TOGETHER AS A TEAM
We’ve embarked on an exciting journey to transform our shopping centers into destinations always anchored by IKEA, and that go way beyond shopping, offering a carefully selected series of activities, events and initiatives tailored to the needs of the communities that surround them. That’s what we call “meeting places”.
As a long-term partner of IKEA, we share our vision, our culture and our values, while what makes our businesses different is the way we fulfil our vision. If the idea of IKEA is to create a better life at home, we work hard to create a better everyday life outside of the home by developing virtual and physical meeting places where people can meet shop, and connect with their communities.
We have big plans for the future that involve expanding to new locations, opening smaller-scale concepts closer to the city centers, digitalization, and most of all, living up to shared sustainability goals. We’re constantly looking for energetic, purpose-led and creative people who’d like to join us on our journey to create meeting places around the world.
