Wants to attract more people to northern Sweden

Published: 2 December 2021

With the huge investments in northern Sweden comes a great need to recruit staff. MindDig, a new talent recruitment platform, has been launched to create a national and international interest in job opportunities and development in the north.

The new talent recruitment platform from the so-called T25 collaboration, which includes LKAB, SSAB, Northvolt, Boliden, Skellefteå Kraft, H2 Green Steel, Mobilaris, Vattenfall and Luleå University of Technology. The purpose is to work together for skills supply; to increase the number of engineering students who are accepted and who remain after graduation; secure employment for the accompanying and offer support and help with housing, preschool and school and other practical issues.

All in the light of the major investments that are being made in the green transition. Investments of over one thousand billion kronor are planned for Norrbotten and Västerbotten in the coming decades and the population will need to grow significantly.

"Take responsibility for skills supply"

- The joint initiative is a way for Luleå University of Technology to be involved and take responsibility for the supply of skills and lifelong learning. We would like more of our students to stay in the region and this is a fantastic opportunity for them to create relationships with potential future employers. I hope that students will register, says Pär Weihed, Pro Vice-Chancellor at Luleå University of Technology.

In addition to job listings, MindDig offers plenty of information and inspiration about what it is like to live in northern Sweden.

Luleå University of Technology is Luleå's third largest employer and also has employees and students in Piteå, Skellefteå and Kiruna.
– We also have a great need to recruit employees and we work actively to make it easier for those involved, says Pär Weihed.
