The central function is headed by Chief Digital Officer (CDO) Mikael Cato.

To develop select Digital Capabilities and in those, drive steep change in maturity across the organization
To Inspire, challenge and work jointly with key decision-makers to set the Digital direction for Scania and ensure the Digital transformation gets embedded and driven throughout the business
One of the capabilities critical to the success of the digital transformation is Customer Experience. Sitting centrally within Scania but with a global remit, the team will put in place the key building blocks to improve Scania’s CX maturity and create a framework so that customer experience and insights can truly influence the strategic agenda.

What you will do

As part of the Customer Experience (CX) team within the Digital Office, the person we are searching for will bring experience and strong skills around CX, with experience working with customer journeys and a good understanding of what drives good customer experience. Your role specifically will be to put in place the Scania-wide approach to Customer Research. Some of this has started, but this role will further develop and own the overall framework, and both collate existing and develop new customer research and trends. Important in this will be strong skills around research, trend analysis, and knowledge of the logistics and transport solutions sectors.

Within the CX team, you will work with colleagues with expertise in CX metrics, journey and service management, and other CX capabilities. The team is primarily about capability building. While initially there will be a need to be hands-on yourself to establish the foundations, prove the value of customer research and gain momentum, in the medium term the objective will be to have frameworks in place to enable others to use these approaches. Key to the success of the role will be working closely with stakeholders from across Scania. Collectively, we will establish the CX foundations and ensure this is used to driven transformation across Scania.

The main tasks are the following
Define and put in place a framework for customer research to provide journey centric view of Voice of Customer (VOC), which will include a regular cycle of a refresh to ensure it remains timely and relevant.
