Recruitment—is it a Match?
It all begins with a phone call. Our desire is to get to know you and find out what you need as you decide to make this career move. Once we understand your professional and personal situation, we can best match you with the clinic or hospital whose needs you also match.
We will gladly inform you of our services, the process and the support we offer throughout the training you will receive.
In addition to the phone call, the recruitment phase includes sending in your CV in English. Based on the information you send, we will match your needs with that of open job offers in Scandinavia. When there is a potential match, a meeting will be arranged, first via Skype and then if the match is mutual, a visit to the target country and organisation. The visit will include a tour of the area as well as visits to schools and other locations and services that are of interest based on your concerns and your family’s future needs.
When you and the employer both give the green light, a guarantee of employment will be signed and we will move on to the training phase in which the language, culture and healthcare system of your chosen country will be the focus.
Training—New Building Blocks of Communication
Your intensive language and cultural training will begin as soon as possible after your decision to accept a job offer in the Nordics and last until right before your relocation. The duration of the language training will be 18-20 weeks, during which you will build an entirely new skill into your life that includes not only new words and concepts, but also a new cultural and healthcare understanding as well.
Language training takes place face-to-face and virtually when needed. Your language teacher is a native speaker of your target language and will also be an indispensable wealth of knowledge about culture and practices you may be curious about. During your course, you will also have online exercises to support the in-class learning as well as an immersion into the healthcare system of the country you will be moving to.
An important part of successful relocation is making sure that family members also learn the language and culture in order to engage in society immediately.
Language training may be given to spouses as well, either during the training phase or upon arrival, as best suits your situation. Please don’t hesitate to discuss your needs with us.
Relocation—Making a New Home
One of the reasons we view a trip to the target country before the beginning of the training as important is for you to get a better grasp and “feel” for where you will be working. Starting from that moment and throughout the training, we are involved in preparing for your arrival, all in close consultation with you and your family.
Our relocation staff is happy to present you with options and lay the groundwork for your move to the Nordics.
We do this with the very concrete preparations like finding a school for your children and a home to live in, contacts upon arrival, recreational facilities and how to set up things like internet, phones and banking.
But most importantly, during the training we help make sure that all your professional, academic and legal paperwork is in order and in accordance with the specifications and regulations of your target country. These must be in order before the course ends to ensure your ability to start working immediately when you arrive.
Working—New Rhythms of Life
Starting work is the culmination of all the hard work and the endless verb practices in class, the answer to the questions and doubts throughout the journey, and the longed-for reality of a dream that began months before.
Working in the Nordic healthcare system means a better work-life balance than in many other countries, job security and good working conditions.
Each organisation varies in its requirements and working policies, but these will be clear to you from the beginning of the process. You will be working in well-functioning healthcare systems with modern technology and equipment as well as a well-trained team of colleagues and the possibility for additional skills development through training.
Your success in working is enabled by your language and cultural skills, but also your family’s wellbeing.
During this phase, we are here to answer your questions and help find the services your family needs to integrate into society. Often these are through kid’s clubs, hobbies or other services. We are with you each step of the way.
Targeted Mobility Schemes—Financial Support for You
You probably have a lot of questions about how to cover all related costs. is a European Union job mobility scheme to help EU citizens to find a job, trainee-ship or apprenticeship opportunity in another EU country, Norway or Iceland and to help employers find qualified workforce.
Through Targeted Mobility Schemes you can receive information, job search, matching and recruitment assistance and you may also be eligible for financial support.
The financial support is targeted towards the costs of attending an interview abroad, participating in language training prior to your relocation, the costs of recognition of qualifications or relocation to the destination country. We are always happy to help you.
