Swedish jobs market - where there are jobs despite the weak market

Wednesday, 23 January 2013
As the Swedish job market continues to weaken, fewer areas in the jobs market have real skill shortages than would have been expected. But the gap between professions where there are skill shortages and those where there is over supply has reduced.

According to the Swedish employment services, in its latest, it employment trend report, "Where are the jobs?" presented at a press release, "the professions that have labour shortages are becoming fewer. But in five to ten years ahead, it is anticipated that there will be labour shortages in an increasing number of skill sets due to retirements and those in education would have caught up," writes says H�kan Gustavsson, an analyst at the Employment Service, in a comment.

The Swedish employment service expects employment to decline by 25,000 people this year, compared with an estimated increase of 7,000 people in 2012 (age group 16-64).

The availability of jobs is decreasing in many professions and in most of the counties, but despite the weakening of the labour market, the number of recruits is determined to be great and it is estimated to be around 1.1 million in 2013.

Unemployment is expected to increase in many professions and in such a situation, it is common for employers to increase their recruitment requirements.

"This makes it difficult for graduates to find a job, but also for other job seekers who are entering the labour market, such as those coming from other countries, "the Employment Service writes in the report.
Among the occupations with the greatest labour shortage in 2013, include careers in mining engineering, software and systems developers, doctors, preschool teachers, and building engineers.
