Swedish National Labour Market Board
Institution: Swedish National Labour Market Board
Theme: Institution and HR Management
Implementation Date: Jan 01, 1995
The Swedish National Labour Market Board web site offered services for job seekers, employers and their businesses. In 1995, the Swedish National Labour Market Board launched The Vacancy Bank, where all vacancies reported to the employment offices in Sweden were published on the Web.

The vacancies have been supplemented by a range of interactive services to support the unemployed and those seeking a change of employment in their search for new opportunities.

In addition to the advertising of vacancies, job seekers are able to upload their CVs so that potential employers can match skills and competencies to their vacancies. The service also includes the setting up of a range of databases covering such specialist areas as education, art, photography and the performing arts. These serve the dual purpose of advertising vacancies and the details of job seekers with these specialist skills who are seeking work.

Various types of labour-market information, including labour-market conditions in different parts of the country, provide further background information together with information about job content and other details on a range of occupations.
Impact: This well-designed interactive project has allowed employment service staff to spend more time using their specialist skills of counselling and supporting the long-term unemployed. It has also paved the way for an extension of the service at the pan-European level.
