We care a lot about our People & Culture and that is why we call our HR Manager People & Culture Manager. We are looking for People & Culture Managers for two of our Stores in Gothenburg, Kållered and Bäckebol. IKEA Kållered is moving into a completely new store and with the move comes many exciting opportunities.

We are looking for a committed and inspiring People & Culture Manager who is passionate about people and business. You have a strong personal leadership in line with the IKEA values and you are highly successful in bringing out the best in others. You find energy and motivation in releasing others’ potential, allowing them to grow. Thanks to your excellent communication skills you have the ability to create strong and trustful relationships, tying a link to the co-workers in the store.

You support and develop the people strategy based on the store’s local need. At the same time you are brave and willing to explore new paths, always daring to do something different when needed. You have a good understanding of business and how to drive the people agenda through others.

You have several years of previous experience from both leadership and HR, preferably from a larger organisation or similar business. In addition to your experience your personality and leadership capability will be of outmost importance.


The People & Culture Manager is an important part of the store management team, responsible for ensuring that the business and the people strategy are driven together, both in line with global guidelines and local needs. A major part of your role is to challenge and develop our HR processes in close cooperation with your team. This includes ensuring that the HR strategies are locally translated into action in the most effective and efficient way, hence actively contributing to the growth of the business through people. Together with the Business Navigation Manager you are responsible for the distribution of budget hours between the unit departments, according to the need of the business and the co-worker, enabling an effective and efficient people planning process.

You work in a fast-paced and continuously changing customer-focused environment, with a focus on and passion for co-workers, customers and sales. You have a small team reporting to you.
