International Staff Support

International Staff Support provides complimentary and in-depth support to employees and accompanying partners.

Moving to and working in Sweden

When you are planning your move to Sweden there are many questions and things to consider and prepare. We provide an online guidance with pre- and onboarding information. If needed you can contact us for personal advise. We collaborate with your host department to make your relocation and onboarding as smooth as possible.

Your host department is your first hand contact and they will assist you with the necessary documents and information needed when planning your move to Sweden. They will also give you an introduction at your workplace and information about local routines. The Human Resources Office are responsible for the central introduction programme held twice a year containing information about the most essential things you need to know as an employee.

Newsletter from International Staff Support

The newsletter focuses on topics related to your employment and your private life such as pension, declaration, private insurance. We will inform about activities in Umeå, other things that might be valuable and have interviews with "colleagues" at the university.

There will hopefully be a mixture of everything and something for everyone.
