Business Controller for H&M


Are you a top talent with strong leadership qualities and a passion for doing business? Are you looking for an exciting career within a value-driven, global retail company? Then you could be one of H&M's future Business Controllers!

As one of the world’s largest fashion retailers, H&M offers endless career possibilities. A fast-paced, buzzing environment with great diversity that’s anything but dull – a place where the customer is always the center of attention!

Profile & Role

Being a Business Controller at H&M means focusing just as much on business and profitability as on motivating your team to do the same. Our ideal candidate has a true gift of turning analysis into action, whether you work at Buying Office, Online Sales or New Business. You’ll be given plenty of responsibility from day one, and with excellent leadership skills the career possibilities are endless.

We will not be telling you exactly what to do, but some of your main responsibilities will be:

  • Setting long term strategies and short term goals together with your team. What sales goals do we want to reach and how? How can we improve our profitability?
  • Following-up on our goals and KPIs. Are we reaching our sales goals? What’s our current stock situation? How are our different sales markets performing and why? What will be the price perception for our business area next season? What volumes should we plan with for our key products? How will current in prices affect our profitability?
  • Continuously analyzing anything and everything related to your business area to take smart, business-minded actions together with your team. If you have 100’000 blue t-shirts worth one million euros, that you don’t believe you can sell – what should you do?
  • Using your time in a smart and efficient way to create strong results while allowing for a sound work-life balance. And have fun together with your team!

Apart from being a world-leading fashion company, H&M is probably one of the best global retailers when it comes to sustainability - whether you’re talking about garment recycling, using organic cotton or being a sustainable employer. H&M will offer you internal training, great possibilities to work with your development and to grow as a leader.

Our employees are the key to our success and we are constantly looking for Business Controllers for our growing organization including our Global Buying Office, Online sales and our other Brands in H&M Group. You will be working at one of our offices in the center of Stockholm, Sweden, but there are also numerous future career opportunities abroad, within our fast- expanding global organization.

Is this your next challenge? We are looking for:

  • Graduates or young professionals with a degree in business or engineering. Strong analytical skills and the ability to turn your analysis into actions that you can implement in your team.
  • Driven and result oriented personalities, with a genuine interest in retail. Experience in sales, store or e-commerce is meritorious.
  • An entrepreneurial mindset, taking own initiatives, as we are a flat organization with a straightforward, open-minded culture and short decision paths.
  • Team players with leadership skills wanting to grow as leaders within H&M Group.
  • International experience from either work or studies. Your English is fluent - Swedish is not mandatory.
