Marketing and Communications roles
We have many different opportunities available for Marketing and Communications professionals. This is an overview of the kinds of opportunities in each area:
In Marketing, our process starts with having a keen understanding of a customer’s business, operations, objectives and the challenges they face. We then develop solutions to help drive our customer’s business as well as Ericsson’s business. We analyze the market, our customers, our competitors, our growth plans and offerings and define our wanted position and priorities. We develop the overall strategic and tactical direction and drive content creation that will shape the market, motivate investment decisions, create preference for Ericsson’s offerings and position Ericsson as the preferred partner. Our areas of expertise include Government & Industry Relations, Marketing Content Activation, Marketing Content Creation and Business Intelligence.
In Communications, you will be involved in developing brand and business strategy. We strengthen brand perception and build brand equity through effective global activities, ensuring a consistent, recognizable Ericsson identity. We also build competence and engagement around Ericsson’s brand amongst employees and external key stakeholders. Part of our process includes driving perception and maintaining relations with external parties such as press and media, analysts, opinion formers, general public, investors and other external stakeholders. Additionally we drive internal communication activities to secure engaged employees who live the brand while coaching the development of communicative leadership among managers. Key areas of expertise include Brand Management, External Communication, Internal Communications and Web Management.
With overarching responsibility to support customers and drive our vision for The Networked Society, our professionals in Marketing and Communications perform an essential function for Ericsson, significantly contributing to the success of our organization.

Important notice: fraudulent job offers
It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.
Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.
Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
