You will go in depth into business development, strategy and market intelligence processes and will have the chance to leave a long-term footprint in the organisation. You will interface with key stakeholders in the ROCKWOOL Nordics organisation as well as at a ROCKWOOL Group level.  

You will operate flexibly in a successful global organisation, becoming an important part in implementing and contributing to significant improvements on company level. You will be part of an international family-owned business based on solid values and work with colleagues that have a true passion for what they do, joining a historic brand with strong presence, growth objectives, and focus on sustainability.

We look forward to hearing from you
