HR Business Partner

Scroll to content

We are looking for an experienced HR Business Partner who wants to be part of our journey in taking our talent management to the next level. You have a broad experience within the HR area and understand that a fast-growing company where there is constant change cannot be operated with a standard formula. Your passion should be developing people, but we believe you’ll be at your happiest here if you also appreciate and enjoy games and our culture - we take pride in being nerds. If this sounds like pure awesomeness to you, you are probably the one we are looking for!

We are around 650 employees globally. In this position, you will work in close cooperation with a dedicated part of the organization consisting of both managers in Sweden but also managers located at our studios in Europe. As an HR Business Partner you will be a strategic partner but also handle operational tasks within the whole HR area. 

You will be part of a close-knit team in Sweden of currently nine dedicated HR professionals; HR Business Partners, Talent Acquisition Partners and a HR admin. You will be part of driving and executing on our people plan and delivering results together with your colleagues in the HR team. 

Your primary tasks and responsibilities

  • You will establish a trusted partnership with the managers and support them to develop and retain our talents
  • Coach managers to build leadership capabilities
  • Partner with and support the talent acquisition team to hire some of the best talents out there
  • Be on top of HR data and workforce statistics to guide the managers in improving performance, retention and engagement
  • Execute on the people plan and drive local and global development projects

Required qualifications

  • At least 5 years experience as an HR Specialist or HR Business Partner, with knowledge of all HR functions and best practices, preferably from companies with a global presence 
  • Working knowledge and prior experience of Swedish labor law, including union relations
  • BS degree in Human Resources or a related field
  • Fluency in Swedish and English, both written and spoken

As a person, we think you are the type who enjoys seeing the people around you improve and who gains satisfaction from helping your stakeholders grow. You understand that different managers need different support, and that communication is the secret sauce that takes you there. Since we are a fast-growing company, we are looking for someone who enjoys the high pace and the organizational challenges that comes with it. You understand the importance of building trust with stakeholders, and you know how to be accessible and approachable. Your stakeholders might describe you as attentive and humble. Moreover, you enjoy having structure and processes around you. You are not afraid of leading a project or to be hands-on involved in one.
