Analysing – and influencing – by finding the facts in the figures; assuring accounting standards and efficiency. Staying in step with constantly-changing tax codes, local and international laws and guidelines. Providing governance to keep every IKEA entity compliant, safe and operational.
Being there on the factory floor partnering with suppliers to work smarter, better and conserve resources. Getting millions of products from here to there – everywhere, every day! – so IKEA customers can have exactly what they want and enjoy at home right away.

Business & Consumer Insights & Analytics
You help IKEA people make better decisions. Getting big insights from big data. Analysing business and customers so people can make fact-based decisions. Knowing the trends before they’re trends. Developing a deep understanding of consumer behaviour and people’s lives at home. Then turning all that knowledge into a better everyday life for IKEA customers.
You like finding innovative ways to improve every part of the IKEA value chain. Making IKEA accessible to more of the many people. You enjoy getting involved with a variety of projects, initiatives, touchpoints and processes to create long-term value. Helping IKEA grow. Transforming the IKEA business for the better.

You set up services, gather feedback and make things right. You build relationships. By doing what you do, customers find they have a friend in IKEA. Want to make some friends?

You’re a key part of our team, enabling efficient product development and production through innovative engineering. You love a puzzle and look for ways to make things smarter, safer and more user-friendly. And you make sure our products live up to the highest standards of quality, design, function, price and sustainability.
You help us grow. Discover new horizons, push boundaries and explore uncharted territory. You love to analyse new and existing markets to make the most of the IKEA business.

Whether you’re cooking, sourcing products, developing an offer or serving customers, food is your passion. Especially when it’s honest, healthy and delicious.

You’re not afraid of the unknown. You’re an explorer. You know it’s not about you, but about working together. You take pride in seeing everyone around you grow and develop. You encourage people to experiment, test, try – and sometimes fail. As long as they learn along the way. And you're well aware that the back of an aeroplane arrives at exactly the same time as the front.
Legal & Governance
You help us stay on track and in line in a changing world. You love harmonising local and international law with the best interests of IKEA and its customers. Your diligence keeps our business on top of the legalities and guidelines governance requires. Your integrity is unquestioned, your capacity is vast and your dedication to detail is vital.
Logistics & Supply Chain
Getting this from here to there. Or ten thousand of these to all of those places. You thrive on the strategic and tactical challenge it takes to assure availability of IKEA products and range all around the world at the highest quality and lowest possible cost. Making sure customers can buy BILLY online in the morning and have it at home by the time they go to bed.
Marketing & Communication
You are the IKEA voice. In every place and in every channel where IKEA speaks. In words. In pictures. And maybe in virtual worlds and more. Your mission is to build the brand and inspire people to find value in all we have to offer. And to keep your fellow co-workers informed, engaged and connected in a constantly changing business environment.
Who would ever think of such a thing? Well…you would! You delve deep into emerging technologies and materials. You develop solutions and build the platforms that will define the IKEA range in the decades to come. Sustainable, attractive, compatible, healthy and safe. All to deliver products that really do make IKEA customers’ lives better.
People & HR
You support the IKEA business through people processes based on the IKEA values and a unique view on people. You believe different experiences and backgrounds collectively make us wiser and stronger. You work hard to bring the best people on board. And you create a sturdy foundation for them to bloom into their best selves as they build the business too. You believe in people.
How is all this going to get done, anyway? You tell us! You work across functions with different teams, stakeholders and partners on all sides – bringing out the best of everyone involved. And yet you still meet deadlines and come in on budget. Your planning skills are celebrated. You deliver high-quality results while keeping costs down. Should we talk about your next project?

You help secure, build and maintain our physical locations – from stores to offices to factories – to help us meet the needs of the many people. You get a sense of pride seeing everything working smoothly. Your colleagues need you!
Purchasing & Sourcing
You’re a born negotiator. You source the world for suppliers for everything from raw materials for products to ink for the printer. You work to maximise what suppliers can provide at the lowest possible prices while assuring safe and sustainable sourcing at all times. Most importantly: you build mutually beneficial partnerships for the long term. Want to make a deal?
Quality & Lean
Keep the quality. Cut the waste. Save time. Save money. Reduce resources. You increase operational excellence without sacrificing what IKEA customers want: a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at low prices. It’s a collaborative process of continuous improvement and an ongoing challenge to make the most of every single thing.
Real Estate & Leasing
You help us find, develop and manage IKEA properties in countries around the world. Renting. Leasing. Buying. Managing.

There you are! Right where the IKEA product range meets the customer. Wherever that may be – in IKEA stores, online, in our catalogue and beyond. Providing market and consumer insights for range development. Creating and implementing sales tools and solutions that make real connections with customers. More than just a retailer. An entrepreneur.
You want to create a positive impact on people, society and the planet. How can IKEA products become circular by using material and resources in the best way? How can you improve lives for the people who create our products? And how can IKEA benefit the communities where it operates? These questions keep you up at night. And they bring you to work every day.
