The Swedish Public Employment Service will employ an additional 2000 because of extra funding the Swedish government has given to handle "the increased pressure" on the authority during the recession. 1000 will provide job search assistance, and the other 1000 will work specificly with integrating people on long sick leave to the labour market. The recruitment process has already started and the first hirings will be completed in November.
