PR Specialist

Design led innovators at heart. A creative and bold family business, proud of our heritage and Made In Sweden commitment. Free thinkers, occupying a unique space between art, industry and architecture.

THIS IS BOLON

Bolon is a Swedish design company, managed by sisters Annica and Marie Eklund, the third generation of the family to own the company. Under their leadership, Bolon has transformed from a traditional weaving mill into an international design brand with a list of clientèle that includes Armani, Google, Volvo Cars, Adidas, Skype, Missoni and Radisson Red. With a strong commitment to sustainability, we design and manufacture all our products at our facility in Ulricehamn, Sweden. Today, Bolon is recognised worldwide for our award winning flooring and our collaborations with some of the world’s most acclaimed innovators and creatives.

YOU ARE NEEDED

In recent years, Bolon has shown strong growth on the global market. To further strengthen our position and presence, we’re now hiring a PR Specialist with international experience, to either work in the Ulricehamn or Stockholm office.  

PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS

Before we look at relevant experience and qualifications, we always consider the person. 

We do this because our success is built on our people and this role is no exception. Like everyone else in our team, we expect you to be sociable, personable and able to work both in a group and on your own initiative. A positive approach, even when the pressure is on, is always – as would an ability to freely contribute your opinions and ideas. In the role of a PR Specialist, you are expected to alternate between strategic and operational work, know the difference between relevant and irrelevant news and be able to tell a good story. We are looking for someone who has a great ability to communicate, both in writing and verbally and a natural aptitude for creating and developing a personal network.

THIS IS WHAT’S EXPECTED

In this role, you will be responsible for press relations and global press activities. You have a passion for architecture and interior design and an established network within architecture, design and the corporate press. We expect you to have solid experience of digital channels, social media and how to work with influencers as a target audience.

We expect at least 5 years of experience of a similar role and/or a PR-firm or other organisation within the media sector. A university degree within the field of marketing or communication is desirable. Excellent spoken and written knowledge of the English and Swedish languages is a must.

WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU

For the right person, Bolon can offer an exciting and stimulating career opportunity in a creative and inspiring environment. This role involves a lot of traveling, about 25-30%. You will report to the Head of Marketing.
