Newsletter Manager Needed: Join The Newbie Team!

Would you like to join our core team? Then wait no more and get in touch with us right away!

The Newbie Guide to Sweden was born as almost five years ago as a side project. Since then, it grows fast into a whole new and exciting platform. We are currently looking for volunteers who would like to help us in this new journey.

What volunteering with us means

  • Working in a fast-paced startup environment.
  • A chance to be part of something that really makes a difference for Newbies coming to Sweden.
  • A chance to meet with interesting people and organizations that work with integration.
  • A letter of recommendation at the end of your volunteering term.
  • Please note that we are not currently able to pay our volunteers.

What we look for in our volunteers

  • Most importantly, we are looking for people who believe in the need for efficient integration.
  • You can participate in our weekly Skype-meetings.
  • You can have learning sessions with our mentors and develop your own projects.
  • You do not have to speak Swedish but you need to be fairly comfortable speaking English.
