HR at If is in the middle of an exciting journey where the overall aim is to support the business to attract, develop and retain great people. In HR terms this translates to creating smooth people processes that add value not only for their customers, but also If’s leaders and employees.

About the role

If is looking for a new Head of Nordic HR Systems and Operations (HRSO). The role will be responsible for ensuring the daily operations of the unit and leading a management team consisting of four leaders and an IT Development Lead. This is an exciting opportunity to work in the intersection between people, processes and systems/technology where you will have the opportunity to contribute to and influence the direction of If HR going forward.

Besides developing and helping the HRSO management team members to succeed, you will have two main areas of responsibility:

  • The HR System area: you will be business owner of the HR IT systems and together with the IT Development Lead work closely with IT in planning, developing and maintaining the HR IT portfolio and ensure compliance and security, plan/budget and follow up HR IT costs, lead/participate in various HR IT projects and anchor potential investments.

With a lot of freedom in the role, you will be able to influence how this role will be shaped going forward.

About the team

As Head of HRSO you will lead an organization with about 50 full and part time employees and teams in all the Nordic countries. This is the backbone of HR with responsibility for paying out salaries to nearly 8,000 employees each month, as well as supporting managers and employees in day to day HR matters. In addition, HRSO develops and maintains 20+ HR IT systems, where Workday and the four local payroll systems are the most important parts. You will be reporting to If’s Head of HR and be part of the HR management team.
