Professions where workers are needed

work shortage/نقص في المهن

Sweden has a shortage of people with specific skills within certain professions. There is, e.g. a great lack of nurses, doctors, system developers, cooks and teachers at the moment and this shortage is predicted to persist over the next five to ten years. 

Acquiring skills in any of these professions can be a way to break into the Swedish labour market.
