The project is for you who:

About Nordisk Jobløsning

We created the Nordisk Jobløsning project because we believe that an integrated Scandinavia is a strong Scandinavia. A lot of the problems the Scandinavians face can be solved by opening opportunities to make use of each other across the borders. This is also applies to the job market where there is often a big difference between which types of competences are in high demand, and which countries these competences can actually be found in.

Many, especially graduates, are experiencing difficulties in using their education to find a job that matches their qualifications. As a result, many are facing challenges with long-term unemployment and problems with unemployment benefits. Our goal is to help break down the barriers that hold you back from beginning your new career abroad.

How can we help you?

Nordisk Jobløsning is the project for you who has the courage to expand your job market to entail all of Scandinavia and harvest amazing opportunities from this! We are a team that is situated in Copenhagen and works with the Scandinavian job market. We strive to solve the problems of unemployment and lack of competent manpower, which is unevenly divided in Scandinavia.

The project is funded by Interreg ÖKS, which means that we have a large opportunity to help you in your international job search completely free of charge for you. To us, personal service is always of the utmost importance and if you contact us, you will be assigned a supervisor to help you through the process from help with resumé and job application to settling in to your new home town. We believe that only through a holistic solution, is it possible for you to have the best time in your new home country, and we want to help you with that.

 

Vision

Our vision is to create a stronger and more integrated Scandinavia by increasing mobility on the work- and educational market.

 

Mission

Job search

You can either search for vacancies within the project geography on our own job database. Avoid having to login to different pages in each of the three countries in the project geography by having everything assembled in ONE PLACE.

You can also get customized help with your job search by writing to the secretariat morten@nordjobb.org and entering:

  • What competencies you have (education / interests)
  • What kind of positions you’re aiming for - job type (preferably with specification of specific job examples)
  • Where you would like to work  (if you have geographic preferences)
  • Other (are you bringing children / family or similar)

The secretariat then sends you 5-10 specific job posting we consider might be interesting for you. At the same time, we put you in touch with job coaches who can help you further (employers, interest organizations, other people from our business network).


Furthermore, we put you in touch with our consultants who can give you further help with specific job contacts in Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
