About the job
Workshop manager-Logistic Engineering BATTERY PRODUCTION – Workshop manager-Logistic Engineering

Scania is now undergoing a transformation from being a supplier of trucks, buses and engines to a supplier of complete and sustainable transport solutions.

Dedicated to a sustainable future!

The electrification trend in the automotive industry is moving fast. For Manufacturing and Logistics, this means that we need to prepare to increase the production of electric vehicles and help Scania become more sustainable. An important component of an electric vehicle is the battery.

The first battery production in Sweden has just been inaugurated and we are currently starting serial production of the first battery packs in our highly automated production. We are also the first Scania production unit to implement SAP.

Diversity and inclusion are a high-priority area in Battery Production. In the Logistics management team, we currently have several different nationalities, we are as many men as women and work with different perspectives and mindsets. We strive for a climate where you can come as you are and support each other through good and bad.


The Logistics management team consists of a number of functions; Production Planning, Business IT, Material Planning, Material Handling and work shop manager logistic engineering.

Within Logistics Technology, there are three departments that work to provide the business with methods, departments with different focus areas such as Logistics Development, Back Office and Front Office. We are now looking for a Work shop manager logistic engineering.

Work shop manager Logistics engineering

Today, production and logistics are spread over three buildings and several different productions.
We manufacture battery packs and modules in two different buildings as well as cabling in the third. This is in both serial and prototype production. Production consists of four workshop areas with about eight group managers. Within material handling, there are two business areas with about seven group managers. All of these need support for their respective businesses.

The Front Office consists of logistics technicians who handle the day-to-day issues that the business needs to deal with to deliver materials with 0 accidents and 0 errors.

The Back Office enables the business to be ready for new items, new paces, new requirements, and planned improvements. Back Office thus focuses more on what lies further in the future and creates working methods, layouts, and training so that the business and Front Office can have good conditions to operate daily.
Logistics Development is responsible for preparing for upcoming changes in buildings, layouts, processes, equipment, layouts, and methods based on changes in products, volumes, and requirements.

Many processes in production and material handling are automatic, and the flows are strongly interconnected. Few things happen or move without signals in and between our IT systems.

Your team has expertise in flow dimensioning, layouts, automation, digitization, and good knowledge of system signals. You are available and supportive of production at short notice and, with the help of the operational functions, can set off problems systematically with both short- and long-term solutions.

Your profile

Responsibility is important to us, coordination and collaboration with other colleagues in logistics but also in other functions. It is also important to be able to steer towards goals and deliveries through and with your group. We want to be able to learn from what can be improved and create methods and ways of working that support us going forward.

You should have a bachelor's or master's degree and be an experienced manager.

You are fluent in Swedish and English, both written and spoken.
