What is Production?

It's the place where design ideas are transformed into actual products. We are in over 20 sourcing markets and are the direct point of contact for local suppliers. We work to ensure our products are of good quality and produced at the best price and in a sustainable way.

As the Regional Sustainability Manager, you are accountable for ensuring that sustainability goals are met for your region, guaranteeing both social and environmental standards. You are responsible for setting a vison for your region that is aligned with the global sustainability and business visions.

You are responsible for setting goals and activities that will fulfill our overall business goals through collaboration with other functions in the company. You are also responsible for ensuring that the company works with only sustainable and approved vendors and suppliers in your region.

You own sustainability initiatives, projects and programs across your region and secure that efforts are aligned with global and business goals.

You regularly connect with NGOs, certification bodies, government organizations and other companies in our industry to keep up to date with developments that impact routines and policies we already have in place. You identify upcoming challenges based on market trends and initiating projects/programs for future strategic plans. You manage a budget to drive meaningful investments which drive innovation, change and improvements in your function's capabilities, processes, tools and systems.

Who are you?

You deliver on the areas you have ownership for by living our values every day and primarily through collaboration and teamwork. You partner closely with the global sustainability team for Production to understand the global direction for the function and how to implement developments in your region.

You also work closely with the supply chains to secure they take into account sustainability topics in setting business strategies. You are solutions-oriented, constantly looking for ways for our suppliers and our internal teams to innovate and improve in the ways that we work. As the function head for Sustainability in your region, you act as a true H&M leader by being a role model of H&M's leadership expectations and by focusing on developing your people.

Can you join the H&M Family?

Of course, yes but only if you're comfortable in an environment with high levels of ambiguity and constant change. A place where your opinions matter right from day one, so you better have them and not be afraid to speak up.

A place where "doing what you're told" is more often "questioning what you're told". A place where you can do mistakes, learning from those mistakes to set example of bringing changes for your own development. A place where you can't just work on auto-pilot completing your tasks but where you're pushed to think out-of-the-box. The good thing about it is that at H&M we truly work together and help each other as a team, we don't just write slogans about it.

This role can also be the start of a career in H&M, if earned through great results, engagement and enthusiasm upon joining! So switch roles. Learn new skills.

Take on new responsibilities. Dive off the deep-end at H&M.
