We have openings in a variety of fields, with the majority tech-related.  We will respond to your application within 48 hours, to let you know if we can proceed with your application or not. Candidates will go through all the necessary steps of our standard recruitment process, only faster.  
We are a collaborative, diverse and inclusive Volvo Cars community. A dynamic global organisation, committed to driving change. We believe in creativity, ideas freely expressed, and we all contribute to the exploration of our shared future. If you share our values, there could be room for you in the Volvo Cars family.

We can provide some support with relocation and getting settled in Sweden.
