Are you a graduate from Industrial Engineering or Management with your sights set high for your career? Do you want to work close with senior management and learn the ins and outs of the role as CEO? Are you willing to push your development into hyperspeed? Here is your chance to be an Executive Trainee to our CEO and co-founder Dimitris Gioulekas.

Who are you?

You have probably recently finished, or are about to finish, a degree in Industrial Engineering or Management that will graduate at the top of your class. You have incredibly high ambitions for your career and want to maximise the opportunity to learn from one of the best. We believe you to might a technical degree combined with deeper insights into business administration and management.

It’s a bonus if you have experience from running one or several side-projects during your studies. 

As a person you’re considerate, communicative, and down-to-earth, enjoy working in teams, meeting new people, learning new things, and sharing knowledge. You are passionate with a forward leaning attitude and ambition to become best in class. Your energy and capacity level is high, and you like to work a lot and learn a lot in a short period of time. You also like solving difficult problems, breaking them down into components, and working with a team to find the best solution. 

You're self-motivated to the point that we will not have to point out the next task for you to do, but rather that we can rely on you to consistently move forward without external involvement. For Knightec, communication is key. Both internally and externally. We think you communicate fluently in Swedish and English.


What will you do?

You'll be working directly with our CEO for a period of 18-24 months and be a part of his day to day work and long-term challenges. This might include but not be limited to:

  • Produce high-quality presentations for clients, partners, employees and prospective M&A-candidates
  • Act as the CEO:s communication liaison
  • Be a part of managerial meetings and producing actionable notes from said meetings
  • Handling any and all bookings of meetings, travel appointments and prep-work for meetings


What's in it for you? 

Let's be blunt about it. If you have your sights set for a C-level role in the future this is how you want to start your career. Simple as that. You will have full access to the ins and outs of running a company like Knightec during one of the most exciting times in our history. That's the pitch. 

You will have a lot of responsibility and freedom, but also wonderful and competent colleagues, and a manager that is present and supports your career development. Due to the level of sensitive information you will be privy to, your ethical compass and level of integrity is of the highest standard.

Our CEO has won several awards for his inspiring leadership and the growth of Knightec during his leadership speaks for itself. You’re also invited to join our project to inspire young teenagers in disadvantaged areas to continue studying, our collaboration with Engineers Without Borders, and Vera, our network for equality.
