The labor market is good now shown by the interest among participating companies. But how does it look for 4-5 years?

Thomas Dalmalm, Swedish Transport Administration: - Today seeking currently several specialists in the fields of Geotechnical Engineering, Rock Engineering and sanitary engineering. Many projects are being implemented over time, while we have large numbers of retirements. Transport Administration also has a strategy consultant to switch, that is, reduce the proportion of consultants and increasing the proportion of employees.
