Do you have the power to lead? Do you have the strategic flair and the financial understanding to drive the Development unit in Sweden?

You will head a dedicated team of 20 employees with a strong focus on high performance. You will experience an informal atmosphere characterized by teamwork and knowledge sharing. As part of Group Development and the Group Commercial Excellence leadership team, you and your team will be involved in cross-functional development projects at Group level, and from time to time lead a cross-border project yourself.

The quest for Group Development is to develop Danske Bank towards becoming No. 1 in customer experience. We aim at delivering The Essence of Danske Bank by acting as a catalyst for the change agenda. We do so by developing the existing business model and how we do business, and thus support all banking units implementing the new Nordic Integrator strategy.

Execute the strategy and drive the development agenda
As Head of Development Sweden, your daily work will be anchored in the management team in Banking Sweden. You will be driving the local strategic agenda through the business plan, and define opportunities and threats in the Swedish market to ensure we navigate accordingly. Furthermore, ensuring the central developed solutions match the local needs.

This includes ensuring an ongoing strategic review of both the product portfolio and competitors to identify opportunities to improve profitability and/or to adjust to local regulation. Furthermore, you will be supporting the overall Nordic Integrator strategy and drive the local implementation of it.

You will work in close collaboration with the management in banking Sweden and colleagues in Group Development. This includes supporting the ambitious growth plans for Sweden.

Strong leader with customer-focus
You have a proven professional track record, which shows broad management experience and strong performance results as well as working with stakeholders at all management levels. You hold a relevant Master's degree in business or finance with strong academic results.

You have solid experience with bringing business strategies to life and have substantial knowledge of the financial industry. As a person, you are a result-oriented, customer-focused, flexible and analytical manager, with a high level of energy. Moreover, you are motivated by driving change and thrive when you deliver results through your team of professionals.

You find it easy to communicate complex topics in a straightforward manner, thus you have strong language and presentation skills in English. Swedish language skills are an advantage, but not a requirement.
