We are looking for a junior project coordinator / executive assistant

SwedenBIO, the industry organization for life science, is strengthening its operations and is looking for a junior project coordinator / executive assistant who thrives in a dynamic environment. The position is full-time and located at our office on Wallingatan in central Stockholm. Applications are processed on a rolling basis.


As an executive assistant, you will be an important node both for the secretariat and for our member companies. The life sciences industry is growing and so are we. Our membership is growing steadily and you will be joining us at an exciting time when we are reviewing and developing our activities. You will handle a wide range of challenging and stimulating tasks of a varied nature.

Key elements are:

– Act as coordinator and administrator for different types of projects.
– Management of our events including being involved in the coordination and practical aspects. SwedenBIO regularly organizes major networking events such as Nordic Life Science Days and policy events such as SwedenBIO Opinion.
– Member management, both communication and administration
– Responsible for our website, as well as being a resource for social media marketing.
– Taking minutes at members’ meetings, handling mail and general office duties.

There is an opportunity to grow the role towards more project management elements. You are encouraged to help develop and streamline the administrative work of the association’s secretariat.

About you

We are looking for people who are structured, accurate, result-oriented and used to taking responsibility. You should also be service-minded in your supporting role towards SwedenBIO’s secretariat and the association’s members. You can handle the office package at a qualified level, and if you can easily familiarize yourself with technical tools such as the Internet, you will be able to use them. CRM systems and web tools are a big advantage. The role involves extensive contacts with individuals, companies and organizations both within and outside the country. It is therefore important that you have a high level of written and spoken Swedish and English.

We attach great importance to personal qualities and you do not need to have worked as a project coordinator or executive assistant before. We would like you to have a basic university education and an interest in social development, science, medicine or technology would be an advantage. If you enjoy the fact that no two days are the same and that the tasks vary in difficulty, you will enjoy working with us. We are a small, unpretentious team where everyone helps each other in the highs and lows. There are great opportunities to make contacts and develop by taking on more and more responsibility!
