Norrsken’s vision is a world optimised for people and planet. We're using entrepreneurship, technology and investments to achieve this. In our first two years, we have created Europe’s largest impact tech hub, Norrsken House (currently housing 120 companies), started two of our own companies (combating corruption and mental illness), raised a unique investment fund that measures success in impact, and made 16 investments. And now we are expanding to more places around the world.

In short, we’re on a mission to put a positive ding in the universe. How that is articulated and communicated will be crucial to our success. We’re very proud of where we are so far, but we’re just getting started. We want to do bold stuff. We believe the way to break through the noise, and to be relevant, is to be less UN and more Sex Pistols. Less corporate reports and more authenticity. Less Geneva and more Bangalore. But at the core, it’s less about Norrsken and more about the entrepreneurs we’re supporting. They are the heroes, and the ones who really deserve the spotlight.   

As you understand, we believe this role is crucial to the long-term success of what we’re doing. You will drive this work on a strategic level, but like everyone else in this startup you’re expected to roll up your sleeves and make things happen.

So who is right for this role? Well, it’s not unlikely that you’ve lead a team at a communications or marketing agency, ran the press office for a minister, or built the brand for a fast scaling tech company. But what do we know? You might have done something completely different as well. Attitude, passion and skills are more important than the exact right experience.

The role:

  • Responsibility for our global positioning and all communication and marketing activities
  • Reports to CEO. Member of Norrsken’s management team and part of the strategic development of the foundation
  • Own and build the global brand of Norrsken, launch it in new markets, digital activities, lead the marketing team, PR, website, build and lead partnerships to execute on ideas
  • Manage all agency relations, since we’re outsourcing a lot of work to the best agencies (PR, marketing, digital) across the world.
  • Be a thought leader of communication and marketing and a support to portfolio companies and Norrsken House members in matters of communication and marketing
  • Recruit and manage marketing and comms team
  • Based in Stockholm, but involves travelling (especially to London and Africa in 2019)
  • Corporate language is English, Swedish skills is not a requirement  

What we’re looking for:

  • Someone who is entrepreneurial and make things happen
  • A strong communicative judgement that can balance opportunities, risks, partnerships and need to stand out in the noise in considerate and thoughtful marketing decisions - for all relevant channels that Norrsken is using (website, digital, PR, events)
  • A combination of a hustler and strategic genius, i.e. can both build networks and relationships across the world and make PR happen, in addition to create strategies and tactical plans that are easy to understand and execute
  • Someone who builds trustful relationships with partners (for example has driven sales for a consultancy)
  • Experience of leading several parallel complex projects

Salary and comp is same as for the rest of mgmt team: 68,500 SEK / month. 7 weeks of vacation. Solid pension program.
