Following widespread layoffs during the crisis period Swedish – Japanese mobile phone company, Sony Ericsson is to start recruiting again. About 30 posts will be filled in Lund, Sweden according to various new networks.

The area where the recruitment is said to be growing is in the region of project managers with engineering to include antenna design and system architecture. In addition, the company seeks about 20 skills to the development departments in Beijing and Silicon Valley respectively.

"We have not had any new appointments in a while and then it's a good position to fill the gaps, both with the same skills we had before and with new skills which reflect our focus on smartphone handsets, "said Mats Bark, head of internal communications, to Rapidus, which deals with recruitment for Sony – Ericsson.


It is the first time since the crisis years that the company is employing more widely. Sony Ericsson has approximately 3,000 employees in Lund, of which 300 are consultants. The company returned to key profit last year and the first quarter of this year also showed black figures, mainly because of the focus on Android-based smartphones. Meanwhile, sales and market shares decreased.

Sony Ericsson could possibly go to Denmark to find workers, there where Nokia announced the closure of its Development department in Copenhagen. This will affect nearly 1,000 employees which Sony Ericsson and other can scramble for like piranhas.
