With falling unemployment in Sweden and with a large number of people born in the forties and fifties soon due to retire, many sectors are crying out for suitably qualified and experienced workers.
Since Sweden eased the rules for labour migration two years ago, thousands of foreign professionals have been able to move to the country. An official list of sectors experiencing labour shortages is now published twice a year, giving jobseekers from abroad a good idea of the kind of skills Sweden needs.
Drawn up by the Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen) and the Swedish National Institute of Economic Research (Konjunkturinstitutet), the list covers dozens of sectors:"There are a lot of professions on the list, and given how the employment market is developing, it is only likely to get longer," says Håkan Gustavsson, analyst at the Employment Service.
