HR Business Partner for our Common Functions

HR Business Partner for our Common Functions


One of the key success factors for Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions is our 14 000 brilliant people – the ones who brought us to the market leading position we hold today, and the ambassadors of our brand and culture. Do you want to be part of our future journey by inspiring development, supporting growth, lifting our performances and celebrating our people?

We’re now looking for an HR Director to join us in a global and dynamic position, where you get to use your skills to set our direction, as well as to guide our managers towards success in their daily tasks. Ahead of you is an interesting, inspiring and challenging assignment that requires commitment, curiosity and a holistic outlook – a truly great opportunity for someone who is passionate about HR and enjoys working in an ever-changing business environment.

About the job
Your responsibility in this role is to support our 40 managers and their employees spread across 25 different countries, and you offer guidance and expertise to our top business management in common functions such as Legal, Finance, Strategy and M&A. This requires a global outlook, as you take lead in both strategic initiatives and operational activities, and you know how to support and coordinate with our local HR leaders to navigate in this truly global environment. You’re located at our headquarters at World Trade Center in Stockholm, where you’re the go-to person for on-site HR related questions, and you take lead in recruitment support and onboarding of our new employees to ensure a great employee experience.

Collaboration is your key to success, and you constantly interact with your business stakeholders, the HR Business Partner for our IT function as well as the wider HR community to drive synergies, improvements and best practices. By working proactively, you ensure that we have the competence and resources we need to meet our strategy and achieve business goals. You also maintain and drive the people policies and processes included in our annual HR lifecycle - such as performance management, talent and succession, diversity and inclusion, leadership development and compensation and benefits. Keeping a flexible mindset when it comes to balancing the adherence to our processes and giving solutions-oriented support to our managers is on top of your agenda. Another important part of your job is to contribute to an agile, value-driven and high performing organization. Simply put, a great place to work!

You report to the Vice President and Head of HR & EHS and you’re a full member of the HR Council together with the 24 HR Directors from our divisions and sales areas in Europe, Americas, Asia and Africa.

About you
For this job, we’re looking for a culture ambassador with a can-do attitude and a broad HR background, as well as experience from working as an HR manager or HR partner towards senior management teams. Supporting the managers at our headquarters requires a detailed, reliable and high-quality approach, as well as the passion and ability to ensure a great employee experience. When it comes to education, we expect a relevant academic degree within HR or Business Administration.

With our roots and many of our team members in Sweden, you need to master local labor laws and regulations, and the relations with our unions. On the other hand, we’re a truly global business – acting across both country borders and cultures – so you also need experience from similar international and complex environments. Naturally, you communicate and present information fluently in both English and Swedish.

As a person, you’re curious, open minded and unbiased, and you show high integrity in all your work. With a cosmopolitan mindset, you actively work to create a setting where diversity and inclusion is both considered and valued. You have a very professional and business-minded approach which comes in handy when meeting the needs of your top management stakeholders, and you build trusting relations by clear communication, proactive time management and you must be able to give hands on support.

A glimpse of our culture
At Sandvik, we’re tech driven, innovative and entrepreneurial! For us, success is a team effort - we value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive culture where people can be themselves and reach their full potential. So, we invest in supporting each other, learning together and celebrating our differences. We also give you the freedom to find that perfect mix between work, family life and interests.
