the global transformation and improvement programs included in our Supply 2025 strategy. You will define the next generation of the program, involving both continued implementation of current initiatives and the exploration and realization of new, digital methodologies, systems and processes. This is an amazing opportunity to establish solid knowledge and a broad network within the future of manufacturing – giving you a strong advantage on the industrial arena!

About the job
As Global Change Leader, you’re responsible for executing the vision and strategy within both the Lean/ Production System and our Digital Transformation within all Supply globally. You’re a positive force of nature with a hands-on approach, and by being comfortable in a production environment, you have solid understanding for their daily work – and for how this can be improved by the tools you provide. This allows you to create a high level of trust and engagement when coaching colleagues during the implementation; building their capability to deliver further training to employees.

By taking an active part in the actual content setup of our Digital Transformation toolbox, you have a unique possibility to shape the future of our production and aiding our sites in finding tools that suit their business perfectly. As you’re a part of a global team consisting of program leaders, it’s important that you can adapt your skills and knowledge into different areas within supply.

This position is preferably located in Sandviken, while a flexible location is an option for the right candidate. Global travel is normally included in your job, although due to the pandemic situation, we’re currently even more digital than usual in our ways of working.

About you
It’s important that you have experience from working close to production to genuinely understand their challenges and possibilities, and you combine this with strong skills in change management and indirect leadership. In addition, it’s beneficial with experience from either purchasing or logistics. You also hold a M.Sc. in Engineering or Data Science, or the equivalent knowledge gained from a working career. Since we act in a global setting, you need fluent skills in both written and verbal English, while skills in Swedish are nice to have.

We place great value on your personal qualities. You easily motivate and energize yourself and, by living as you learn, you influence others to take action on implementing change. By meeting different people on their own level, and by being a skilled communicator and problem-solver, you create relationships based on trust and respect. You use a humble approach when supporting and coaching colleagues and bring your analytical and structured skills to work things all the way through in a timely manner.

For us, it’s clear that diversity of experience, perspective and background leads to a successful business environment, and we’re looking forward to meeting you!
