Eventful career for Alejandra

“I feel younger, because I’m learning something new every single minute”, she says.

Alejandra became HR Director for the Volvo Group Argentina in 2012,

led HR projects in Chile and Colombia and at one stage was even acting MD for Argentina. But after seven eventful years, she felt she needed a

new challenge and so she took on a short-term assignment in Sweden working for the Volvo Trucks’ global HR team.

“It was never my plan to go to Sweden,” she says. “It was so far away. But, when I heard about the opportunity, I thought I had to try.”

I’m learning something new every single minute

Alejandra’s six-month assignment proved so successful that she extended for a further two years and will remain in Gothenburg until 2020.

“I’m really proud that I survived the Swedish winter”, she says.

For Alejandra, the global spread of the Volvo Group means that there are always opportunities, but it is up to the individual to pursue them. “Everybody is responsible for their own development – you have to take the lead. And, when you do, the Volvo Group values and the HR community are ready to support you.”

Growing in the Volvo Group
As a global company, the Volvo Group offers numerous opportunities for an international career. Alejandra is just one example of people who have packed up and taken on new roles in new countries, while staying within the Volvo Group.
