About us
Inter IKEA Systems (Core Business Franchise) owns the IKEA Concept and is the worldwide IKEA franchisor. We are specifically responsible for the IKEA strategic framework, ensuring the IKEA Concept is updated, relevant, implemented and followed-up – together with all IKEA trademark users.

How do we do this? By enabling people across the IKEA value chain, and creating unique content to develop the IKEA business. Here are some examples of our different assignments. 

  • We develop solutions that will ensure a unique and successful meeting with IKEA customers.
  • We lead the work around when and how IKEA expands in the world, enabling one common way of working with high impact at a low cost.
  • We create the preconditions to strengthen the IKEA Culture and develop the right competence to meet customer and business needs.

An important part of our success is our unique culture and open working environment. Together, we create a workplace where everyone feels free to be themselves – to experiment, try new ways, and dare to ask, “What if…?” We believe in everyday personal growth and offer the opportunity to develop your career globally.

Portfolio support is responsible for the right level of governance, reporting, alignment, prioritization, etc. across all departments.

About you
You have substantial experience in different portfolio organizations and can recognize quickly how an organization is setup, and what are the stronger and weaker points. Proactively, you can liaise with different stakeholders to make the necessary steps for improvement, whilst operationally getting things in place.

A few more details for you
This is a full time position (40 hours per week) located in Delft, Netherlands. It is a temporary position for about 6 months. At this time, almost all the work will be performed from home, working remotely, due to the Covid-19 situation.
