SwedCham Career

SwedCham Career is a professional platform consisting of Nordic Career Fair, Job Portal, and Internships & Scholarships.

Career Fair

Nordic Career Fair is an annual professional event organized by SwedCham China (The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China) with jointed support from other nordic chambers and embassies. It is originated from the Swedish Career Fair which had over 30 exhibiting companies and 1000 visitors on average per year. The first Nordic Career Fair was held in 2021, Beijing.

Ranging from SMEs to MNCs, exhibitors at the career fair cover multiple industries. During the day, visitors also have the chance to participate in a panel discussion on the theme of Corporate Culture of Scandinavian Business.

Job Portal

As the Information, Networking, and Facilitator platform for our members, our aim is to help and support our members in different aspects. We have therefore created the new feature SwedCham Job Portal, in order to support in the challenge to find skilled labour. The Job Portal is free for the first 6 months of its launch for our members, so do take the opportunity to communicate towards the swedish – sino community with your job offering. The job announcements will also be published on our wechat account once per week, as well as on our Linkedin account, in order to spread it to the community. All the job postings will be automatically erased 1 month after publication.

We hope you will find the SwedCham Job Portal of great value and we wish you good luck with finding the perfect candidates, and to the candidates to find the perfect job!

Internship & Scholarships

Every Fall and Spring the Shanghai and Beijng offices recruit interns. The internships lasts for 3-6 months, and offer you the opportunity to peer into the Sino-Swedish business world, and enable you to start building and expanding your network, with experienced and diverse individuals.

The internship role include: creating marketing content and articles about Sino-Swedish businesses, planning and executing upcoming events, contacting members and member companies, and assisting in daily tasks.

Disclaimer: The internship is unpaid, thus it is recommended that the intern be registered at a Swedish university in order to receive CSN or be enrolled at a Chinese University in China for more than year. You must also have a foreign insurance that is valid throughout your time in China. Furthermore, you must cover  your own living expenses (including housing) whilst abroad.

Requirements: The internship should be relevant to your studies at either a bachelors or masters level. You should have excellent knowledge of English, and preferably in Chinese (Mandarin) as well. An intern with knowledge and experience in the service and/or marketing fields is preferable. In terms of personality, we are looking for some who is engaging, social, outgoing, and is able to execute tasks in a timely manner. Your time with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce should build on your knowledge, help you grow as an individual, and help you come closer to your personal goals; it is therefore important that you demonstrate an interest in the Chinese culture.
