Here’s the deal:
You will get the chance to work and live in four of our different locations (Älmhult, Dortmund, Kaunas and Moscow). After you have received your onboarding in one of the four countries, you will spend 3-6 months in each location, taking on specific financial assignments and working with the local teams in each country as well as taking part in regional/global projects.

We believe that you are as curious as we are and eager to explore new places and to meet new people. You are a newly graduate or at the beginning of your career within finance or business administration and have a genuine interest in both numbers and people. You are comfortable doing in-depth analysis as well as presenting for larger crowds of people. At IKEA we believe that magic happens when we work together. That’s why we are looking for a true team player that is passionate about the IKEA culture and the IKEA brand.
