In your role as Group Manager, you will lead your team independently in accordance with our exploration assignments and business orientation. You are also responsible for the team's work environment, budgeting, reporting and development of the team and its members. As a group manager, you will lead a group of geologists who are primarily working with geological exploration – primarily with iron ore objects.

Together with your collegues within the section, you contribute to creating an innovative and permissive atmosphere where we create great values through careful work and courage to tighten the bow and dare to fail sometimes.


We are looking for someone with good leadership qualities and who likes to build good realtions, both within the workplace and the section. You have an interest in working with continuous improvements in our work area and you are happy to share your knowledge. You show commitment by being innovative and are used to take personal responsibility both for your workplace but also for the section.

To be relevant for this role, you need to have an academic degree in geology, alternatively a master's degree in engineering or equivalent with another relevant specialization.

We have employees from several parts of the world and therefore it is a requirement that you both speak and write English fluently.

You should have an interest in leading others and preferably experience of working as a manager or in another leading role.
For all positions within LKAB, you need to have a driving license authorization B.
You will be based in Kiruna or Malmberget, close to the mining operation and city of Kiruna / Gällivare, situated in Swedish Lapland above the Arctic Circle. The area offers great opportunities for fantastic outdoor activities, such as hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, ice climbing, etc. See http://www.gellivarelapland.se/en/ and https://www.kirunalapland.se/en/
