New sites guide international talent

As labour markets become increasingly global, companies and regions are intensifying efforts to attract and retain talented workers. The Gothenburg region is no exception.

The collaborative project Global Talent Gothenburg/West Sweden recently launched the sites and More initiatives are set to follow.

The welcome sites are filled with comprehensive information and tips for students, professionals and families moving to and living in the region. You can find everything from tax information and schooling options to starting a business and building a social life.

You can also meet people who have already made the move.

“The biggest challenges for me in the beginning were the road signs and the language,” says Ting Chen, from Hangzhou, China who works at CEVT in Gothenburg.   

In addition to the welcome sites, Global Talent Gothenburg/West Sweden will work to improve job opportunities for accompanying spouses and international students, and establish a welcome centre, among other things.  

The project is led by Business Region Göteborg, the West Sweden Chamber of Commerce and Region Västra Götaland, and involves key players from the private and academic sectors: Volvo, AstraZeneca, Chalmers University of Technology, the University of Gothenburg, SCA Hygiene Products, Volvo Cars, CEVT, Elof Hansson, Mölnlycke Health Care, SKF and Stena AB.
