New members of the Sweden forum, introduce yourselves here - 2023

Hi all,

Newbie on the Sweden forum? Don't know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country,
or to tell us more on your expat projects in Sweden if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

I am not new to Sweden though never lived there. My business career introduced me to the Swedish life through the employment that I got with a Stockholm based Company which in the 70s started Sportswear clothing manufacvturing in Malta.

Through the 70s and 80s, I travelled often to different parts of south Sweden interacting with fellow Swedish colleagues.

With great regret, I lost contact with most of these colleagues.

That's awesome hope you can find them again

Hello everyone. I am not yet in Sweden but I am interested in moving to Sweden with my family and settle. I am in need of a job in the Hospitality industry and my wife is a qualified Caregiver. So if there is anyone who has information on how we can secure jobs for the purpose of getting a work permit from outside Sweden that would be greatly appreciated. We are based in South Africa at the moment. Thank you in advance
