Driven by the challenges our customers face, we continuously strive to set new industry standards, resulting in higher productivity and enabling more efficient and safer industrial activities. Sandvik Machining Solutions is our largest and most profitable business area, with more than 18,000 employees worldwide. We are the leading supplier in the global cutting tool industry and our brand portfolio holds some of the strongest brands on the market.

The Communication department at Sandvik Machining Solutions (SMS) handles strategic internal and business area corporate communication. We are now looking for a diverse and edgy writer to join our team of Communication Professionals in a temporary one-year assignment. This is a chance to act in a varied role with both planned activities, strategic projects and more immediate matters, giving you a great opportunity to develop and grow within a global organization.

This position is preferably located in Sandviken.

Your challenge

As a Communication Professional, you work in a communications team with specialists within the areas of communication planning, graphic design and intranet. You contribute to the team with your skills as a writer, and you plan, lead and create content for different channels and audiences according to plan and business needs - always with our strategic direction in mind. You collaborate with other communication teams within the organization, and you are a member of Sandvik Group content board.

Being part of a global organization, you handle both strategic communications planning from a long-term perspective and more urgent assignments in periods of change. You support different functions in key assignments and you conduct filmed interviews, facilitate webinars and participate in related activities when needed.

Your profile

We are looking for a confident writer with a communicative awareness and experience from work and/or studies within communications, journalism, copywriting or content creation. You have proven experience of turning complex information into easily digested and compelling writing, with excellent skills in both English and Swedish. Knowledge of digital media channels is also an advantage in this position.

We recognize and value your passion and personality; characterized by your flexible yet structured ways of working and your ability to build and maintain networks with stakeholders at all levels. With a genuine interest in communication and how to connect with the audience, you use a proactive approach and stay up-to-date on digital ways of communicating internally. You are curious and humble, and though your passion lies in writing, you are also a strong verbal communicator with the ability to challenge and encourage others. You pay attention to details and perform your work with integrity and strong business acumen, knowing when to raise a question and to go the extra mile.

At Sandvik, we are proud to promote a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspective and background will lead to a better environment for our employees, our business and, thereby, our customers.
