Job Description

At H&M Group, we are constantly striving to empower our colleagues in protecting our customers, our business and our colleagues against cyber threats. We are now building a team of experienced Cyber Security Architects that will enable our business operation to become secure and resilient.

Company Description

At H&M Group, we believe in making great design available to everyone. It’s essential in everything we do. Our family of brands — H&M, COS, Monki, Weekday, & Other Stories, H&M Home, ARKET, Afound and Itsapark — offer customers around the world a wealth of fashion, beauty, accessories and homeware, as well as modern menus with fresh and local produce at some of the brands’ in-store eateries.

But design is so much more than just products; it’s about clever design processes, efficient product flows, creating experiences that enrich, and smart solutions that benefit all our customers.

Sustainability is always at the core of our business. Not only because we like... to do what’s right — but it’s also beneficial for our business. We will continue to push for change and lead the way towards a more inclusive and sustainable fashion future.
