Your tasks will, amongst others, include:
• Day-to-day management of the Swedish holding companies while working with key stakeholders across the legal and finance functions
• Ensure that company filings required in Sweden are made in timely and accurate manner and ensure that the legal entity management tool is kept up-to-date

This is a business with fast technological developments. Verisure is always looking for new ways to protect and care for customers by innovating and exploring areas such as smart homes and smart alarms which brings with it its own range of legal aspects for the in-house legal team to support with.
For your day to day work, you will report to and work closely with the Head of Legal for Sweden and will report directly to Group Corporate and Transactions Counsel at HQ in Geneva for the corporate issues.
The marketing hub for Verisure Sweden is in Linköping and you will be expected to spend 1-2 days a week working out of Linköping. Intermittent international travel can also be expected.
