THIS IS US, YOUR NEW COLLEAGUES - THE REQUEST OFFICE
Request Office is a global team located in Poland, India, Sweden, US, Belgium and Brazil. We are as diverse of a team as it gets: by culture, gender, backgrounds, age, you name it! Everybody is different in most things except for one - we are all just kind human beings.
As a team we are responsible for contractor management, which means that we hire external workforce for Volvo when needed. We do that basically in two ways: time and material contractor and contractor work packages. This work is done in several different systems that exchange data.
Data. That's what we use quite a bit and yet need to use more and better.
THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY WAITING FOR YOU
If you join our team we will expect you to learn from us about the process and need and than show us what magic can be done with the available data. You will need to:
- understanding the daily work (contractor admin)
- understand the tools we use (Fieldglass, and some more)
- understand what data can be extracted and how (manually or automagically)
- experiment with how to group it and visualize it so that we can use the data to generate valuable information that will be understood easily (some Excel, but mostly Power BI)
- experiment with what, where and how can be presented so share information
- propose and discuss how the new information can affect our current processes
In a nutshell - we look for an independent collaborator. Willing to understand us and teach us.
THIS IS YOU
You are a student in your 3rd, 4th or 5th year of study, or you have recently graduated
You are available at least 20-30h a week (the more the better but timing does not matter that much, as we cover several timezones plus you will be rather independant)
You communicate in English fluently
You do something more than only studying – you are a member of student organization, student research group etc.

You love to get problems and just enough of liberty ad time to solve them yourself and yet - you are open to discuss your findings as you understand that the data itself is worthless and the value only comes from the way it is used.
AND THIS IS WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU
Dedicated mentor* who will support you in your further development during the program
(mentor* will show you how to get data, for the data work you will need to be self sufficient and use support groups - internal and external)
Possibility to work in international environment – let us show you in practice how it looks like
