Attracting, developing and retaining talent are crucial to Sweco's long-term success. Our employees go to work every day and, each in their own way, shape the communities we will live in in the future. As a young employee at Sweco, you will discover that your strengths are utilised in the best way. We have been told that what differentiates Sweco is that our consultants are given full responsibility for their assignments early on.

Sweco is a company for employees who want to perform and create value for their customers. A typical Sweco employee is approachable and committed to his or her customers and has a recognised expertise.

We know that the communities and cities of the future will be diverse – encompassing a variety of family structures, ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs.
In order to do good work, Sweco needs to understand and meet diverse needs and perspectives as we plan and design future communities and cities. Sweco’s organisation needs to reflect the society we live in today, but also understand the foundations of tomorrow’s society. In addition to academic expertise, Sweco’s employees need to understand the people who will be living in the communities we, as experts, are involved in planning and designing. This requires diversity.
