If you have questions regarding the role, recruitment process or other practicalities please get in touch with Recruitment Specialist, Pietro Mattei at

Please note

Our primary concern since the outbreak of corona virus has been the health and safety of our co-workers and candidates. Because of this, we have adapted our recruiting processes to be fully digital.

We would love to meet our candidates face to face, but to prevent the spread of the virus this recruitment will be handled through digital appointments and solutions.

For us at IKEA work/life balance is important and in Sweden it's common to take 3-4 weeks of annual leave during the period Mid-June to Mid-August to spend time with family and loved ones. Due to this, we kindly ask you to expect that this recruitment process may take a bit longer than it normally would do. We are very much looking forward hearing from you!
