We believe that this is you
To be successful in this role, you need to be excellent in data analytics and planning. You must be able to retrieve data, analyze it and present it in a simplified way for others to understand.

A very important part of the role is the ability to prioritize and keep deadlines.

We expect you to have work experience and a university degree, within logistics. You will need to have excellent English skills as this is the language used in the team and in our collaboration with colleagues. Good business knowledge and project management skills are a plus.

Our offer to you.
The automotive industry is going through a very exciting transformation and Volvo Penta is in the midst of that! Here you will be able to grow and develop alongside with us in this constantly evolving industry as a part of a profitable and growing business.
