Foreigners looking for a medical job in Sweden is not a new topic – the trend has been going on for a couple of years now and the number of people searching for a job there is constantly growing. Why are they looking for a job there and not anywhere else?
Alongside Denmark and Norway, Sweden has one of the best medical care systems in the World at the moment and all medical professions are appreciative of the work conditions they wouldn’t get anywhere else. But what jobs are actually there for taking? Which specialists are bound to find employment in Sweden and who should go look somewhere else?
Nurses needed anytime
Like in every country, nurses are highly valuable. Their work is never done – taking care of patients is a 24/7 job. That’s why Sweden needs qualified nurses and is willing to hire as many as they can. Nurses from all over the world are welcome – Swedish system accepts any education from outside their country and with some training and an intensive language course there is a high probability of scoring a job in public health care. There is also the private sector which in Sweden is as developed as one would expect. Many people can afford and do get private nurses at their home. That’s one vacancy that is always available. And the payments? Much better than in other European countries. Search for your local employment agency and get a job as a nurse in Sweden – you won’t regret it.
Specialists needed as much as GPs
With constantly developing and growing healthcare system, Sweden is in high need of GPs and specialists and they’re willing to take foreigners as long as they can communicate in Swedish. That’s one of the downsides of living in Sweden, but most doctors don’t find it that difficult if they want to score the job. Employment agencies that help candidates find a suiting vacancy will often provide a language course to prepare their client for the employment process. All in all, they want you to get the job as much as you do.
