THE OATLY WAY
Oatly is a sustainability company built on the idea of change. Bottom line, we want to make it easy for people to eat and drink what’s good for them without recklessly taxing the planet’s resources. It's why we come to work every day. With our head office in Malmö and production sites in Sweden, the Netherlands and the US, our products are available in almost 30 countries across Europe, North America and Asia.
We welcome people from all backgrounds who see sustainability, health and transparency as important values. If you have the curiosity, passion and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let’s do this together! It will be fun! Promise!
Here’s what it’s all about.
A knack for strategic communications, love of leadership, solid planning and steady execution are what’s key here. In the VP EMEA PR & Communications role, you have the chance to build an integrated department and team. There are a lot of parts to fit together in this puzzle - external communications / PR, public affairs, and internal communications. Creating a good flow between these divisions and guiding Oatly’s strategic communications for the general public and other key audiences is what you will take on responsibility for.
This is a senior role. You will report directly to the President of EMEA, Johan Girdo, and collaborate with a dotted line to Åsa Ragnar, the Global Chief Communications Officer. You will sit as part of the leadership team of Oatly’s EMEA business, as well as on the Global Comms leadership team. You will work closely with others to communicate Oatly’s unique narrative of sustainability, science, nutrition and global hyper growth in the competitive plant-based food business, while also creating enthusiasm in diverse audiences.
Oatly believes in working cross-functionally, so you will work collaboratively with a lot of different departments and regions outside of Comms! You will structure our flow of communications, tapping into the business needs of Oatly, but also help build a strong EMEA culture internally by sharing stories.
Are you the Oat we’re looking for?
We are looking for an experienced and inspiring leader that welcomes ambiguity as an opportunity to move forward and is comfortable with change. There’s a lot of it here!

Collaboration is in your nature, and you have an outstanding track record in building strong, durable networks. You’ve orchestrated creative, proactive, and measurably successful communications plans.
Other key competencies & experiences:
Minimum of 10 years experience in corporate communications or public relations. You have had responsibility for the strategy and management of external and internal communications at an enterprise level.

Experience working with decentralized, global organizations, and a proven ability to balance the needs of multiple stakeholders.
