A little bit about the city: Stockholm  

A gorgeous, green and peaceful city, there’s a lot to love about life in this city which makes up a quarter of the Swedish population. Often referred to as the capital of Scandinavia, there’s a lot of culture to be found here. This includes a mix of nightlife and variety of restaurants, however in spite of this, the city maintains its calm vibe. For residents, the warmer months are filled with barbecues, sporting events and time in the countryside. The colder months are also taken advantage of with skiing, hiking, sledding and ice skating becoming the popular activities for that time of year!  

Stockholm is one third water and one third green space, making for an abundance of natural beauty, which is great for all family members to enjoy. In terms of expatriates enjoying life here, there are a number of high-quality bilingual schools and other international schools which are perfect for expats who are relocating to Stockholm with kids in tow. One thing to be aware of is that home-schooling in Sweden is heavily regulated and is only allowed in very rare circumstances. 

Years of experience and salary levels are shown purely as a guide. We will only consider applications from candidates that can demonstrate the skills or experience required for the role.

Please be aware that while we would love to respond to every application we receive, due to high numbers we cannot guarantee this. We do however appreciate any time you invest into the application and will make sure to get in touch should anything in future more closely fit your skillset.
