Svenska kraftnät, a state-owned enterprise responsible for the maintenance of the electrical grid in Sweden, plans to recruit approximately 300 employees in 2022 and 500 in 2023 and 2024. The company is looking for IT specialists, electrical engineers, project managers, security specialists, and environmental officers. It will also open a new office in Gothenburg in November 2022 in order to prepare for the upcoming expansion. 

Svenska kraftnät has a central role in Sweden's green transition which is also the reason they need to recruit a significant amount of new personnel. They work intensively to find competent workforce and have for instance sought to establish cooperation with higher education institute Chalmers. 

Svenska kraftnät has currently around 900 employees. They have offices in Sundbyberg, Sollefteå, Luleå and soon in Gothenburg.
