Communications and Data Specialist

Location: Stockholm, Sweden.

By creating desirable solutions and great experiences that enrich people’s daily lives and the health of our planet, we want to be a driving force in delivering enjoyable and sustainable living. 

For us going to work every day has an even greater purpose than putting the latest product or technology on the market. It’s about improving the everyday lives of millions. By staying humble and open for new ideas, we can push the boundaries for cooking, cleaning and wellbeing at home. But to keep doing so, we need more people who want to innovate and re-imagine what life at home can be. 

For that, we employ great people from a wide variety of backgrounds – not just because it’s the right thing to do, but also because we believe that diverse perspectives make our business stronger and more innovative.

Objectives

Data can be a powerful tool in communications, both in the creation of the message and in measuring the impact of that message. Data can make communication more memorable through charts, graphs and infographics. The gathering and analysis of data can drive the business intelligence within Communications by helping the organization confidently craft impactful communication, thereby creating business value. 

This is why Electrolux Group Communications is looking for a data specialist who can work with information in two areas – first, boosting the power of creative storytelling with data, and second, driving strategy through the gathering and analysis of data and creating dashboards of relevant measurements. 

This job is for you if you are excited about the idea of sitting down to a spreadsheet full of data, and even more excited when the numbers turn into pictures and stories in your head. You know your work is best when you collaborate with other storytellers. Their strengths may be the written word, or pictures, while your strength is the visualization of data. Together with other highly skilled communicators, you will become part of a team that grows and evolves. Together, this team creates engaging messaging for almost 50,000 employees. It also supports communication for our top leaders around the world. 

At Electrolux, our purpose is clear – to shape living for the better by reinventing consumer experiences in taste, care and wellbeing. For employees, we focus on promoting respect for people, for the environment, and ethics behavior in all our actions. We encourage employees to take ownership of their wellbeing and learning journeys. We are passionate about sustainability, innovation and great consumer experiences. The Group Communications team finds new and innovative ways to strengthen this important narrative.

At our Global HQ we indeed work in a global and diverse environment. We currently have 76 nationalities who shape living for the better under the same roof which makes this company an amazing place to be. Come and join us!

Responsibilities

-Manage information gathered about communications on multiple channels, internal and external. Prepare analysis of the data for creation of KPIs and tracking performance.
-Lead planning for new collection of data as well as improving existing collection.
-Be the liaison between our storytelling tools – websites, intranets, etc. – and communications across the company regarding data collection and data use.
-Create data visualizations that can be used in ongoing communications, from simple articles to video to leadership presentations.
-Be a key part of weekly planning sessions and longer-term strategy-setting for corporate storytelling.
-Develop clear and compelling ways to support communication with data-driven visualizations.
-Create a style guide for Group Communications on how to visualize data, with guidelines and resources.
-Create in-house training programs for data-driven storytelling at basic and intermediate levels.
-Collaborate with data specialists in other divisions on data, big data, AI, etc., and how to make best use of them.
-Contribute to the creation of surveys, newsletters and other data-gathering events so that the measurements are accurate and useful.
-Create a new dashboard exclusively for top leaders to help gain insight and target their communications.

You are:

Curious. Your curiosity drives your discovery of data and need to explain it in storytelling.
Analytical. You understand that data can reveal truths – as well as hide them.   You understand that what can't be or wasn't measured must also be acknowledged for a valid analysis. To this end, you constantly question data as you seek and find new ways to measure categories. 
Creative communicator. We are looking for a creative, results-driven collector, analyst and communicator with experience in using data to set strategy and craft messages. 
Skeptical. Your skepticism will keep your data honest and your conclusions valuable and credible.

To be successful in this role, you should have:

- Relevant University education.
- Preferably around 3+ years of experience working on communication projects and using data to develop strategy. 
- Experience with multiple tools. These may include PowerBI, Qlik or Tableau. You are also quick to learn new tools. You can visualize within the Microsoft suite of tools, pulling in extra tools as needed.
- Experience with simpler tools, such as Canva or Google Charts. Also, you are skilled in Excel and data entry tools.
- Excellent written and spoken English.
- Experience in a multinational organization or where data was gathered and used across borders would be highly appreciated.
