Swedish state-owned electricity transmission system operator Svenska kraftnät has announced it will recruit around 100 new employees during the coming eight months.

The recruitment of new employees will start immediately and is expected to be finished at the end of the second quarter of 2019. The company currently employs just short of 600 people, and the goal is to reach 660 by the end of 2018 ending up with a total of 700 halfway through 2019.

The need for recruitment is a result of Svenska kraftnäts' steady growth during the past 10 years, its increasing international collaboration and expansions in the core distribution network. Upcoming changes in the energy market increases the need for experts in several areas, especially in IT and digitalisation.

Svenska kraftnät underwent an extensive process of internal restructuring during the past year, which highlighted the need for key competences in several departments. The company hopes to fill the observed needs with this recruitment campaign.
