B&R has grown fast for a long time and is continuing its growth. Currently there are several recruitment's ongoing, and therefor B&R asked me, Sandra (an HR Consultant), to help out during the spring. I’ll try to give you a good picture of the role as Team leader for their Technical Customer Support.

Colleagues & Team

In the application team in Malmö, of which the support team is a part, there are 8 engaged colleagues who always are there when you need advice or feel you need to share ideas.

You’ll report to Christian who has been working at B&R in various roles and knows the Company and market very well. Christian is a highly appreciated manager because of his prestige less and caring personality. He is always there for his team members. Christian has a big team with various roles, which also means that he has many tasks to handle simultaneously. Are you the kind of person who easily offers to help out, and easily grasps what needs to be done, it would be great. Christian is located in Stockholm office, but is often in Gothenburg and Malmö too.
