”Sweco plans and designs the communities and cities of the future. To do this really well, we need to have a high level of expertise in multiple areas. By joining the 100 Club, we are improving our opportunities for working with the Public Employment Service to find the right people for the right jobs,” says Tomas Carlsson, President and CEO of Sweco.
Sweco has major recruitment requirements. The goal is to hire 1,000 new employees, primarily engineers and architects, in Sweden during this year alone. In co-operation with the Public Employment Service, Sweco will offer internships or jobs to at least 100 new immigrants over the coming three years.
“The refugee crisis has created an extraordinary situation in Sweden and the rest of the world. As a company that accounts for a major portion of urban development, Sweco plays an integral role in providing constructive solutions. We do this by doing what we know best – being a good employer and offering internships and jobs to people who can take part in planning and designing tomorrow’s communities and cities,” said Åsa Bergman, President of Sweco Sweden.
