Work experience placements for residence permit holders
If you live at one of the Swedish Migration Agency’s housing facilities and have been granted a residence permit, we can offer you a work experience placement programme. Please note that you need to have a Swedish social security number or a co-ordination number to receive a placement.
If you’ve been granted a residence permit as an asylum seeker, a person with subsidiary protection status or a relative
Then you may be entitled to so called “introduction activities”. They are designed to help you learn Swedish, find a job, and become self-sufficient as quickly as possible. Watch the film below to learn more about how we can help you, and how the introduction activities work.
If you’ve been granted a permanent residence permit
You can read more about what this means on the Swedish Migration Agency’s website.
If you’re entitled to introduction activities you may also be eligible to other forms of support aimed to help you get a job. Below, we’ve listed the various kinds of support that we may offer newcomers to Sweden. Contact us to find out exactly what applies to you.
Are you an asylum seeker waiting for a decision on your asylum application?
When you apply for asylum in Sweden, it’s wise to prepare both for being allowed to stay in Sweden and for your application to be rejected. If your application for asylum is approved, you will need to learn Swedish, find a job, and become self-sufficient as quickly as possible. We’re here to help you get started.
Do you need help to be able to participate in our activities?
It’s important that you participate in the activities that are designed to help you get a job. If you have a health issue or disability that affects your studies, work or activities, you need to tell us about it. We will then work with you to determine what kind of help you need to be able to participate in the activities. Read more about it in the leaflet.
