Work and finance

At Sweden's Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen), you can get information about vacant positions. You can also receive help from both the Public Employment Service and the City of Malmö if you would like to start your own business.

If you are unemployed, you can receive:

  • support and service
  • occupational guidance
  • advice about how to find work or placements (practical work experience).

You can participate in the Public Employment Service’s establishment programme if

  • you have recently arrived in Sweden and have received a residence permit due to your status as a refugee or being in need of subsidiary protection, or if you are a relative of such a person, and
  • you are aged at least 20 years but are younger than 65 years.
