Career development

Working at Ericsson means having the freedom to take your career in many different directions. It also means developing within the supportive structure of a big organization, with clear development plans, training opportunities and career paths.

We advocate and support proactive career planning for all of our people. Our objective is to empower you to achieve more in every role or project you undertake, giving you the understanding, tools and guidance you need to take control of your career and progress in a direction – and at a pace – that suits you. It can involve classroom learning, on-the-job training, mentoring and ad hoc Learning and Development initiatives. We call it ‘Career Agility’, because it helps to ensure that every one of our people can adapt to deliver the truly agile software solutions that modern businesses require from Ericsson.

Career and competence model

In an organization like Ericsson, there is a constant flow of opportunities. It’s exciting and invigorating and, for people who share our love of discovery, there’s so much to explore. In such a fast-paced environment, the challenge is to identify and grasp the opportunities that are right for you. That’s why we invest so much time in ensuring we have effective Career Development structures in place, right across our global business.

The Career and Competence Model ensures that every one of our 90,000+ people can visualise how their career can progress in a consistent and clear way. The Career and Competence Model applies to every role within our organisation and it outlines three clear steps to success:

We clearly outline the requirements of each job role, so that expectations and performance are understood for every role, right across our organization.

Demonstrates how an individual can develop and progress within their role, taking on more responsibility, improving their own performance and demonstrating clear leadership.

Each role profile includes specific competencies which are also tailored to each function and region.

The career and competence model ensures that career opportunities and competence requirements in the whole organization are transparent to line managers and employees. So it’s a vital part of ensuring that you can enjoy an exceptional career experience, enabling informed decisions about how you develop to make the most of your Ericsson future.
