Working at Altor
Covering a breadth of businesses and industries, what we do varies a lot from day to day or week to week. It is never an us-and-them mentality, we work together as a team, which makes challenging tasks much easier and fun to solve.
The Altor team is based out of five offices in the Nordics and DACH, but we are truly one Altor and have a strong firm-wide collaboration. We have nurtured a culture which is just as entrepreneurial as that in the companies we partner with. Naturally, we seek to complement the skill sets in the portfolio companies, but we also share important traits with our entrepreneurs: such as having the highest of ambitions, being passionate about what we do, persistent and with the ability to be both bold and creative when it is needed.

“When I started working at Altor I was surprised by the sheer breadth of the work we do – no two days are the same!”
What we look for
Altor looks for unique individuals who are passionate about developing great businesses and who fits in a team environment. We look for those with particularly strong finance fundamentals, problem solving skills and intellectual capabilities, but also someone who has a genuine passion for investing and for developing businesses with a view for long-term value creation. The ideal candidate is driven and self-motivated, yet with a humble and unassuming approach.
We work together with external recruiting agencies who help us find new talented colleagues. We believe in long-term investments, both in business and in people. Therefore, we look for individuals who we see as long-term members of the Altor community.
Working as an Investment Associate
As an Altor Investment Associate, you typically split your time 50/50 between working with current portfolio companies, and assessing new investment opportunities. You will follow your portfolio companies from the first investment idea and work closely in partnership with the management teams.
While no two days are alike, you can be sure to continuously apply an analytical approach while gaining hands on experience from business development projects, board meetings, live transactions and negotiations – just to mention a few. We always work as a team and you will work side by side with and learn from senior colleagues, but still be responsible for your own workstreams and projects from day one.

“From the very first day I truly felt that Altor is a company that takes care of its employees and makes an effort to ensure that each employee feels as a part of the Altor family – I always feel welcomed in whichever Altor office I visit.”
