Senior Associate for SwedenBIO

SwedenBIO, the industry organization for life science in Sweden, is looking for a senior employee to join its team. In this role, you will work closely with the CEO to translate members' needs into concrete initiatives that in various ways strengthen the conditions of the life science industry.

You will be involved in policy issues, shaping strategies, actions and implementation together with the CEO. For us, policy work is not just advocacy, but part of a holistic approach where we as an organization actively contribute to the change we want decision-makers to act on.

Our portfolio of practical measures to strengthen the industry ranges from major networking events to a wide range of courses, recommendations for IPO disclosure and attracting smart capital to Sweden. Our work on international visibility has intensified over the past year. These efforts reflect the needs we point out to politicians – the industry is in need of an exchange of experience nationally and internationally and of long-term stable funding.

With over 270 members from the entire life science ecosystem in Sweden, SwedenBIO is an organization that is growing rapidly and gaining visibility and importance. Our strength lies in having our ear to the ground and working – not just closely – but together withour members. In your role, you will have primary responsibility for leading the work of our member representatives in contributing operationally to a strong and vibrant life science industry. Your tools include SwedenBIO’s working groups, which are at the heart of our activities. Success in this role requires both a high level of reception capacity and steering power.

We are looking for someone to take overall responsibility, from strategic planning to the details of implementation. In our team, everyone helps us to achieve what we set out to do. That’s why unpretentiousness is an important quality to thrive and be successful.

Knowledge of the industry and project management experience is an advantage.
