Join our team and...
Swedbank and the Savings banks have a long history and a well-developed cooperation. A Savings bank is an own legal entity usually operating in a region and acting very locally. A Savings bank has its own board and staff. Today there are 58 Savings banks in Sweden that utilizes Swedbanks IT-platform as part of a partner-agreement.
Between 2009 and 2016 there were 19 mergers (and acquisitions) executed with the use of a technical setup called The Merger system (“Fusionssystemet” in Swedish). This Merger system has not been used, tested, or updated since 2017.
Two Saving Banks have decided to merge and an initiative is started with high priority. It is expected that more mergers will follow. .
Our team, Merger & Acquisition Services has the task to test and execute the requested merger and to secure competence for coming need of structural changes during 2024 and onwards.
We are a recently established unit within CFO Office in the BIO Group Functions division. Today we are seven people working in our team - but we are engaging many more in other units. We aim to grow with two Software Engineers and some other roles - to become ~12 people during this year. We are also responsible for annual Year-End tests in the Swedish environment and for coordinating tasks when a Savings bank changes its legal setup (sparbanksombildning)." Torgeir Wendel, your future manager.
We look forward to receiving your application by 22.09.2023.
