Why we will love you
Hej there! Are you someone who's excited about the shopping centre (or as we like to call them, ‘meeting places’) industry and wants to be a part of changing it for the better? At Ingka Centres, we're on that journey, and we're looking for someone like you to join us!
We are going to the heart of Paris, by joining us you will be part of a unique and memorable Meeting Place experience. If you are motivated by finding the problem, diagnose and fix it while focusing on detail, driving for results and live with IKEA culture & values - this could be an opportunity for you!
You are experienced in helping businesses or organizations plan, organize, and manage their costs and expenditures effectively. You have high sensitivity to cost control, which means you can help keep our expenses in check and know how important it is to stay within budget and always look for ways to save without sacrificing quality or efficiency.
Another thing you are great at is construction procurement. You have extensive knowledge of procurement procedures regarding construction activities within a project, including the local construction market. This means you can help us find the best contractors and suppliers for the project, while making sure we’re getting the best value.
Furthermore, you are experienced in the areas of claim for compensation, restitution, and repayment for any loss or damage, and have expertise navigating the legal processes to ensure that, when needed, we get the best possible outcome.
Lastly, you are skilled in planning and measuring financial records in compliance with internal and external regulations. You make sure everything is in order and that we are getting the best value possible. You are dedicated to helping achieve business objectives and long-term profitable growth, and always look for ways to improve the financial performance.

If the budget is likely to be exceeded, you'll work with the project team to suggest savings.
In addition, you'll manage the end-to-end procurement/tendering process within the project, coordinate the change orders/claims management process, and advise on vendors' claims and dispute resolution. You'll work closely with the design team to help establish project budgets, cross-checking with ICC projects, and establishing cost estimates.

As a long-term partner of IKEA, we share our vision, our culture and our values, while what makes our businesses different is the way we fulfil our vision.

We have big plans for the future that involve expanding to new locations, opening smaller-scale concepts closer to the city centres, digitalization, and most of all, living up to shared sustainability goals. We’re constantly looking for enthusiastic, purpose-led and creative people who’d like to join us on our journey to create meeting places around the world.
