Region Europe is a key region within Business Sweden and operates from more than 20 offices, from Almaty, Kazakstan in the east to Madrid in the west. From the London office we cover the UK and Ireland. We focus to grow the advisory part of our business, and to become even more relevant in ecosystems such as eMobility, eHealth, Smart Industries and Start-ups to help propel growth of Swedish companies internationally.
To help drive this journey, we are currently looking to grow the team with a few senior business consultants, taking on project manager roles. You have a consulting profile and experience from scoping and delivering professional services and advisory related to commercial excellence and revenue growth. Experience from the Energy or Food and Beverage sector is an advantage.
Europe is Sweden’s closest and most obvious business partner but also where Swedish companies have to be the most innovative to tap into new market segments and business models to find growing revenue streams in a mature market. We recognize that Swedish companies that invest strongly in local precense, strategic partnerships and innovation in the region have the highest growth and profitability.
Our relevancy to customers depends on our ability to bring market insights and a best-in-class strategic, consultative advisory. This recruitment is part of the expansion of our team with this focus. Your strategic mind-set and business expertise will be of great value, alongside with your passion for in-depth analysis and constant drive to go after new market opportunities.
What do we expect from you?

The projects include market entry and growth strategies, market and stakeholder analysis, business partner- and target acquisitions and similar.
You will contribute in driving senior sales dialogues, insight driven origination of new business opportunities, as well as prospecting and developing customer value propositions.
We already have a strong and dedicated team in place, and we set the bar high for applicants’ aptitude in analysing market drivers, interacting with senior corporate leaders, interpersonal and team management skills.
Who are we looking for?
- You have a higher academic degree, probably a Master of Science in Engineering and/or Business Administration
- You have a background in a renowned management consultant firm and have relevant working experience for at least 6-10 years
- You have operated in an international context with business and market focus
