Do you want to help make Sweden a more attractive business partner?
We are looking to hire experienced strategy consultants to be part of growing our footprint and presence in Asia Pacific. Our organisation in APAC is today consisting of twelve markets with a mission to assist Swedish companies to develop and grow their business in the region.

Business Sweden is a global organization with approximately 500 staff working at offices in 46 countries. We all share the same passion – creating maximum value for Sweden by helping Swedish businesses to grow internationally and identifying openings for foreign companies keen to invest in Sweden.
Working for Business Sweden is a varied job in which you will encounter many types of client and service. Work ranges from complex strategic deals to smaller operational projects. Clients vary from multinationals to small family-owned businesses and you will enjoy substantial scope to shape your own role and tailor solutions to the client’s specific needs.

An important part of your job will be initiation of sales to existing or potential Swedish subsidiaries in the region where tasks include identifying new business opportunities, as well as prospecting, contacting new potential clients, setting up and participating in sales meetings, and participating in developing a suggested solution and closing the deal.
