Innovation and expansion provide an exciting environment at ASSA ABLOY EMEA for people seeking a career, not just a job.

EMEA has changed a lot in the past few years. We have moved from being a mechanical lock company to creating and selling the full range of door opening solutions.

Added to this is a true spirit of innovation – a quarter of all sales today are in products that we have developed in the past three years – and expansion out of our Western European stronghold into the Middle East, Africa and Eastern Europe.

This creates a dynamic, high-paced environment, which, combined with our non-hierarchical approach, means people throughout the organization are called upon to make fast decisions with the information available at the time.

As a division we are also constantly looking to the future to secure the skills and leadership we need to keep our position as the market leader. In this respect, we want people who are committed to a career with ASSA ABLOY, not just looking for a job.

We want to know your aspirations – where you want to be in five, 10 years – and why we should take you on. This means knowing enough about the company to be able to put your potential position into context and explain concisely how your experience makes it a good match.

In return we will give you an environment to grow as a person, to grow as an employee and to develop a career.

The EMEA Leadership Program (ELP) is a good example of how we do this. Split into four modules over one year, the first three modules focus on leadership training and team exercises based on real business situations, and the fourth is an opportunity to present a business case to members of the EMEA Leadership Team.
