On the job training – a road to working life

Job seekers have the chance of a trainee position through one of the municipal council's labour market units.

A trainee position can be at a municipal council department or in the private sector. To get a trainee position you must be unemployed, aged 18–64 and be selected for the labour market unit. This selection is generally up to the Arbetsförmedlingen (job centre)external link or support unit.

The aim of a trainee position is mainly to give you extra work experience but it can also serve another purpose, such as allowing you to try out a certain profession. People who for any reason have been away from the labour market for a long time are also given the option of a trainee position in the form of work testing or work training.

The labour market unit also has access to in-house training, including at Haldahuset Hantverk (handicraft), Aleskogens Hunddagis (dog day care centre), stadsbondgården Olofstorp (city farm), Byggåtervinningen (reclamation yard), Kretsloppan (recycled goods) and Återbruk Flygstaden (recycled goods). We also have access to places in various collaborative projects run by Arbetsförmedlingenexternal link (job centre), Försäkringskassan (Social security), Regionen (county council), municipal council departments or companies, or private sector companies.

If you have a mental disability or illness, CLAVIS can support you to take up employment.

Unemployed young people aged between 18 and 24 are a prioritized target group and the labour market unit runs a number of different activities and projects aimed at this target group.
