Enriching modern living with sustainable solutions

Our purpose is simple and compelling: To release the natural power of stone to enrich modern living.

ROCKWOOL products save energy and water and reduce CO2 emissions, protect buildings from the spread of fire; reduce waste; improve acoustic comfort, building performance and aesthetics; and enhance Precision Growing, thereby improving the efficiency of fresh food production.

While the stone we use may be millions of years old, what we do with it is cutting-edge. Every day, ROCKWOOL colleagues are developing and applying new technologies to release yet more potential of stone wool to enrich modern life.

Would you also be proud to enrich society like we do? Apply now to join us as we improve modern living conditions for millions of people worldwide.

Do you want to be part of something bigger? Something where you can influence on improving the lives of people around the world? A place that tackle many of today’s biggest challenges such as energy consumption and noise pollution, fire resilience, water scarcity and flooding? Then ROCKWOOL is the right place for you.

What does it take?
A balanced mix of strategic and conceptual thinking, curiosity and ability to find relevant sources of information; and turning it into business opportunities and valuable proof points.  You enjoy working with data, and are comfortable to draw own conclusions and recommendations based on complex and diverse input. You are a true networker and facilitator with a strong presence and drive.  Building on a solid academic foundation, your experience would ideally be a combination of management consulting and global manufacturing / industry exposure where you have driven strategy, improvement initiatives and change effectively. You are an influential collaborator with a proven track record of working successfully with stakeholders at all levels in an international setting.

This is the role
Our purpose, to release the natural power of stone to enrich modern living, sets the framework and serves as a source of inspiration for you to make real impact on our business. We have set ourselves some ambitious business- and sustainability goals, which we work hard to reach every day.

As Strategy and Business Development Director you lead the development, updating and execution of our strategy and strategic initiatives – a critical vehicle to reach our ambitious goals. You manage the Groups’ strategy execution through goalsetting, prioritisation, and programme management.  You also execute strategic projects yourself – typically those which have so far been unfamiliar to the Group.

You report directly to our CEO and support the CEO in preparation of quarterly Board Meetings and other decision fora as required.

This is what we offer
As a family-founded and values-oriented company, we have established a people-driven and inclusive culture that provides employees with a friendly and respectful atmosphere for growth and development. We are a team of over 11,000 skilled employees across 39 countries, bound together by one common element: releasing the natural power of stone. Our success has always been built on strong teams, with passion for what we do and a commitment to ROCKWOOL’s purpose. Our track record of empowering our workforce and fostering ambitious thinking has created a sense of community throughout the organization.

Please submit your application and resume in English in the same field via the below link before 26 February.
