Nearly one in five Swedish employers who will want to employ finds it hard to get the right skills, according to a survey of 750 companies from recruitment firm Manpower.

The biggest shortcoming is that the craftsmen such as carpenters, welders and masons, with proper training and experience.

Other professions that are difficult to recruit are cooks, technicians, vendors, forest and agricultural trained staff, senior managers, engineers, drivers, sales and middle management.

Could this be cause by the fact that those with such skills are non Swedes –looking or that the racial discriminatory Swedish job market has chased away some of the best skills to laying carelessly on the streets of London.
Swedish employers should show that they are able to open their companies to all with skills not only the ‘best looking human’.
